    is it brushed or brushless? If brushed look at motor and see if the white fan blade looking thingys inside are still white. If they are not motor is on its last leg. Also see if he will let you run it. If the motor smokes at all it is no good. A smoking motor is a bad motor. Other than that i would maybe turn each wheel independantly to see if the diffs are still smooth. If they are stiff or click that means time for a rebuild. THats about all you will have to do.

    not true my motor fan turned black the seconed run for me
    i would be more conserned about the lenght of the brushes inside and the magnet's
    as well if you can check the axile carier bearings to see if they are grity or not

    The summit came stock with the brushed titan 775, so if it's a brushless setup it's been changed. you can always upgrade to a 2.4 rx and tx later if you want or need too. Batteries...lipo, do a search there is a million threads on it but you'll want 2 x 2s with 5000mah rating or higher
