I'm debating on picking one of these up for fun. I ran a "Is It Worth It" thread on the full size Summit forum and the responses I got were fantastic. Everyone was pretty much spot on and I couldn't be happier with buying a Summit. I love it so much that a mini Summit seems like fun. I don't expect it to be anything close to the 1/10 Summit in capability. I just want to know if the fun factor is worth investing in another money pit . I only say money pit because it seems there are Thousands of upgrades available at pretty reasonable prices. So it would be like a project, jazz it up, swap out bodies and wheels kind of truck. Something I could run indoors (maybe) but mostly back yard or the local beach/park. Good clearance with big tires.
I just want to try and prevent buying a truck / car that will sit or get sold. I just sold my 1/16 rally. Was rocket fast! But even on the street, just a mess to handle and the smallest pebble, twig or dip and its no fun. I know it's the same chassis; but factoring wheels cost, body and shock or springs... Wasn't worth it.
Is this a FUN, FAST?, Reliable, easy to work on ; back yard basher?
Currently own a Summit 1/10. Pede 4x4 VXL, Pede 2x4 and Slash 2x4. The Pedes the only brushless I own. But I have batteries, lipos, good chargers and all.
