Well, after stalking the Summit fourms for a couple months, I'm thinking about getting one. First I'll list the things I like about it, then what I don't like about it.
Go anywhere ablitys.
Revo (Or Slayer in my case) drive line.
Cool shock setup.
I love the green body and wheels.
DeWalt mod will fit.
LED's on front bumper.
Price, $600 with tax!
Slop in the transmission.
The tires don't like pavment very much.
Not alot of upgrades.
The tires can tear on sharp objects.
I know I can buy it used, but I'd rather spend the extra $$$ to get it brand new. I really don't like electric, (Like I didn't make that obvious, LOL.) because to really enjoy electric power to need to get a good brushless system and some lipos. I know the Summit doesn't need brushless to be fun, I'm just talking electric in general. I know you can get the DeWalt, but I'll still need lipos. I just really hate having to buy and recharger batterys in order to run it. If I get a Summit, I'll plan on getting the DeWalt for it. It will take me awhile to save up $600 bucks to get it, so I'll have plenty of time to think about this. What are some things you guys think I need/should get/add to my Summit if I get one? Any problem areas or pitfalls I should watch out for? Feel free to tell me any bad things about the Summit! What are the best upgrades I can get for the Summit? What is the best things I can do to make it last the longest? Sorry for asking so many questions, but I really just want to make sure spending the $600 is worth it. Thanks! -Wolfslash16
