    Couple summit questions

    Just wondering if this thing can basically go anywhere? Are there any problems with it? Because this could be my waterproof truck and I could put like an rerun system in my maxx

    How does it handle and is it very good box stock for going anywhere?

    Hi,It's a great truck,slightly slow if you're used to the maxx,but it's now my truck of choice(I have a maxx) It's tougher,40 ft tumble down a vetical quarry face,resulted in a creased shell .It does go virtually anywhere,the locking diffs are a godsend.Overall a great truck

    Mustang63,
    You certainly do a lot of research on vehicles you would like to buy. It's always nice to see some one do the amount of leg work you do. How many R/C vehicles have you added to your elite collection of the best money can buy? You had all of us worried when you were seriously considering buying a flux instead of an E-Revo. BTW, how did that dramatic battle for your allegiance to Traxxas turn out? I wasn't able to keep up.

    It's not a good handling truck at speed as it's designed as a unstoppable extreme terrain monster.Check this thread everything you need to know to help you decide if it's the truck for you.You can have mine when you pry it from my dead cold fingers....Even then i wish you luckThat should give you a idea how much i li....No love this truck

    Well I just decided that I don't really care what truck I get because they are both great trucks

    Okay, if you are thinking that it might not be as good as another truck, think again! The summit is amazing! Half the fun of the truck is finding places it won't go. And the waterproof feature is great. I just got done doing some snow driving and it is a blast, literally. And yes, the summit is not 100% perfect. I have had no "problems" with mine however. Only little things that I feel could use some improvemt. Not problems though. If you try to wheigh out the drawbacks vs. the success' of the summit, you will find yourself with a horribly one-sided list... in favor of the good.
    Why can't other people share my opinions?
