    broken summit

    I have a big problem with my summit. The center drive shaft spins and goes into the little box in the back where it splits into the 2 axles what is that little box called? Something inside is broken and I need a replacement but I dont know what to search

    Bulkhead is the plastic housing that houses the differential gear and pinion.
    You Probally need part # 7079 but take it apart and keeps things organize the way you're taking out and the opposite when putting it back.

    Is it pretty hard to do? I think the gears in the broke or came loose

    Rear diff damage is not all that uncommon. Replacing the gear set is not that hard, but buying a complete read to drop in set is easier.

    Check out this thread:

    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Diff shimming is a time consuming process but it's worth it.
    Almost anything Jimmie recommends in RC you do, he knows a ton.

    I will be upgrading the front bulk head for an aluminum part and I wanted to know what else to upgrade in the process since the front bulk head involves removing a couple of parts. I currently only have an upgraded savox servo and I am still running nimh.

    So to make it quick and simple, what bulk head should I get and what other parts to upgrade?
