Okay, which one of these do I want? Money is an object, so I am leaning towards the Summit right now for my son. I have a 1/16 E-revo and I really like it, but I want to get my son a truck that does better in taller grass and over rougher terrain. It would be nice to broaden the range of acceptable terrain to drive the truck in. How does the mini Summit do in grass and rough stuff?
My buddy's son has a 2wd Brushed Stampede and it was mowing over the rough stuff and grass a lot better than my MERV. I had originally wanted the Summit since some stuff is interchangeable with my MERV and it is cheaper. I also figured that it would do better in the rough stuff and grass than the MERV since is comes with bigger tires. However, after seeing what the 2wd brushed Stampede can do, I am thinking that the 4wd brushless Stampede would be unstoppable. His son was beating the crap out of that thing on the pavement getting it to do 5ft high cartwheels since he kept turning too sharp at top speed and it survived it all.
