    HOT RACING now has aluminum diff cups for summits

    After 6 plus years the summit is now the "hot" ticket. Hot Racing now makes steel summit axles and aluminum summit specific diff cups


    $38 bucks on their web site but $32 if purchased through eBay

    Wow. I didn't see that coming! I bet it's because how many people are lining up to get the new LEM parts.

    From what I read, their aluminum products are generally pretty good. A few have broken the pins in their axles, but that was on the 16ths which have really small pins to begin with.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I'm new to the Summit community, and my Summit is totally stock, so how will this help me, or is the stock parts just weak and have a tendency to break? I know if you are upgrading the motor to brushless...its a good idea to do this mod, but for a stock Summit, is this necessary?

    I know GH is good with 1/16 parts, but as far as 1/10 parts, i didn't have much luck. Aluminium A-arm i bought for my truck did not fit, and sometimes, holes are bigger than rhey are supposed to be. But, their material is very good! To finish my thought, i would prefer to go with LEM products, reviews are very good!

    That is crazy expensive. The diff cup isn't bad but the axles are outrageous.

    I think that is a reasonable price. You have to think that they are probably 8 pieces to each axle that they have to manufacture then assemble not counting the pins and screws, also heat treat the steel and anodize the aluminum collars. Just my thoughts on it.

    i really hope one day we can buy aluminum bulkheads for our summits and not integy lol , that would be awesome as it seems one of the common parts to break , i swear in the last year ive broken 3 front bulkheads and 2 rear and that's with chassis braces

    , maybe a bulkhead that actually holds the diff in place instead of just bouncing around inside wearing bearings faster and wearing down the plastic diff housing , i actually had a diff housing crack where the input gear goes in , ended up wrecking 3 new ring gears before i realized

    Hmmm I wonder how close are the summit and erevo bulkheads? Is it possible to dremel one side of an erevo aluminum bulk to fit a summit diff? That's what the erevo guys are doing to fit the bigger/stronger Losi diffs into the erevo plastic bulks.

    Fit and finish is excellent...all gears are hardened steel. Plastic diff cup spreads and the spiders jump due to the emense torque of the 2000kv tekin..which eventually cracks the cup. This hasn't missed a beat...

    Interesting tidbit :Beware while installing the GPM hardened gear set, ensure you remove one of the two gaskets they put on the output shafts as you can see in this photo:


    Otherwise the gear mesh will be off and you will get this..

    lets just say it would be hard to find something better.......I like to jump and have broken a few servos because of the plastic servo guard breaking on impact, I installed 2 hot racing alloy servo gaurds and ive slammed hard on them and only scratches,
    in my opinion other then Traxxas alloy parts they are the best there is.

    Hot racing shaft

    THESE ARE FROM MEMBER CHAINSAW10 OFF OF THE Ultimaterc forum

    "I'm not gonna have the chance to install them until tonight. But they look strong and solid....they are very heavy. I really like the blue pin retainers....the stock pins quickly get sloppy and stick out of the eyelets on the sides a bit. That always bugged me. The blue retainers are tough to get off though, very tight fit....but that's probably good so they don't come loose while running. " -Chainsaw10


    "The pins themselves though are a hair thinner than the stock ones...but I'm not to concerned about that....since they are shorter there is less leverage/stress on them while driving." -Chainsaw10

    racing f4ever- you asked if they are necessary, simple answer no. I have mm2 brushless system and my half shaft axles and diffs never break and i drive everyday. The only part you should prolly upgrade on your summit if u go brushless is the center driveshaft. Other then that the summit is very durable. Whats nice about those steel shafts is they look good and wont wear out like the plastic ones can after a while.
