    Top Speed?

    I tried searching for the answer, but the search function seems stuck.

    On a new stock Summit, stock batteries, what is the (approximate, I'm sure there's variances) top speed? Has anyone really measured it with a radar gun or anything? People are always asking me "how fast does that thing move?" and I want to give them an answer other than "about 70"...

    Here is a thread I started some time ago that lists top speeds for my stock Summit. The batteries used however were not stock, so I hope you still can find the info helpful.

    The summit isn't built for speed, it's a trail-truck & quasi-crawler. If you want a truck for going fast, the BL Erevo is the one to get; adding a BL system to the summit just makes it hard to drive & prone to roll-overs and breakages....
    Keeping the Mods busy is my specialty...

    Oh I know, I bought it for it's dual personality (actually I bought 2) and I love it. It seems so dang fast, but I guess there are much faster ones. How in the world do people contol them at much higher speeds? Wow.
    Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll tape my handheld GPS to mine sometime and record the top speed...
