i dont think ill have the locking servos plugged in. so that will keep alot of stress off the diffs. im not sure yet, aluminum cups are here i will put them in when i get my parts, im not too worried about breaking stuff, and there will be vids.

put alot softer springs on the summit since ill begoin at this from a crawler angle with the sensativity of the diffs as they are, and it really made the suspension more responsive and more of a crawler feel, cant wait to take this out and run it.

Man, that thing is a beast with those tires on it. For some reason I was picturing those tires bigger than that. It's been a while since I have seen a summit in person. They must be huge. 8)

no in the summit servos run in reverse of eachother, so one is pulling and one is pushing.
