Simple, LT rockers (but with these you will need Summit shafts to handle the articulation), bigger wheels/tyres and a truck style body.
I would keep them for if you ever buy a new ATV and want to put the wheels off your current one onto it. That way you have the factory rims and tyres to sell the ATV with.
+1 on that. The summit isn't a speed machine and needs challenging terrain, if not it can become quite boring just driving on dirt and grass areas.
I fill mine all the way up and let the oil come out the last screw hole.
The spiders gears are ones inside the diff cup that don't connect to your driveshafts.
They stretch the tyres for the look. All part of the JDM scene at the moment..
As for brushed DeWalt is about as good as it's going to get..
You can get a cheapo 1/8 system for the same price, maybe a little bit more than a Velineon so why bother with the 1/10 system?
Planning on doing a big tear down on my Summit and am thinking of putting all the parts (minus the electronics) in the dishwasher with some detergent. I won't leave them in for the heat drying...
An upgrade would be Robinson Racing slipper clutch with the 6 pads or the Traxxas Aluminium pads on the stock clutch.
Mamba Monster 2/MXL6-S (depending whom you purchase from) are waterproof but a CC2200/MM2 combo will set you back almost $300 depending on where you live..
Taller tyres and stiffer springs so it doesn't sag.
Some people use 2.2/3.0 on LT conversions but other than that I don't think 2.2s would fit.
Providing you have the truck geared right there shouldn't be a problem.
+1 on that. You're taking away the class leading qualities of the Summit. So why not sell it to someone who will use it for crawling/trailing/etc and buy an E-Revo; purpose built for what you want.
The Summit already has bulkheads? As for a "spooler" which I'm guessing you mean diff spool, put both lockers in, exact same affect.
Happened to me on brushed power, only bearing failure apart from knuckles.
Your noise maybe be coming from your gear mesh as you've had the motor out it could be incorrectly aligned.
Have you cleaned the motor out? Could be a build up of junk.
Judging by the track widths of both cars I'd say they're too short.
Top show! :thumbup:
700HO offers a little more power than the 775 but still doesn't have replaceable brushes.
Most (including myself) use the DeWalt 14.4v, or 820 on KD, giving a lot more torque which in turn can be...
That post was 2010 :wacko:
Here's a couple of US hobby shop prices:
Wouldn't it be easier and smarter to have a look at the product listing/eBay/US hobby shop to find a price?
