    So you would never swap out the dual plastic geared servos for a single, strong, digital one :wacko:?

    Another tranny slop fix

    I just read Jamann's thread about how he took the slop out of his transmission (good job, by the way) and wanted to share how I did mine. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, I only had a crappy...

    Exactly. To me, the building, tuning and improving (not just bolt-ons) is my favorite part of this hobby. Getting to drive it and see how it performs is just the bonus.

    If you're only trying to save money, I wouldn't bother building one. As to whether it's hard to build one, that depends on your mechanical ability and experience. I didn't find it challenging at all,...

    I built my truck from scratch and it's not hard. I don't know if I really saved a lot of money doing it this way, but just the personal satisfaction was worth it. I built my first hobby grade RC in...

    I have eliminated almost all of the slop in my 2 speed in my trail truck. I actually ran a single speed geared really low until I modded the 2 speed because the slop drove me crazy. But in a truck...

    Are you going to convert to a single speed?...

    Are you going to convert to a single speed? They're sooo much tighter and smoother with the single speed gear.

    Yeah, having to carry one of these beasts a mile out of the woods is no fun. I always try to run with another Summit and have a tow strap handy. Lucky for me, I have yet to actually break...

    You're right. Compared to other trucks there is no way a Summit is 1/10 scale. Heck, even many 1/8 scale bodies aren't large enough for it, the wheel openings don't line up.

    It sounds like the hitec was defective. I currently have a hs-65mg new out of the box that doesn't center correctly and the case gets hot after a few seconds (even out of the truck). But, this is the...

    It's funny, I built my truck initially as an Erevo geared low with a 775 to keep it simple but I have since added many Summit parts to make it more trail worthy. Now, reading your thread makes me...

    I ran a spool in my old E-maxx, in my 3903 E-maxx, and am currently running one in my E-Revo powered by a 775 and have never snapped one. I use the spool made by Traxxas. If you run on pavement or...

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Especially if the tab fits really tight. I have a set of gears here I may try this on when I get the time. I always enjoy getting out the Dremmel!

    I know what you mean. My daughter currently has a 2wd Stampede and wants a bigger 4wd. My wallet is cringing.

    I was thinking instead of cutting the tabs to fit in the holes, the wide spokes in the gear could be trimmed to make the hole large enough to fit the tabs without making them smaller. Hopefully the...

    Cool idea! My son pretty much did the same thing. He started out with a Summit and changed what he didn't like (or need) and pretty much ended up with an E-revo dressed like a Summit. I built my...

    I'm using the Proline Raptor body on my E-Revo and it's holding up well. I would say the detailing on it is pretty good also. The Jconcepts bodies are very durable and well designed IMO, but the...
