    Lol reverse is a little touchy, this is my first electric rc and I'm still getting the hang of the throttle feel. Love the summit though, I think I will never be able to part with it.

    Haha, wouldn't have expected it to be able to crawl up there like that! The end is hilarious! I don't miss that - using my MMP I've programmed reverse to 30% so that can't happen anymore.

    I would love to upgrade to mmp I just really like my waterproof stuff... About how fast is yours and does it still crawl well being sensored?
    Its a Summit thing, you wouldn't understand.

    It can certainly still crawl using my sensored setup. Sensored is the way to go. Much more efficient, much more customizable. With the MMP, it goes slow just as well as the stock brushed motor does, but it also goes much faster when using my brushless motor. There is sensored, and sensorless... you don't want sensorless brushless for crawling. Also I program things like power curve, brake amount (for instance, don't roll backwards when I let go of the throttle) and if I want, I can make it EASE in to acceleration so that no matter what, it never jars the system. It's great, and much more affordable than the other brands.

    Thats sweet. I saw it get the front wheels up and rest on the rear bumper and I thought "ive seen that before, funs over" then all of a sudden those grippy canyons just pulled it on up. Sweet man.

    The tires are trencher x on the desperado wheels. I just took my stock green beadlocks, drilled holes, and screwed them down. They're the best all purpose tire IMO.
