    ya got to love it... only had a few tweaks to do when i got it... had to reset the speed control as it was only going about 1/2 speed.. and the steering was far from centered and servos were fighting themselves..

    Hi guys, as I type this my Summit 1/10 is on its way. I'm hoping its not too intimidating for a summit newbie, my question as to not screw anything up is, do you folks recommend any specific tweaking on anything right out of the box ? Any tuning needed prior to enjoying the beast ?
    any tips appreciated
    thanks

    Go over everything make sure it is tight. Adjust servos according to manual especially steering. Never seen a steering setup properly adjusted from factory

    Concur with checking the steering servo alignment right out of the box! I've had mine for over 2 years now and it has been so much fun. This truck does everything!

    buikkid, first thing you should do is replace the rear shock springs with double orange springs (like the font shock springs) and that somewhat reduces the rear squat issue. You might also want to mess around with the shock preload too because it's very soft out of the box. The rest is really up to you and what you want to do with the truck.

    I've had mine for 2 years now and I can say with confidence that it is the most capable trail truck on the market and I've run with pretty much all the other trail truck types and Summit competitors out there.

    Edit: after few rounds of fun i decided to get lipo batts and heftyer tires.
