It seems I'm still here for now but that could change at any minute due to me not being liked by the powers that be, there is a lot more to it than that but it mainly boils down to me taking offence at being called a "Traxxas fanboy" and an "obsessive compulsive liar" outside of this thread and a bunch of abusive PMs I got from another member, and the fact that the mods didn't have a problem with any of it. The deleted posts was a mistake that I regret doing but at the time of doing it I wanted out of here and I wanted to take my info with me, I know how stupid that sounds and it was just that, me being stupid. After I calmed down I tried to get the posts reanimated but my request fell on deaf ears and I am unable to edit them myself.

My nameis Mayberry Kid, and I'ma Summit Fanboy

Itoo noticed the deletedposts and just decided tooverlook it because, I'm such a Summit Fanboy!!

Seriously, there's a lot ofgood information here andsome friendships Imight add.

We're kinda between "seasons" here in NC, I'm really looking forward to hopefullygetting some real snow this year. I've seen threads elsewhere about making chains, so that's probably my next cheap project.

I know, I have been meaning to get out with the Summit to make another video for a while now, I've just been super busy lately. I'll try to get out next week. One of my videos ended up in the related video section on one of MEDiC's videos and I got like a thousand views in less than a week, was pretty happy about that.

Ok so I'm a new owner of a summit. I've been in RC for about 8 months now and own a trex 600 EFL pro, addiction 3d plane, and now a summit. I'd have to say this summit is a beast.

ive read most of this thread and would like to get a " initial parts upgrade" list. In terms of what's the first and foremost upgrades/replacement parts I should order right now. Thanks in advance for the inputs.

also, my youtube channel is xseeker23. I have most my heli/plane flying on there and soon summit riding.

Congrats on the summit! I really like my steel center drive shafts. Gotta get a pair of dirty danglers! I would buy a 2065 servo or 2, ive gone thru like 8 of them but others have no probs so idk. The stock steering servos are fine with stock tires but i love my hitec servos.

lol The link takes me to my videos as well, here's a link to Beast's channel if you want to check it out. http://www.youtube.com/user/nsumner98

In terms of upgrades, check out HPP hubs. The stock hubs are ok but after a while they wear out and you get some wheel wobble, HPP hubs are much better although they are a bit pricey.
