RC Overload - Mini Monster Truck Upgrades Traxxas 1/16 Summit



This Traxxas 1/16 Summit has certainly come along way! It originally started out as a 1/16 E-Revo. But over the past several years, I have continuously changed the way it looked or upgraded different parts on it.

Most recently I decided to try something different out on it. By stretching a set of Proline Racing 1.9 Super Swamper tires on to a set of Proline Racing 2.2 Bead lock rims. The overall end result it crazy awesome looking! :)

Next I added a some more details to the truck with a few "scale Sized" stickers on the body and a "Scale" chain set up. hooked up on the front bumper.

Lastly I installed a Savox Waterproof metal gear steering servo since the stock one finally craped out on me after several years of abuse! This servo puts out 69.4 oz of torque at 0.11 sec of speed.
This will do for now with turning those big tires!
