Well it hasnt taken me long to realise that this little trucks need mods and upgrades so they can realy do what they look like the can do.
So this thread is just going to be a recommended part upgrade info thread for the SUMMIT 1/16.
Tell us the parts your using, the mods youve made and why you think there great.
Lets not make this what parts are horrible thread coz im pretty shore we all know what they are and if not like me, you find out soon enough!
So far all i can recommend are the e revos steel cvds. Bit pricey but so far so good. i poped an axle in 1st 20 minutes of driving. I had to shave down my a arm so when i screwed in the camber adjusters they would go in further so the cvd's had a snugger fit near the diffs.
Running stock spur gear and a 23 pinion. So far running it like this kept it noticably cooler with no shut downs. Top end speed is nuts but low to mid speed is much much more controlable, motor dosnt spin as mad as the 16t it comes with.
Next i flipped the trans gear, lost the top end speed but gained awesome climbing speed. Low down to mid speed is off the hook and like i said, crawling is much smoother!
Waiting for my motor heat sink and 2 fans to arrive.
Unfortunatly ive cooked my servo so thats my next upgrade. Im pretty close to chopping the chassis to fit in a 1/10 servo.
So, what parts do people recommend?
