    Exclamation Summit

    I am gonna get the Summit but I have a few questions. Should I go bl? I have heard both ways. How are the stock tires? Is it a good rock lumber?

    Lol. I am looking forward to learning. Do I need to go brushless if I go LiPo? I know it has the colossus 775 brushed.

Although you lose the 100% brushless waterproof guarantee, you can get massive torque and speed with a Castle Creations 2200kv motor geared really low. However, all in all, I personally think you are too young and inexperienced to be purchasing such a RC vehicle. I recommend you go back to YouTube and be content with watching others run their Summits until you are old enough to safely operate one yourself. This vehicle is very different from the $25 New Bright indoor car at Target. Maybe your daddy can get something similar and maybe he will let you drive it a little if you are supervised. Good luck and be patient.
    That was super helpful.Really doesn't matter to me if he has one or not,he asked a question
    I answered it,That is what this forum is for last time I checked.

    You dont have to go brushless to run lipos. I ran mine stock of 4s and it was a great truck like that. Plenty of power for crawling. And was decently fast as well. But i burned up my stock motor doing dounuts on a slick concrete floor. Thats when i decided to go brushless. Just be prepared to break alot of drivetrain parts going brushless. At least until you learn to respect the throttle. Good luck man. Hope you enjoy your summit as much as i do mine!
    If it still moves, it aint broke enough!
