    I've done this mod years ago in a very similar fashion to yours on my build, but used the stock radio with a punk RC steerign computer. search: My Summit Evolution

    I'd get rid of/or modify the servo saver you're using. The aluminum ones are notorious for not being able to break free when needed. The aluminum cam mechanism binds up and doesn't allow the servo...

    Agree with all the above. Many people knock the brushless setup saying they lack the low end grunt of the brushed system, but gearing will make up for that. I'm running a 72t spur and 12t pinion and...

    The last time I messed with the 70/30 setting I had to recalibrate the radio/esc. If you don't the esc will remember the inputs being for the 50/50 and respond accordingly. As you figured out, the...

    It sounds like your throttle trim is too close to the forward position and not allowing reverse to work. Go through the setup instructions and see if that helps.

    I finally got around to working on my "short-stuff" Summit project. Going to try and find another body, wheels, tires, springs, and narrow the control arms to give it a more scale appearance. The guy...

    Here is a little project I've been working on that I thought I'd share. I call it the "short-stuff" Summit.

    Specs:
    Tekin RX8 Gen II ESC
    Off brand 1/8th 2350kv motor sensored
    flipped motor and...

    I was wondering that too, what do you do if someone decides to pick up your truck?!! If you have some info on what equipment you used and would like to share it would be much appreciated.

    Or maybe the market is saturated and sales are slipping. ARRMA has there new truck out and it can do just about everything the Summit can. If the Summit is cheaper, then it would help secure further...

    SPC 8200's for the win. I'm running them with MMM brushless and I get waaaaay over an hour run time. In fact, I use my Summit to walk trails and at walking pace with the occasional crawling I get...

    If you still want to try a different bearing I would suggest the timken style that places the bearings at an angle so they can handle thrust and axial loads.

    I don't think a thrust style bearing would be ideal as the loads placed on the pinion gear aren't pushing against the bearing face nearly as much as they are trying to drive the pinion gear "up" the...

    I just run my e slayer without the cover when duning and no issues. Ok, well, nothing I can't live with as the spur shows a tad bit of wear due to eating sand. But hey, spur gears are cheap, lol.

    I'm running brushless in all 3 of my summits and e revo and I have to agree with the statement that if you want to go faster consider a faster powerplant. In my "crawler summit" I'm running 11/72 and...

    Ok, so the "c" is a measure of discharge in relation to the battery capacity. For ex. if you have a 1000 milliamp (1 amp) battery with 20c/50c. That means the battery can dump 20 amps continuous/ 50...

    I can't speak for the timing as I know nothing about the Novak systems. I'm running 4s in series and that is harder on the ESC/motor than running parallel and have never looked back. Running in...

    You "can" just throw the MM2 in and be good, but IMO you benefit by dropping the pinion about 2 teeth. You get lower end punch for crawling and still faster than the stock motor. I'm running 11/72...

    Yeah, that sounds like you have a grub screw on the pinion gear hitting the spur gear. Try and reposition the pinion gear and pay attention to where the grub screw is when it rotates around to the...

    Funny thing is I have that wagon (and the truck too), lol. As far as the motor is concerned, drop to a smaller pinion and you will see a drop in motor temps. 175 is still ok, but close to the limit....
