    haha, funny you should ask. I'm getting deployed to the other side of the world this fall. Unfortunately, that will put a pause on the work that I've started.

    I've actually had fairly good experiences with Integy. Purchased a front chassis brace for an SC10, a transmission for a Firestorm and a couple other minor odds and ends. The only issue I had was...

    But I think we can all agree that Hot Racing is a *cough cough* trashy company and you should never buy their products for both your own sake and as a matter of principle. I mean that as tactfully...

    I've had my stock Summit body with the original exo cage for...ten years now I think. The only thing I've had to replace is the rear top brace on the exocage where the body posts poke through. That...

    ^+1. He beat me to it. Single steering servo conversion or just stick with buying another stock servo if you're on a budget and just want to get running again.

    You could also try HPI Terra pins from the Savage XL. Pretty crappy for crawling but great otherwise. I've been running a set on my truck for a couple weeks and really like them for everything...

    Seriously. Rebuild your axles and use LOCKTITE 243 on the grub screws. It's blue, it's removable and it works great. Even when parts aren't 100% clean. Though you should get them as clean as you...

    All done! I do need to get rid of those twisty ties as they look hideous. Otherwise a very clean, reliable and well-performing setup on this Summit. Ready to go back to brushless again someday.

    I'm also running an external voltage checker/alarm because I've had issues with the LVD on the EVX-2 cutting in way too early. Eventually, I will find a good, clean, permanent way to waterproof the...

    Now you can see all the wires folded over in the box and packed in. The small electronic on/off switch is packed at the bottom beneath all the other wires. Apply some silicone grease to the foam...

    I've tapped a positive and negative lead into the battery leads on the ESC. These then run to a on/off switch and then to the BEC. Please excuse the twisty ties on the switch leads.

    External YEP 20A BEC that runs everything besides the motor. Overkill for this truck really. But it fits nicely in the spot where the secondary servo used to be. It has two separate output power...

    Electronic on/off switch plugged into CH3 slot. It's got a receiver plug on one end and a +/- power lead on the other end. I used CH3 because on this radio CH3 is just a button. So every push of...

    Here you can see how all the wires route up and into the RX box. Most of the wires route around front of the transmission and then up. You can see the JST plug underneath the other wires. That is...

    Correct. It is a JST. They can be purchased unassembled or with leads already attached on. I prefer to buy them unassembled because the crimping job on the assembled ones is usually very poor and...
