Hi all, still new to the RC world. I have had a Pede, Pede 4x4 that I made into a Slash, then it to a Backslash. I guess I can't make up my mind of what I like. So I went out and ordered the Summit. Should be here in a bout a week.
My question is what should I expect to break first?
Also have not even got it yet and thinking of upgrading it already.
What would be a good Motor/ESC combo to put in it to run?
With that being said how bout a good lipo for it as well?
Thanks for all your help......
This thread will give you some answers and get you familiar with the truck
Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
Personally, I'd say just drive it how it is for awhile and see what you think. Upgrades can come later. Just get some good batteries.
I didn't break any of the stock parts, until it got run over by a minivan, then I broke a lot!
Then summit is a pretty tough truck, and has some pretty tough parts. Just be smart with it. If the diffs are locked in low gear and you are bound up on a rock, don't gun it, you'll break some shafts. Don't lock diffs in high gear, and don't lock them while moving. Also, stop before shifting. Use common sense, and stock stuff shouldn't break too easily. Once you upgrade, THAN you'll start breaking stuff
Have fun, you'll love it! And welcome to the family!
I gots trucks and no idea what I'm doing!
I suggest the same. My and my buddy both broke a steering servo while crawling some construction sites. So this might be handy as well if you run across. Didn't brake anything other yet and we really bash them hard...
Thanks for all of your guys input. It will all help..
I've had mine about two weeks now. So far, I've broken an axle carrier, lower A-arm, and recently discovered the rear bulkhead is cracked.
I also found a bearing in the tranny completely rusted and disintegrated. (my fault for not cleaning it out soon after being run in water.). Waterproof: yes. Rustproof: no.
