    What generation of Summit?

    Sounds like an OK deal to me...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Around me you prob could have sold that stuff on craigslist and then bought a summit and some lipos. Overall i would say its an ok trade. Afterall. You got a summit. The king of monster trucks that rules all

    You mean traded with a new Summit? Or the Summit is new to you?! : (
    Anyways if you see on the ESC like this it is a second Gen. With Lipo cut-off

    its a clean body no crazy graphics on it. looks just like the one in the picture here. and he said it was ran one time. came with box reciever with big antenna and all paper work still sealed but.... it has the new controller on the box and the one i got is the older one big like i said big antenna. hooked it up today and took it for a spin around the living room. its great everything works fine. it jolts a little. sometimes and likes to go in reverse and forward for a split second. i adjusted the controller but. it dont seem to be a problem. waiting for my lipo alarms to get here. ill post pics soon. thanks for the help. O AND I WILL BE MOUTING MY NIKON AW100 TO IT THIS WEEK FOR 1080P AND MAYBE A LITTLE 33 FEET UNDER WATER!!! LOL

    You got the 1st Gen. Summit, with the old antenna, what kind of controller it have? surely it was from a project or something taken for parts, are those plastic undercarriage had no scratches?

    Yes with the big silver (am) antennae thats an original model. But the good thing is there were never any serious changes in the entire life time of the summit. Yes its been updated with 2.4ghz and lipo readiness but basically EVERYTHING else is still the same. If you really want to keep up ith the Joneses than a 2.4ghz radio can be had for $55 and almost everyone switches out the esc and motor for brushless anyway.

    Go have fun.

    IMHO since you have a 2.4ghz transmitter, track down the antenna going in the receiver box, then cut the antenna tube down to 2inches. To have that neat body looking sumho.

    this guy bought out a hobby shop and i went to his place to pick up the summit he must have had 5 more in almost perfect condition. and 80-90 more cars and parts also sold me a small brand new lipo for 15 bucks 3s!!!! no scratches at all on the summit. maybe 3 screws on the car are rusty one on the body one near the antenna but seems perfect also the esc it the one that doesnt have low voltage detection. but it seems like a bad a truck! U CAN MOVE FURNITURE WITH THIS THING!!!

    If I'm reading this right, you're basically in this Summit for $182. I would say you didn't get hurt.

    At this point in my life I'm long 6 trucks........and 4 of them are getting dusty sitting on the shelf. I would much rather have one truck that I love than a handful that I dont use. I would sell my erbe in a heartbeat if I knew I wouldnt take a loss on it like I know I will.
