I've been away from RC for about 10 years and I bought a 1/16 Summit 2 weeks ago. I've been having a blast! I get so disheartened though when the little guy just can't quite make it up a hill or through a difficult section of rocks/loose dirt. I find myself wishing I could remote lock the diffs. I really wish I had went for the bigger Summit! I had thoughts of getting a TRX-4, but I don't really have an interest in true rock crawling...I just want the ability to power up a hill or make it through tough sections without having to blast up the hill as fast as possible or give the thing a little kick to help it through the rough stuff.

I'm thinking of either getting a Stampede VXL 4x4 (I just feel a Stampede would be even more fun than an Mini Summit for bashing) and a TRX-4 or JUST getting the Big Summit....any thoughts!? I over analyze everything, so just looking for some opinions.
