    My 402in/oz servo maxes out the saver even with washers... just a heads up. One less issue to trouble shoot yourself with those monster servos and tires in there.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I've modified a few machines to use the brake disc.

    T-Maxx brake disc, p/n 4964

    Modification to parts consists of:
    • widening (toward the outside edge) every other pair of the holes in the disc; and
    • shaving the inside of the gear cover to clear the slipper assembly since it is now slightly wider due to the brake disk being wider than the slipper pads.

    I've got an awful lot of use on these discs, both with ERBEs and Summits and wear is negligible. However, the "sweet spot" for the slipper adjustment seems a lot bigger.

    I have the Hitech 79?? (forget exact model but I think it's the 7950), just over 300oz/in. I feel like it was a bit sluggish with the slingers when crawling.

    Have you put any washers in the servo saver?

    Not yet but i am still running stock tires and everything seems to work fine. When the big tires go on i have a few ideals to test . Maybe adding a smaller spring or some hard rubber in the center of the servo saver spring ,finding a bigger spring at the nearest auto parts store , or just replacing the spring with a thick aluminum spacer if all else fails.

    That was directed toward Mr Hammer... his steering will probably feel sluggish if he hasn't tightened up that servo saver.


    With the spring being cone shaped, I have not even tried a standard straight spring... it would be interesting to see if a straight one will work or not. That would open up quite a few options if it will!

    Nice Raptor body...been looking for one of those...not sure if the toy is d/c-ed by the manufacturer, but it looks great on a summit may work well for a slash crawler project, too..

    Jimmie,
    Never tried fussing with the servo saver as I have no experience doing so. It's on my to do list for the weekend. Will post results ASAP. Thanks for suggestion!

    Adding a washer to compress the spring in the servo saver to tighten it up so as to make it harder for it to give which directs more power into turning rather than the flex of the saver.

    I have a body washer in mine.

    Does anyone know if the Integy gear box/transmission for the Erevo will work on the Summit? From the one and only pic of it i cant tell if it has the Hi/Low shifter .It looks as though the stock Traxxas Erevo and Summit trans are the same but on the Erevo trans they just put a blue plug in the hole where the shift rod should go. I'm just wondering if Integy machined the hole for the shift rod or if they just totally left it out.

    The Integy description is specific to the E-Revo. That's strike one. The product is Integy. That's strike two and three.

    Really not alone... looks nice is all they do. Their parts are great for shelf queens though!

    They are not true billet machined aluminum parts... they are cast and then machined. The casting process allows pockets of air to exist throughout the aluminum making it quite weak.

    Wow 3 out of 3 not looking good for Integy. Does anyone make an aluminum trans for the Summit that's not junk?

    Made some dual rate springs to help with the extra weight. I just chopped about 3/4 of an inch off each end of a silver rated spring and soldered that onto some blue rated springs

    Decided to go with a Hot Racing slipper clutch. Its got 1 large clutch pad instead of several small ones. If it starts slipping too much i think it will be easier to make just 1 aluminum clutch pad.[IMG][/IMG] Had to shave down the ends on the 3 screws that hold it to the spur gear [IMG][/IMG]

    Does anyone make an extended aluminum chassis for the Summit? Only need it to be 2 inches longer to fit the big bodies.

    Kershaw Designs makes a 5T conversion for the E-Revo which is the same chassis? Don't know if it would be too much of an extension though..

    That one is gonna be to long at around 22 inch wheel base. The stock Summit is around 15 inches so I need one around 17 inches for these bodies which I believe are 1/6 scale.

    Getting pretty close to having the Summit stage 1 up and running. Received my motor mount and several goodies today from L.E.M [IMG][/IMG]
    The only thing left is a good pinion the 1 on it now is to small and wont contact the spur. [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]
    [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] I know the wiring looks like crap but not a lot of room left to hide it all . Had to add a few y-harnesses and several extensions to get everything where i wanted it.

    Does anyone know of a rear motor mount for the CC 2028 that will work on the Summit. This motor is so long and heavy its gonna need a rear mount . I looked at a few pics on here of a rear motor mount for the smaller 1717 motor but nothing for this monster.

    I doubt it... not for how much motor he has. Front and rear mounts are going to be the most secure.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    So i got tired of waiting on the pinion gear so against my better judgement I rigged this cracked pinion to test run for a few minutes. I used the CC field link to turn the power down and tightened the slipper up all the way. Well lets just say the clutch has no chance at full power. It all lasted about 5 min until the pinion came flying off. So back to the waiting game.

    I saw that motor mount just a few days ago it looks much stronger then mine but not sure if my motor has the same bolt pattern as the 1717. After getting my motor mounted i noticed i only had about 2mm clearance between the motor and shock mount bolts . I cut some hard plastic and used liquid gasket to hold it to the bolt heads . Later i plan to place a thin piece of weather stripping on top of that so the motor has some cushion but doesn't move to much.
