    He had the 12v motors which can run hotter. And he did what you did and put trenches on. The 14.4v will be easier on the electronics.

    RE: Traxxas Summit

    Last time i took out my summit going up hills i would hear a loud clicking noise. So i lifted the front wheels off the ground and "gave it some gas" and figured out the rear diff was clicking and wouldnt turn the rear wheels. So today i took it all apart and opened up the diff and everything is fine in there, no stripped gears, no blown bearings! Any1 know what this may be?

    RE: Traxxas Summit

    Painting a body (just waiting for paint to dry). All I have to do is back it in black, paint the windows and do the stickers and roll cage. I really hope I don't mess up the windows, I'm trying to tint them with Tamiya smoke colour. Here's a pic of how it's looking thus far.

    RE: Traxxas Summit

    For some reason the pic you posted doesn't work for me, your Summit will be fully murdered out when you get the chassis done, can't wait to see it.

    I finished off the body I was doing today, I did mess up the windows a little when I was taking the masks off but it's not too bad, pretty happy with the colour though.

    RE: Traxxas Summit

    Nice...yeah i didnt think it would work bc i just copied and pasted it. But i have everything stripped down. I figured its been almost a year so i took everything apart for cleaning and to die black! This was my first time taking it completly apart so hopefully i can get it back together! Lmao

    RE: Traxxas Summit

    A couple pics....one of my ghetto home made shroud. Other ones with the chains from the guy who made those giant tire chain combos for the snow/ice water that was shown on youtube a little bit ago. Same chains except he made them for the stock tires and there is also closed foam installed in them. Pretty neat. They grip like nobodies business. Steel shafts and upgraded slipper clutch currently being shipped to me hehe.

    I tapped into the headlight wires(spliced). Installed a light bar on top....I would upload pics but this website is sub par. Either a internal server error, or file is too large.....FINIALLY.
