    Make one

    Do y'all think I could make a traxxas summit from the ground up Cheeper than buying a new one?

    Not much, but you could put the items you really want in it for around the same price.

    I have priced it out... shipping kills it even if you get the parts super cheap in eBay.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    At the average Dutch LHS it would cost me 2.5 times the price of a complete car.

    If I do end up building one I will post pictures and how much I spend on it. What type of motor do you think I should get the vxl or mamba?

    I'd go with the stock motor but different ESC. Like the Mamba Max Pro or the Sidewinder 2 or 3
    Drive. Crash. Fix. Repeat.
