    I would no run the 16v, maybe 14v at the most, but i am however running the 12v, the point to the Dewalt motor is to over volt it so it performs at peak performance with out having to be wound out. I love my 12v had it on now for a long time and no problems at all.

    16v??? Never heard of a 16v. Typical is 12v, 14.4v, and 18v. 12v is the most powerful, but can run hot. 14.4v is a nice choice for power and better temps. 18v is generally not used as it is a bit slow.

    the 12v will accept the 5mm pinion just have to make a small flat spot on the shaft. oh and that motor gets hot, I run a Mamba fan but.. u do what works for you.

    2s lipo 65s and 18p and my gps still was at 26mph! I didnt hav stock tires but the trencher. Gets kinda warm so 30 would be just for a show off run and not for everyday use. Stick with under 25mph and the summit will like u with a dewalt 14.4 and run great.

    You put a 2650 or 2200kv mamba monster motor on it with 4s lipo It will do wheelie stands, use 18pinion and 58 spur.

    Here is a video of my e-revo, (high gear in the summit) with 4s lipo and 2200kv system


    You may break summit axles tho, I did I prefer e-revo axles, which can be swapped in freely.

    Dewalt (the much cheaper option) not as fast, but blows away stock in a Summit (775)
    Here is one I put a DeWalt 14.4 motor in, this is also running stock batts. It would be faster on 4s lipo.

    Got a question for all the Dewalt guys out there. Ok anyone know the measurements on the brushes alone. I have been looking even called tech support at places that sales them and left messages. but i think they might be 25" x .313" x .53".. but im not sure.. any info would be great.. Thanks I know i can buy these off ebay but if i can match up the sizes i might be able to get them for less than 2 dollars a pair. Mine are toast BTW..

    Just to be clear i am not looking for the brush housing, just the brush measurment itself.
