    Stuck! What color Summit should I Buy?

    OK, its a personnel decision but even at my age its hard for me to decide what color summit I should buy.
    My 7 year old son wants Green so that is what he will get.
    Problem is I like them all, any input would be much appreciated!

    Thanks
    Joe

    Most people wont answer because they will just fight over what color they think is best, but it is about what color you think is best. Maybe think about what color you think will look best if you were to modify it. It is just a color though, and you can always buy a different colored body. You could have all of the colors if you wanted too!

    I think it would look cool with a blue on cruising along side your sons green Summit.

    I would go red. If your already getting a green one, then red would be the 2nd best color.

    Well, it seems like everybody gets green, so why not be original?

    I would say White, but they ran out of the rare material, ucantcatchum, to manufacture White.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    If I understand right you're getting yourself and your son a summit?

    If so:

    Put all available colors, other than green in a hat. Pick one out. Bingo!

    I was hopping some would say BLACK! LOL

    Hello everyone and thanks for responding.
    I really am not sure which color I will choose but I have to make a decision by tomorrow so it will be
    under the tree by the 25th.
    I was heavy into RC's 15 years ago, currently own a Losi truck and buggy but when my friend bought a
    Summit, I new I had to get one and one for my 7 year old son.

    I ordered 4 sets of lipo 8200 30c 7.4 volt batteries from Tom at SPC racing, really nice guy at a fair price.
    I look forward to sending pic's to this forum.



    PS Not sure if this is the correct way to respond, still learning to navigate
    this forum.

    I just wish that I could have gotten one of the earlier bodies. That would have made it so much easier to choose! I really like the blue though!

    Can always get a clear one later and paint it any way you like.
    Make it your own so to speak

    eh, this is it!
    My 1st choice is Black, but I will take any color as long as they have it in stock or it is not back ordered
    because any color is better then no summit, agree?

    Ultimately when I crack up the body I will replace it with a clear body and paint it camo like my 79 Bronco
    because they rule, at least in my world.

    No one will FIGHT about color... but we will poke fun and have a friendly discussion about which is best.

    If you have a green one (which is the sickest BTW), id go with either black or blue. The black would be good because at least if you needed to swap parts between them teh green will still look decent. Also, black is just sweet. But, im also a big fan of the blue. One nice thing about a summit is a clear replacement body is only like $15... so if you get tired of the color you have, you can always pick up a new body and spray it any color you like (for instance, if you want the best summit ever, you could spray it yellow...)

    Green is the best, there's no arguing there... , I'd go with the black/red if your sons already got the green.

    If you go with a red one and a green one your going to look like REALLY big fans of the christmas season for the other 11 months of the year. Its like dressing your kids in red and green... looks funny IMO.

    Should I drive a half hour for a red one?

    Or drive 3 hours for a black one?

    Or should I just wait a week for a blue one?

    Wait a week for the blue one. Or drive 3 hours for the black. You might have to wait or drive for a little while, but youll have to look at the truck for a long time. Make sure what your looking at is what you really like.
