The traxxas summit I have is wearing slowly. I got it in 2008 when it first premered. One of my problems is how it kills batteries.It seems like I buy batteries every two months. The truck is literally nonstop. It can go over any rock I have. If you turn the remote off while putting the body on, it goes to auto-pilot. It's Christine!!! Car (or in this case, truck) with it's own mind. The throttle turned backward on mine. So reverse is forward and forward is reverse. Good reaction time from remote to truck. Fast for semi rock climber. 10 led lights are bright. Awesome truck. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 9.2 and maybe more. I say you should get it as fast as you possibly can.
