    I overpowered my Summit and details in this video.



    This brushless system is so efficient and fast that using the two NIMH batteries that powered the brushed 775 motor, my Summit can attain 30 - 35mph which is a huge improvement over the 20mph it used to get.

    The erevo model MODEL 56036-4 sported two brushed motors and apparently the previous owner of my Summit installed this. The part number is 5690 and can be seen in the -> E-Revo (56036-4) Transmission Assembly Exploded View
