Traxxas Summit is one very special car.

 

This is the Car i Love maybe most of them all.

 

There is no words for this beast.

 

This is a Monster,  and Crawler, also fun decent speed basher.

Most insane is that this Summit does all of these 3 different things very well.

 

This is actually the only car that i dont know where it belongs.

 

All i know is that YOU MUST HAVE ONE.

This is the best RC Car ever made i believe.

You can do ALOT with this

It’s definitely not a speed basher 😂

 

I would say in low gear with locked diff its a crawler and in high gear with open diffs it’s a monster truck 

 

Anyway fitted the Traxxas Centre shafts

Also the servo I’m going to use arrived today from Amain’s, more on that later 👍

Also just ordered a pair of lipos, bargain at £28

I’ve had a pair of Black Magic lipos hanging about that I was going to use, but they have puffed slightly and flex the battery compartments, so I’m going to shoot them instead 🤣🤣🤣

No one has a clue where to post them, I did a search and they are posted in at least 3 different sub forums 😂😂😂

 

Im staying brushed for now, but I won’t rule out going brushless in the future 👍

This afternoon’s little project…

 

I picked up a cheapo (£8) alloy steering set up, the plan is to only use the dual arm to get rid of the flexible stock part, also I’ve always thought that metal on metal contact is never a good recipe for a consistently working servo saver. Plus the stock front part is pretty beefy and doesn’t really need replacing imo….

I’ll give it a coat of paint before fitting 👍

That’s the steering back together, I’ve also made up a beefier drag link out of some SSD rod ends I had, they use a 4mm screw thread instead of the stock 3mm, I’ll look to made another with metal rod ends when I find something suitable..

 

I have also bolted through the chassis for one set of the servo mount screws to make the fixing of the servo even more substantial

 And ive got one of these servo arms on order to finish up the steering upgrades
