    Don't own a Summit, but as far as i know the skid plates are the same, and the wheelie bar will work. Almost all of the parts between the two trucks are identical.
    Using while stupid may cause serious injury.

    I would think so since they pretty much share all the same parts

    All the aluminim parts on my summit including the skid plates are designed for the e-revo and all work great for the summit

    Yes it works great.The best part is you can remove the wheelie bar with a push of a locking tab after you have installed the mount.I remove for crawling and push it back in for bashing,saves the body and exo.

    Yeah, e-revo wheelie bar will bolt right on. Unless, of course, you have rpm bumper mounts (aargh, why can't they make the better bumper mounts to the same specs?). RPM bumper mounts will not allow for the mounting of the wheelie bar unless you do some interesting modifications.

    Look closely at the pictures. What do you notice is different? Look between the holes for the screws on both mounts. On the stock bumper mount, it is a uniform oval all the way around. On the rpm one, on one side there is another bend inward. The wheelie bar mounts onto the flat section of the stock mount but annoyingly is curved on the rpm one. With some modification it probably can work, but that glass-filled whatever it is rpm stuff doesn't like to change its state or shape very much. Or at least that's what I've found. I tried modding mine to fit and it didn't turn out well. Doesn't really matter though because I am going to get an HPI savage wheelie bar sometime and see if I can custom mount it onto my summit. I like the savage wheelie bar more than the traxxas one.
