Not yet. Running it in the stock batteries. And I'm not overly impressed. My new Stapede came with a Lipo and I've run it for about 30-45 minutes and brely hit the 50%. I got out tonight , with dead bats, so I put in two lipos... Not matched, but both charged and brand new. I only ran her for about 15 minutes...but she ran like a race champ! I have 1 new Onyx 5700. I'll pick up another and dedicate them to the Summit. The trucks amazing and both my Summit And Pede 4x4 VXL amaze me in how well they stop!
Couple of questions.. Is it bad to run it full throttle in low gear. No flipping of the switch, just a short jump across some dirt?
When bashing around the beach or yard. She squats down a lot! What's the fix for this? Springs? I don't want to give up crawling but it's getting used for both. I could sacrifice "a little" on crawling if needed.
Is there a way to raise the body ? Just a little. To give it a bigger/taller look ?
Thanks for the help
To help with the squatting change the rear springs for double orange ones (the same as the ones in the front), you could put thicker shock fluid in the shocks also 70-80 wt.
Most people lower their bodies to help lower the center of gravity.
Tekin powered Summit
With the rear squat I started changing out the springs for the double orange. Did not like that by the time I had set the preload to stop the squat the rear was sitting way to high for my liking. Changed the oil and now put the original springs back in I personally find it better. Still playing with the preload but now I have the rear level the way I want it. I'm giving the adjusters about 1 full turn untill I get it perfect for me. I'm almost their now I'm just adjusting after my runs
i have mine locked in low gear permanently thanks to a bread tie (burnt servo) lol. when ever i go out to the lake to fish, i take my summit and fpv gear out and explore the unknown. its fun!
Is there a way to post pics? Or do I have to upload them to a server that I can use? Aka google docs or something. I took some pics on the rocks at the beach last week. It's still running like a champ. I raised that rear body mounts about 2 slots. It sits a little more level / *** a little higher.
Got my 2 Venom 5000 mah Lipos yesterday via USPS/ EBAY. Charging now ;-)
Other than a rare flip over... I hardly ever have to go get this thing unstuck... It will go anywhere. Take down small trees in the process !
They are addictive. Got my first one sometime in april and another showed up at the house this week.
