Just run the slipper a little lose and you wont put all the diff ripping power down.
It's hard to call it a crawler, because It goes over "crawler obstacles" so easily. It just does it, and makes it look easy.
If you weight them, they can probably handle 40-45 for a while.
That's only if you stay in soft, dry terrain.
hahaha, I run brushless motors and i have only messed up a diff by over-tightening the slipper clutch nut.
Why are you blowing so many spider gears?
And are you sure about those revo gears fitting in lockable diffs? the output shafts might be different on a Revo than a Summit.
Dude, LiPo. Lipo is way way way better than nimh. Don't buy Nimhs.
I did ;) I got the need for speed:cool:
A factory built stock diff is about $35
HAHAHAHAHAHA dont buy those.
These are $8 a set
The only thing you need to do to a summit to put a brushless motor on it, is do adjust the slipper often and dont raise it up all the way. Now if you want to go fast, you're going to need to ballance...
Whats the max and constant amps on that motor/esc?
You need some dabs of this:
What is the Traxxas part number for the TX/RX
Theres no difference in the hubs front to rear. Take a close up shot and post it.
Those, are pretty sick. Revo axles don't fit with the diff lockers though. I have the center driveshafts and I'd sure like to try out a set of axles for the Summit.
I loaned the pinion I was using to my friend so he could finish building his summit. I ordered a new pinion but...
Check your servos are turning all the way and aren't stuck halfway. Check your wheels turn smoothly, if not its a diff. It might be a twisted driveshaft if your jammed.
Usually, if you think you have a problem with your tranny, your gear changer or diff locker switch/arm is engaged only halfway. ALWAYS check that first.;)
Can't knock a brother for tryin.
the brushes and commutator must be cleaned often. The carbon will build up and fry it sometimes.
LHS wants $670 after tax, not bad considering you just got the best RC monster truck out there...
How are these holding up? I'm looking for a set of crawling tires besides Canyon AT's
I can't find footage of them on a summit. If you got some, please demonstrate the crawling performance on video, and link here.
Proline needs to make some of these:
Here are some 40 series crawler tires from RC4WD.
I don't think Proline has any great crawling tires. I need some 3.8 Hot Bodies Rover Crawler Tires or some J-Concepts Rocx Crawler tires
