    NA`s Mini Summit Build

    I acquired a lot of 1/16 stuff last month: ------> LINK

    I started with a used VXL Summit, then swapped for the brushed system and AM radio set of a brand new Merv. It has Merv axels and RPM A-arms. Do I ever like the brushed setup for the Mini Summit. Much better at low speeds. I ended up using a stock servo just to be operational until other options are looked at.

    Tires for it:
    -Canyons with optional chains
    -Trenchers
    -Road Rages
    -Dirt Hawgs
    -Talons

    Any must have upgrades?

    Nice grab NA as far as upgrades you have the merv axles might get a set of steel pillow balls for it check the diffs make sure they are shunned and maybe change the springs I ram blue up front purple in the rear. I also ran trenchers but they are sticky and will cause to roll over more at higher speeds. Might cut notches on the front of the battery doors to run your batteries the other way keeps the extra battery wire from getting in axle and tire if not using parallel adapter

    Good read for sure.
