So one of the Summit trucks I bought is for my 6 year old daughter.
And the Summit has a 50% training mode, and low range, should be nice and slow, right?
Even the low range 50% mode scares the heck out of most kids, and they can easily ram it into something and break stuff.
So anyone who wants to do super slow training mode:
Take two thick rubber bands. Wrap one around the antenna, down under behind the trigger, and back up to the antenna. You can now limit how far she can pull the trigger, and it covers the red range switch, keeping it in low range.
Take the other one and wrap one end around the base of the diff switch, under and in front of the trigger, and back up to the antenna. Now she can't run herself over in reverse. Not that I speak from experience or anything...
An amazing truck to learn on, if it's slowed down enough. The cheezy ones at Target and such never had good control and the ability to go anywhere. She's really learning how to drive and crawl, and I'm a proud papa...
Many of you are too young to remember the old RC cars from the 80's. Mine was a "Mountain Man" Chevy Blazer with a switch on top for 2WD or low range 4WD. Took 6 c batteries, I think. Man, I took that thing EVERYWHERE. Anyone old enough to remember those?
