    Traxxaholic

    Hi, my name is Monsoon. And I'm a Traxxaholic.

    Started 7 weeks ago, I purchased a new Revo 3.3 to replace my 5 year old Revo 2.5. A week later, bought a Slash 4x4 VXL and a Stampede 4x4 VXL. 10 Days later I bought a E-Revo 1/16 VXL. A week after that, I bought a Slash Ultimate 4x4 VXL. Sold the Revo 3.3, because I was enjoying the electrics too much.

    And finally today, I purchased a Summit. Do I have a problem or what...? Thought I would share while my batteries are charging for maiden drive.

    Tomorrow my buddy and I are taking the Slash's to the track for our first race.

    Show me the serenity......

    I'd do the same thing... if I had the money.

    Join the club. A week before Christmas I bought a Rustler VXL and a Revo 3.3. Sold the 3.3 now I have The Rustler VXL, 2 Slash Ultimates, 2 Slash VXL's, a ERBE, and a Spartan. I'm converting 1 Ultimate and 1 2wd Slash into Backslash's but I haven't got around to it yet. I still want a Stampede 4x4 and a Summit.

    I am Max, I bought my Summit 1:10 on Christmas and almost bought a ERBE this week but found out that I have no place to go with while the Summit can always join me. Thinking about a Summit VXL just for fun. I just love the way it looks and fells.

    Yea I caught that "Traxxas disease" about 5 years ago. Started with the revo 3.3 and ended up with the summit. Along the way there were big block upgrades, erevos, emaxxes and stampedes - And Im still scratching. Actually itching for a slash - but the few race tracks in my city are 45min away and hardly ever open.

    These are classic stories. We drove the Summit last night. What an amazing crawler. It was well after dark when the batteries were fully charged. The lights are awesome, and we were going over everything. What a blast. My 9 year old woke up this morning and first thing he asked was to go play with it.

    This is one hobby that we totally enjoy together. Today is 1st race day for us. So we're getting the batteries charged and everything ready. We are both looking forward to it. And of course I got my neighbor hooked about a month ago. So he's coming too.

    The Summit is amazing and really looking forward taking it out in the desert.
