And I went with Geodes because of the offset. They will make my truck wider compared to the Gemini wheels. (.5 inch offset vs. 0 offset will make it 1 inch wider). I will also order Rpm A arms and...
The tires were 3.2s, meaning that the inner diameter of the tire is 3.2 inches. Geode and Gemini wheels are 3.8s, meaning that the outer diameter is 3.8 inches. That .6 inch difference didn't allow...
No-I actually went with geodes, but the tires are 3.2s. I am returning them in favor of Proline Badlands.

Okay I have decided to do an entire overhaul and replace what needs to be replaced and tune it up, as well as change the suspension and style to a buggy or stock erevo. This YouTube video should help...

Solved my problem.
I drove it with borrowed Nimhs and even with them it was AWESOME!

I am running the MM2 in mine - it is awesome!
Man you too? I got one for my Summit and at was defective! I have the replacement now. :)
I got LEDs and servo tape - everything is mounted now, All I need is LiPos!
I got my wire in the mail on Saturday and I soldered everything up on Sunday. I also ordered a new servo because one of mine wasn't waterproof. I am getting servo tape from HobbyTown soon so I will...
Oh ok sorry
Thanks Jimmie Neutron but I already ordered some of Castle's wire.
All that's left to do is solder my ESC into a series circuit and getting the batteries.
I will put a video up once it is running. For my wiring, I was going to solder the positive part of one...
