    New Event

    With the introduction of the dual transmition and lockers , I can see the event of "Truck pulling" coming into light. Someone on another thread called this a "Brawler" (Basher + Crawler) Come to think about it, that wouldn't be a bad classification of this truck.

    I think it could easily be done. All you would have to do is build a progressive weight pulling sled to scale and put some type of hitch on the back of the truck

    RC Sled Pulls?



    Not my idea of fun with the Summit. I like the Endurocross idea. A little bit of track, mud, rocks, logs, etc. Sounds like a fun race to me.

    This is already a very common sport. People use both nitro's and electrics. As a rule though you aren't allowed 2 speed transmissions for these events unfortunatily

    The Slash started its own stock class, maybe there would be an event in the truck pull just for Summits.

    If they did i don't think it would be very competative purely for the fact you can't do a great deal more other than change the tyres and motors/speed control and batterys for it to pull more.
