FYI I think the mini is a great truck.Love the concept.
Good work Pete V
Why does it matter...conflict of interest is why.
Again, no matter.
Many here know asking questions OR being honest just gets your warning level bumped up.
So I have allready dropped my...
I hear stories of these 10-18 min run times often.Really baffles me.
I have a pair of Duratrax 5000 DTX 7 cells.
I get 45-70 mins run time.
Much less on my stock traxxas whatever included...
Any trouble ever with bearings using just a Nimh 7 cell?
Is it just a lithium problem?
Does DADX2 work for Traxxas? Sure seems like it.
Not that it matters.
Sadly you can not always drive "smart"
I love hearing about "ground clearance" MFGs always rate the highest spot.
What matters is the lowest spot. Thats what gets hung up.
If the center of the truck is 9 inches high and the bottom of...
Ok whats the whispers about secret screws in the Xmitter?
Somthing about fixes servos?
I have no screws in mine?
Any ideas on this?
Whats the scoop?
No question : Duratrax 5000 DTX 7 cell
Get from tower hobbies.
I must ask this: I have seen several ( usually kids) people claim to have a "super summit" .
Is this a different version like the "platinum"?
I can not find it on traxxas site OR tower...
Granted, I do not just make non stop straight top speed runs.
That said : With mostly offroad grass and dirt,some 1 gear some 2nd gear....I get 45mins over 1 hour of run time. A bit of my time is...
You moved your packs?
I swapped.Back end is GREAT now,much much much better. IMO this is a must.
BUT now front end is way soft.
5.4 rate springs front AND back is the fix.
Truck should come like this IMO.
Easier to take the whole shock off and swap front to back or just do springs?
How many have done the front to rear spring swap?
Don't hear about this much.
does it help at all?
Any info would be great!
thanks in advance.
With a heavy heart I post this.
I still think the Pede is the best bang for the buck fun champ !
The most fun at any cost is the Summit !!
But man, having both is sweet :p
yea I have the stock 7 cell 3000 Traxxas and the blue Duratrax DTX 5000 7 cell.
The DT last long also.
Any person reading this, deciding to get a Summit or not......
GET IT !
Worth every penny.
Had my new Summit almost a week now.LOVE IT !
On my radar gun the stock Traxxas 3000 packs do 22 MPH. Duratrax DTX 5000 does 25.5 mph.Also the Duratrax has a bit more low end.I will assume its from...
Lowering the body, is fantastic !I think it looks better also.
Have charted the new summit since break in.Pack 1 max speed was 17.8 MPH. I am now getting 25 and better low end as well.SO...either...
Fixed front end issues.Read book, took adjustable rods off servo horns.
1 rod was 2 turn too long, the other 1 turn too short !I simply used the "template" in the book.Both horns are right at 7 DEG...
Wont bother with pics as 5000 exist.
Mine is the sweet yellow.
Came in nifty color box like other traxxas products.
Came with normal assortment of tools, books and goodies.
Came with 2 3000 7...
