    New Truck Purchase

    I have the Summit and love it but am thinking of buying another 4WD truck with more speed. I am thinking about the E-Revo Brushless Edition or the E-Max Brushless Edition. Right now I am leaning to the E-Max as I like the Truck look. Do any of you favor one over the other ??? I will have to school myself on the Lithium batteries as I know NOTHING about them yet. Any suggested reading would be appreciated too.

    Everything you need to know.

    The erevo is too similar to the summit for my liking, if you are looking for something more MT-like ( the summit is just an erevo afterall, allbeit with a 2spd gearbox and some clever locking diffs ). The BL emaxx is much more customizable than the erevo I would say, so you have plenty of options for upgrades or performance enhancements- depends what kind of tastes ans styles you like..

    Why not drop a brushless system in your Summit?

    Get the brushless revo. You can raise it up, get bigger tires, and put a MT body on it and it will have the "truck look" you want and like. Also, you would have the conveniance of most parts being interchangeable on your two rides.

    If you do that, you essentially have another summit, only without the 2spd & locking diffs = whats the point. Might as well just lower the suspension, put smaller tyres & a sleaker body on the summit = instant erevo.

    It's illogical Jim...
