I dont see why not. You will have to do alot of work and get a summit rx and tx.

I am running one in the rear. you have to run summit bulkheads, but everything else pretty much dropped in for me. Also, you cant run sway bars with the locking diffs, but you wouldn't want to anyways if your making a crawler. I did it cause the track I race at is real dusty so its nice to be able to lock it at the flick of a switch for more traction. I had the shift servo mounted between the wing stays.

Shims for the diff before you drop it in. Diff Oil of your choice.

If you are planning on locking the diff from the Tx, you will need a micro servo, as well as a linkage between servo and diff.

You will also need to get the Traxxas TQ Link 2.4 GHz Tx for the Summit. I'm sure there are aftermarket Tx setups that will let you run it from the Tx, but the Traxxas TQ is pretty cheap if you don't already have it covered.

Don't lock it at speed, unless you enjoy rebuilding diffs a lot.

I thought this was going to be a thread about a 1/5 Revo or something...

And I thought your post would tell him to sell the Revo and get the LST2.
