I apologize if someone has already vented about this, but I'm really disappointed in the Summit.
Why, oh why did they just slap a few crawling features (and they are not all that helpful for crawling) on an E-revo then pass it off like its some big time Rock Crawler. Crawling is obviously not on Traxxas' priority list or they would have started from the ground up and built a REAL crawler that would be worthy of competition. Take a look at some of the big rock crawling websites if you want to see what a super class or 1/10th scale rock crawler should look like.
I can't hardly imagine the faces of the crawler comp guys if someone brings this "super class" rock racer with all the bells and whistles and attempts to compete with it. At least they'll get a good laugh out of it.
I don't mean any disrespect to the Traxxas company; I love traxxas products and almost ALL of my RC vehicles were made by Traxxas. I just think they took the easy way out on this one. I guess this truck would be good for little kids to play with since it has such a "cool" look to it. Like some other MT it looks like what middle schoolers draw in their notebooks: a tiny body surrounded by huge over sized tires with flames coming out the back of it. I suppose it will have its own following and I say more power to them. Just don't expect this truck to perform on the same level as other crawlers.
OK, I think I'm done. Who here agrees with me? I know some of you have to.
