    I got me a Mini Summit!

    I'm thinking purple springs all around, steel center, 50 weight up front, and 60-70ish in the rear.
    Are these different from the stock shocks? Should I go with a different brand?

    So I am ordering my SV3 in January, what else do I need besides the Castle Link? I think the bullets for the motor wires are different sizes....? I will have soldering equipment from my Spartan (adding Castle cap pack and Castle Polarized 6.5mm along with 10G wire).
    I already have a trailer guy for my Spartan (sells them on OSE forums)

    I'd just buy GH racing aluminum shock bodies and new springs...and use the rest of the parts from your stock shocks.

    I am sticking with this thread until my Summit is gone! Anyways ordered 4 HR knuckles and the sway bar kit. Also a 12G parallel harness for my future SPC batteries! Will order the SV3 and others goodies around the 10th! Let's keep it safe driving tonight!

    I hope you aren't wanting it to flex at all(as in rock climbing) because with the sway bar kit...flexing is gone.

    I thought each colored bar had to do with how much sway rate... Oh well I will use it in the rear and only use it for when I have my FPV setup attached. I think I am about to get suspended from eBay as I canceled an item and the seller is livid about it... I have a total of 6 unpaid item cases, 2 were miscommunications and the others were just a thought... Although I have spent probably $850 on there..

    dang...I've been dealing on eBay for over 13 years and have a 100% rating.

    I wish I could afford a FPV setup for one of mine.
    I heard about someone using a laptop and a smartphone with Skype making it work.
    I wonder how much lag there would be with that setup.

    I got me a Mini Summit!

    Have net heard anything from eBay yet, I added all my purchases and it ended over $1,110. Almost all of it is over RC with one $50 exception on a laptop battery!

    That was me with the iPhone and Skype. I have an Armor series case so I'm not afraid. I get full signal in my neighborhood with my phone and have fast internet so there is about half a second lag. The biggest problem is radio range! I have two way talking on mine and have it where the laptop does not send video but receives it so I can save some speed. It's just zip tied to the Exocage. Funny thing happened the other day when running, the video skipped out when I was at full speed and nailed a trashcan at full 2s lipo speed... Didn't break a part which I was amazed by! When the neighbors are out I can see them and talk to them from my couch!!!
