    Traxxas Summit

    I am on the break of buying a Summit, or at least talking to my Dad about letting me buy one. I figured that since I have the type of terrain the Summit likes, I would have fun with it. I am having a battle in my head though on if I should spend the money on it. I want to so bad though!!! What do you guys think I should do? Do you think if I buy it I will be happy???????????

    No one I know whos bought a summit has been disappointed with its performance. Its not cheap, but its a pretty good investment. They hold their value pretty well.

    I have a Slash 2wd VXL now and I have got the green to buy it from my dad. I have a river bed at my Grandparents House and I also have a rocky hill at my other Grandparents House. Should I get it? Also, how long does UPS ground take if shipping from Stormer Hobbies?

    I want it to be here by next Wednesday, but I don't want to pay an extra $70 for shipping.

    Just placed an order for the Traxxas Summit. Nothing else I can do now but wait for it to get here and hope it is what everyone says it is. And, if I didn't like it for some reason, the resale price is awesome on them. I will make sure to make a new thread again and post pics of me opening it. I will also make sure to mount my new GoPro on it too!!!

    You made a good choice man. My summit is the 2nd best RC purchase I ever made next to my trusty stampede. The things a summit can do often blows my mind. If you run it the way its meant to be run, youll love it and youll be impressed with it every time your out. Get some good 8000mah 2S lipos and you can run for nearly 2 hours straight.

    With the batteries that come with it, I will have a total of 4 stock NiMH Batteries that come with it. Instead of a Longboard for my B-Day I could probably get some Lipo Bats and a Charger too.
