    It runs great but you will have to only run 6s and then it comes to life, 4s is nothing to that motor

    I understand a lot of you guys where having diff problems and I understand I been in the same situation with mines so I fixed it and its working great, here's what I did. By a new diff cup housing and diff case and get boca bearings. Put red automotive axle grease inside the diff cup and use a good tire glue for the bolts to hold the ring pinion on. Use grease because with oil it will get in the holes on the cup and the glue is pointless plus the grease works better for protecting the gears any way. Grease the bearing with the grease also and don't be stingy, when you have assembled the cup put the grease in the diff housing and don't be
    Stingy guys. Put it back together and you have a nice reliable diff. On the first few minutes of your run just break it in and then
    She's ready for anything on earth.

    Please watch the *s in your posts.

    By double oranges I meant stiffer springs for your rear shocks. Summits are known like all the other revo platformed trucks to have excessive sag in the rear. Double orange springs come stock on the front shocks and are stiffer. A lot of people myself included get a set for the rear as well, to help level out ride height.
