    I'm curious. The Summit VXL comes with a 30 day warranty. Calling Traxxas, they should have immediately mailed you out a new servo. Had one go bad myself, seems like a bad batch of initial servo's on...

    Jimmie and Arca both have very valid posts, especially the 90 degree rear clips - they get lost easily. Only other input I have is swapping out the springs. The stock ones are a bit weak, along with...

    Mudboynj, just to throw a few cents of opinion in, there are a ton of upgrade parts out there. As AoD points out, a delicate balance occurs with these little beasts. An E-Revo weighs somewhere around...

    There's been a bunch of discussion about how the mini Summit CVD's are weaker than the MERV's. Three choices: replace them with stock, replace them with MERV parts, upgrade to the Traxxas metal parts...

    Dear Woodwender,

    Doesn't matter the color. You'll probably buy a cooler top for it anyways, I'm hoping for a 1/16 Raptor top.

    I have Blue, but my vote is for white. That striped one somebody used a magic marker on...

    Straight up, forget the Slash. Flips too easy and has very limited terrain options. Is only good if you are going to run in sanctioned races.

    One of the video's on Youtube about 'rebuilding RC shocks' discussed the use of Team Associated Green Slime for helping shocks o-rings work better without leaking.

    I agree with AoD. It really comes down to how and where you are going to drive it. A Revo is more expensive, but gives you more terrain options. There is a reason the Revo is King of the Hill. A...

    Run them in parallel. You get the same voltage, but double the run time.

    (Series will double the voltage, increasing max speed, but has normal run time.)

    Play with it awhile. You'll get a feel for what really needs changing. Most of it depends on the driving style and terrain utilized. Get some LiPo's and a serial connector will really show you what...

    Go with Twisted's advise. Avoid using EZ Outs for small projects like this. They break too easy and then you have no alternative options, such as drilling it out.
