I have no idea what you're talking about but 2.2s on a Summit would look really really strange. Got a link to the video?

Looks like he used slayer arms, turnbuckles, pushrods and axles to make the truck more narrow and shorten the wheel base a little, and the 2.2s of course. It does look a bit more scale I guess but all in all I think it looks silly. I'd rather just buy a scaler like a Wraith or SCX10 with the Honcho body than do that to my Summit. Not sure why he called it "LT" either.

Well I now have this one on the way.







It was just to much watching all those clips on the tube.

It's second hand , but in good shape. Barly used as he got bit by the heli bug. Wich I'm done with , hehe

I also got a Steel constant velocity driveshafts wich I picked up cheap from a guy with a 1/16 summit. He had ordered the wrong parts :-)

So feel free to chip in on must have upgrades. Thanks

5352R is the heavy duty slipper, that's the one you want. I haven't broken a 2065 servo yet myself but from what I've heard it's the gears that go so you can just replace them if you like, there are meant to some metal gears from a Futaba servo that fit in place of the plastic ones but I'm not exactly sure which servo it is.

Picked up my summit last night ( and some spare part's. Clutch axels a-arms spur ). For a second hand it looks really good. Tested with standar traxxas packs, then some 2s Lipos ( 30c) and today a short saw up and don the street with 5s lipo. For now it really don't need any more speed than what I get with the 4s lipo. Will try my 65-130c 2s lipo's soon to see if the high C gives it a bitt more boost.

I can see myself and my kids have many hours of fun with this one :-)

Nope, I live in Norway, so I picked it up in Oslo, a short trip from where I live. It's the one on the pic's a few post's up in this tread. Looked good, and drove good. Really hauled on 5s lipo for a brushed car that heavy. Hoping to take it to the school yard just down the street today , It's made for the summit, with roots , dirt , sand a small skate park etc.

That's a bargain. The one I was looking at was $150. Is it the Losi Trail Trekker?
