    can you help me out????????

    im looking to get another rc, but i dont know what to get. im going to be selling my all aluminum flm/strc/integy/traxxas vxl stampede and my ejato roller and a few other things (need to clean out my stuff). Anyway, ive been looking at the summit or the erevo. i have been aiming toward the summit beacase of the remote locking diffs and the waterproof electronics and the massive groung clearence. i dont plan on going brushless i just want an all around basher.

    i also have another question, i have two 7 cell flat packs (4700 nimh from maxamps) will they work in the summit battery compartments?

    could you please give me some pros and cons of the summit?

    thanks in advance

    remember the e-revo is waterproof too.
    the summit is basicly an e-revo just changed aroung a bit, if you want speed get e-revo, get the summit if you want to conquer anything.
    i am the most modest man, thats why im better

    summit is good for you, with tons of logs, the batteries also if they do not have long enough wires just lenghten them more.

    Yes the 7 cell flat packs will fit into the battery compartment of the Summit and the Revo.

    Crawling??? I love my Summit and it "crawls" great for what I want. But compaired to some of the true scale crawlers out there - there is no challange. But Summit is the best middle of the road. It doesn't have the speed of the ERevo - but the ERevo cannot "crawl" like the Summit. It doesn't "crawl" like Axial or Venom - but they cannot go fast. Again I love my summit and my E-Slayer project with take care of my all out need for speed.

    I would order a couple spare steering servos - just incase yours go out and you need to wait for Traxxas to replace one.
