    It's a crawler, hence designed to be slower

    Agree with this, but I have a Hobbywing AXE 550 3300kv in mine, with a two speed transmission and a 14T pinion.

    But it can also be a lot of fun driving in a non-crawler fashion.

    I agree you might want to look for a different car If you are looking for fast, or you just mean fast for crawling or bashing but not like slash fast

    True and I'm all for change and experimenting.
    But these things have already evolved into slow crawlers, its backwards engineering to make them super fast.
    Plus they aren't the most stable of things at speed due to the narrow wheel track.
    Each to their own I suppose

    In my opinion, the Traxxas Summit is a well better all around vehicle capable of high speed and not great, but good crawling. The Summit is surprisingly very versatile.

    It's not that easy to point out which one is the Summit
    (the Body on the Summit has been the "Pro-Line Reader’s Rides Winner")
    (I am not sure, but is my memory don't fool me around, the fastest Summit plays in the 80mph range)
