I just bought myself a summit and I am wondering what are some good future upgrades in regards to motors and esc and overall upgrades that benefit the summit in all areas.
Congrats on ya summit and welcome to the forum.
Probably the most commmon ones are.
1. Swap out titan 775 for a 14.4v dewalt. A bit of modding is required.
2a. Summit comes stock with double orange springs on the front and double yellow springs on the rear, so you could buy another set of double orange springs (Part #5649) and swap them with the double yellow springs on the rear shocks, which means you will have double orange springs all round. this makes your truck a bit stiffer all round.
2b. Or you can take the double orange springs off the front and put them on the back and put the double yellow springs from the back onto the front. This reduces squat in the rear when accelerating and makes the front soft.
3. Swap out steel toe links and pushrods for red aluminium ones (part #'s 5338R and 5328X). This doesn't really benefit in the means of driving but it does stop rust.
4. As for the esc, i think a fair few keep the stock one but some use different ones and hopefully they will chime in.
Thats all i can think of so far... hope that helps

Summit; Spartan; Others yet to come
what mods and soldering and parts are required to install a dewalt 14.4v? and where can i buy one?
i would like to know the same thing RcTraxxas2
and one more quick thing... if it is 14.4v does that mean i have to buy different batteries and cant use two 2s lipos in the car?
good question RcTraxxas2
does it use all four esc plugs?
im pretty sure it does but i could be wrong
i dont have the 14.4 installed yet. but im doing alot of research first. try browsing these threads.
I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.
does the dewalt mod add more torque or speed???
It adds both because with more torque you can change your gear ratio to carry more speed
what screws do i need to buy separately or does it come with the screws for the mount?
