    Summit pulling Diamond DA40

    Hey guys, had the Summit out today and was out flying my plane. Had the Summit in my truck and decided to pull it out and see what kind of torque the 775 had. So after washing my plane, I put a rope around the front castering nose wheel and put the summit in low gear and locked both diffs. And man, that think pulled the plane like it was nothing! Love my summit!

    Yet another proof that the summit is very capable...
    How far did you pull it?
    If the summit can go through; its not deep enough

    I pull my two kids around the block all the time in a utility/garden wagon that's pretty heavy and it has no problem pulling them

    It's mostly stock, I have upgraded the steering servos, and put some trencher x's on it, it really pulls them around great and I never have had anything break yet, I have owned it since last oct. and I bought it used (almost new), it is amazing the weight these trucks can pull the neighbors think its the coolest thing watching the kids go by and an RC truck pulling them lol, I'll post some video this weekend as I will haven kids then

    Sorry all tapatalk won't let me post any videos, but here's a couple snapshots from the video of my summit pulling the kids
    I pull them around our whole block and never have heat issues, I lock the diffs and go.
