    I was running on an indoor offroad track, and with a single pack setup it wasn't good enough. I cut into the battery tray to mount the esc securely and still be able to keep the body on, so I wasn't...

    carnage: The summit also comes with a brushless motor, and it definitely needs the brushless power imo. So that mount is unnecessary unless he wants to have a brushed setup.

    If you wanna convert a merv to a summit, ALL you need are the long travel rockers and stiffer springs (i'm running the purple summit springs)... not different arms, replacement shocks or anything...

    You know what I think it is that makes these little guys more fun to run, the fact that although the bigger 1/8 scale brushless versions are in fact more fun to run, but cost more to power and...

    If you like the mini slash, you'll never pick it up again once you get a mini revo. Just my opinion. The mini revo handles like a dream compared to the mini slash!

    Page 21 in the user manual, the truck uses 60wt oil stock. Bump it up to 80wt and that will stabilize the truck and minimize rolling over.

    Try lighter oil, and less shock preload. But experiment with the different weights, i'd usually go thicker with no preload on my merv, i'm assuming for a crawler feel you would want thinner shock oil.
