    It's Official!

    I'm now a Summit owner! It came in the mail yesterday, and I still can't belive how big this thing is! I had a hard time taking these pictures, I was so excited about it, I couldn't hold the camera still!


    This is a picture of my Summit box on top of my dad's HPI. Ther're the same size!

    what ksb51rl said, i burnt out a micro server my first day owning it.... rooky mistake.... also you might want to add some weight to the front, that are kind of top heavy and roll backwards going up a semi steep terrain... it also has a real high center of gravity, my plan was to get some rock crusher tires and a flm chassis; then i realized why should i have to spend all this money when the summit should already be a crawler capable of going up a terrain thats not that steep at all... so i sold mine, best of luck to you

    oh, so you are saying that i am out of my my saying to add weight to the front so it wont tip back? the flm chassis with rock crusher tires so it has a lower center of gravity, yet the same ground clearence? i guess im confused...

    If you want to argue or trash the Summit, feel free to PM me. Let's not clutter up the thread.

    wasnt trash talking, to dumb it down a bit, it basicly just did not suit my interests, said nearly the same thing to him

    OT, what upgrades do you plan on doing? i think it would be cool to add the roof light bar, a member even has one for sale on the mp

    Thanks guys, I'm REALLY excited to open my Summit come Christmas time! I sure hope my Summit is more capable in snow, trying to use my Slash 2wd in the snow is just hopless!
