Just got my summit a few days ago. Broke a steering knuckle but have replacements on the way...but that's not the problem.
I knew the summit was of the slower traxxas models but I know they can go faster than stock. I want to be able to keep up with my buddies slash's and Pede's. Also need to be able to out run my dog
Looking for opinions on the following motor/esc.
The Novak Diablo combo.
or the more common Mamba Monster 2200
Both are about the same price.
Will be running with 2x Team Orion 6400MAH 7.4v 35c 2 cell LIPOs. Also have a spare set of Traxxas 3000mah 8.4v 7 cell NIMHs.
Anyone with first hand experience on the Diablo?
Anything else I would need to run said combos? Different gearing and or connectors?
Also are either of these water proof or will I be Plasti Dipping these?
Have another recommendation?
