    axle help

    I broke my rear left axle on my summit and don't know what to do. It is the inside part of the axle that connects to the car itself not the tire. I have the axle from the 1/16 grave digger and I dont know hot to take out the little ball thats connected to the car. Any help would be great.... thanks

    Here is a link for the 1/10 scale Summit:

    The 16th is similar, so it should help.
    Keep in mind you are going to be replacing the entire axle if you want to switch out to the GD axle.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    You should be able to use a grave digger inner with the summit outer.
    The grave digger axles are the same as the revo axles.
    I've had hybrid revo/summit axles on my Summit many times.

    Oh...and to remove that inner from your bulkhead...you need to remove the tiny pin using a tiny hex wrench.(same one you'll use to install the new axle shaft)

    The wire came out of the plastic part that came out of the battery. It looks like you can slip it back on but I wasn't able to get it

    it should snap back in...but it's tight. Make sure you don't have it upside down or it will never go back in

    ok...your soldered joint broke loose.
    That pin will have to be pulled out...and have the wire soldered back onto it.
    The the pin can be pushed back into the connector.
    Your LHS should be able to help you out with that.

    Maybe this will help with the picture issue:
    First, the picture needs to be uploaded to a web host; like photobucket, flicker, or even a locked folder on facebook (like I do). Then after it is uploaded; you view the picture online, right click, and select "copy image location". At this point you come back to the forum and select the third icon from the right; the one that says "image" when you hover over it, and paste your image location into the box in the popup, then click "ok". Then the picture will be shown like this:

    The pin is the metal plate that's inside of the connector.
    Soldering is the method that attaches that wire to the plate.
    Definitely take it to a hobby shop. They will know what to do to fix it.

    And just for the topic...here's your pic...
