    No. I don't think it will. Need a true 1/8 scale motor/esc combo such as the mamba monster 2200 kv setup.

    No no nonononononono! Shouldn't even be placed next to the summit...it would overheat like crazy!!! If you put 3 of those systems in there then it could work but I agree with tj go the MM2 with whatever motor you want

    SV3 is for much smaller and lighter cars... and the motor is about double the kv you want.

    I would suggest the MM2 with a 1800kv motor...
    --- Wait... no I wouldn't ---
    That system is not sensored.

    I suggest a sensored system with the Summit... after all, the Summit is made to be a pseudo crawler. Once you take away the smoothness in low rpm you loose the ability to crawl. Sensorless systems are no where near as smooth as sensored systems.

    XERun systems are splashproof, sensored, and have a more suitable amp rating of 150 amps. They even come with more suitable kv ranges.

    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    And the motor.

    Too high of a Kv for the Summit. I doubt you would get through 1 set of packs without overheating.
