    As long as you have a different receiver in each RC model, the IT4 will allow you to have different settings for each, no rebinding. Turn on the TX, select the correct RC in the list, then turn on...

    You might want to use the Castle software to turn down punch control. You will very likely break drive line components with 6s. Make sure you slipper clutch still allows enough slippage to help...

    I apologize for bringing this thread back from the dead, but I thought I might add my findings. I tried both the Boom Racing and Hot Racing helical gears. Since helical gears put more strain on the...

    The HPP hubs will stop all slop in the hub/ axle, but you need good condition, high quality bearings, or the pressure from the hub will cause "notchiness". I have the stock carriers, and they work...

    I have a 1900kv Viper motor (don't bother looking it up, they went out of business), and on 4S, with stock gearing, it is scary fast (for a 15lb truck)...

    I have the tires from the Axial Yeti XL, on proline 3.8 wheels. The tires are a tiny bit taller than stock, and not quite as soft. But they are thicker material, so they work well for ripping around...

    The stock gearing is a 14t pinion, with a 68t spur gear. I would not go higher than that ratio unless you are upgrading to brushless. Lower is ok, of course.

    I sometimes run the dusty motors cover, usually when it's cold a snowy. It's actually pretty effective at keeping the water (and snow) out. Just watch your motor and ESC temperatures. The cover...

    The MERV comes with differentials that can be tuned by changing the oil. Use a thicker silicone oil and it will give you more traction while still allowing some wheel spin for cornering. I have...

    I have the sv3 and 3800kv 550 brushless motor. I am using the 50t spur and even with a 31t pinion, mine runs ice cold. I am thinking of gearing even higher, but it's already so fast...

    I have the sidewinder 3 and 5700kv motor in my MERV. It would work for the 1/16 summit. I would definitely not use it in a full size summit.

    It will fit, but you need the mini summit body posts as well.

    I had the dewalt 820 motor with stock 14/68 gearing. According to the Traxxas telemetry app I had a top speed of 19 mph. I tried a 17t pinion, and got up to 22mph, but the motor got way too hot.

    I have them on my summit. I don't know how they compare to stock (I started with a roller). I made a video showing how they handle on the rocks:

    The easy upgrade would be the Dewalt 14.4v motor. Kershaw Designs has a kit that is pretty much drop in replacement for the stock motor. Not much faster than stock but with loads more torque.

    I have traxxas 500k oil in my diffs. I love the way it handles on my gravel driveway and dirt road and i don't need to lock the diffs on the rocks until the going gets really rough.

    I must be one of the lucky ones. I had the same initial issue, losing a piece of the driveshaft because I did not use red loctite. After reassembling with red loctite, I have not had any problems.
