    Summit or revo?

    Wanting a 1/16 scale to basically jump and flip. Revo or summit for that?

    Looking at stock setups only.

    I have both the mini summit vxl and revo vxl. If your wanting to jump and bash real hard I would go with a revo. The summit seems to be very
    Fragile. I put rpm arms and carriiers on mu revo and now it doesn't brake no matter how hard I wreck/flip. The summit is way better in grass and rough terrain though.

    I did post on your other thread...

    I am in no way trying to offend or provoke you...
    I understand that you probably didn't realize the rule existed. Not many really take the time to read the rules before they start posting... usually the rules are read after one has already been broken. lol

    Definitely the revo IMO, the summit does have potential, but the revo is very awesome right out of the box.



    This is a video that I have of both the Summit and the Revo bashing around. I haven't driven the Summit but one time, and assuming the way my friend describes it, it's very tippy and less versatile as compared to the more perky Revo.

    Ah okay, well. Either one you go with, you're in good hands. But I'd go with the Revo which is is more able to do different things.
