You might have to play with the gearing a bit if you only want an extra 10mph out of a BL setup. Here's a few options.

and it's waterproof. It can only be run on 4S though.

Here's a video of that setup in action.

Why would you have to buy more lipos? You have 2 x 2S already don't you? What I meant by only running on 4S is that it can't be run on 6S like other BL setups, a Summit on 6S would be crazy, backflips anyone?

Nice Jdog, that Gopro case could be a little more dirtier and scuffed up though, when do you plan on doing some filming? Also how have you got it fastened in there and what's that little clippy clip thing on the roof rack?

He made a mount out of some thick plastic from a pallet and small door hinges and the clip thing is a led light so he can try and drive at night.  That poor truck ill wash it for u after we go out next time.

Wow this thread got its first spam post, thanks Giant Scale Gasser.

Thanks for the extra pics JDog, I was wondering what you had the GoPro sitting on and how it was attached.

Nice video as always sollie.

Now this talk of who has a better Summit between JDog and Beast. In my eyes and as a casual fisherman I see it like catching a Barramundi in either saltwater or fresh, you see both Barras will put up a good fight, both of them with breach the water, jumping high enough to give you an idea of the monster you are fighting beneath the surface and both of them will leave you with a big smile and a great photo op if you manage to get them into the boat, but unfortunately the similarities stop there. While the saltwater Barramundi is great eating giving you something to take home and enjoy (kinda like JDog's Gopro footage) the freshwater Barramundi should be thrown back due to it's lack of flavor (like Beast's lack of footage). So you see guys both Summits do what they should do in the field but only one gives you something to take home and enjoy.
