    Summit Light Bar

    hey guys,

    i want to install my traxxas light bar tonight on my summit, is there anyway to do it without taking the motor out? Because I suck at setting proper gear mesh lol and I don't want to have to deal with it if I don't have to.

    You have to pull the motor out to get to the wiring, I would also tape the wire on the underside of the body so that when you forget to unplug the wire it doesn't tug on the LED wire.

    Here's a video on gear meshing that might help make it easier.

    I don't worry about it too much, I just move the motor out just a little to get that spur gear wiggle and tighten down the motor.

    I did mine without taking motor out. I used a small pair of needle nose plyers and a pic
