If you haven't already I would also suggest getting an aluminum servo horn as well. When I put in my saver and my Savox 1230, it ate the stock ones like candy.
Granted i have no experience with 700, but the dewalt motor is a very popular option on these forums and is what i run. The dewalt isn't faster than stock 775 but seems to be much tougher and has...
Currently it's better to stock up on spares and make sure your slipper clutch is well adjusted.
People who go with sensored brushless usually go with the tekin rx8/t8 combo. keep note though you're not likely to find a senerored motor that's waterproof.
As far as I know. yes, because they're essentially the same stuff just of a different consistency. I don't think it would hurt anything using it until you can get some thicker diff lube or some...
The fans won't be waterproof, and I can speak from experience that the heatsinks they sell won't fit the dewalt motor well enough to be effective.
This was my first thought as well.
Very nice. I would also suggest some more bracing. Maybe get creative with some panels as well
little bit of mudding:...
i'd go with a dewalt and a set of lipos or two. little faster than stock with right gearing, insane torque and still watwerproof. fairly simple mod too.
There's also a possibility of a lot of water in your tires making them heavier and harder to turn, making the motor work harder.
i've got 3 pairs and have had zero problems
it's a brand of lipos. i run 8200 mAh's as well. they're seldomly in stock but well worth the wait.
c is for the amount of amps the battery can supply. The esc/motor will only pull the current that it needs to so the more c the better. i.e. you can't have too much. it's when the esc pulls more...
my only complaint with the savox 1230 i'm running is it snapped my stock servo saver like nothing. i have since upgraded to the HR aluminum and it's running like a champ.
Only things i've broken on mine since I got it in 2010:
-4 drive shafts (my fault)
-spur gear(my fault)
-rear bumper mount
-servo saver arm when I when single servo, now aluminum
can you use the "sidewall protector" rings on the stock rims with slingers? just noticed most people aren't running them.
yeah it's a rather loud buzzer/beeping
I'm running a savox 1230 without a bec and have had no problems.
could your location be an issue? perhaps you just need to find the correct terrain that the summit really shines in.
you can get the body lower with a little modification, flip the front and back bumper mounts upside down and trim your front skid and body posts for clearence and the bottom of the body can be almost...
my preload rings are about 8mm away from the shock caps on all four springs, i'm running double orange springs on front and rear as well. have virtually no droop and rear sag is minimal.
You could try shaving of some of the plastic as well to make soldering easier. but i would just order a dewalt in the meantime, if funds are available of course.
absolutely brilliant! the cab cam is awesome as well.
