    There one in the marketplace right now for $285. It doesn't get much cheaper than that as far as Summits go if you are looking to get in one for as little $ as possible. I was searching for a while too and just scored one on eBay with the Mamba Monster for $380. It was just what I was looking for.

    Just like with everything, you will get what you pay for...unless you can can stumble upon a crazy Craigslist or eBay deal. In that case, you just have to keep looking actively until you find what you want, but be prepared for it to take a while.

    I ordered a brand new one with lipos from my LHS and the next day a buddy sold me his for 150 bucks. It came with about that much in new parts still in the bags, roof light kit, and cooling fan

    You'll have to lurk on Ebay, Craigslist, and the For Sale section of forums ready to paypal somebody the money. Best of luck. I Paid $670 at my local hobby shop for a new one, I'm poor and I stopped thinking about how I overpayed a long time ago. I guess I'm too busy stressing, waiting for payday to come so buy my repair parts. lost an axle pin today crawling a fishing trail around the lake today.

    Be patient. A friend of mine is very interested in a summit. He's been window shopping CL, and we have found several nice rtr summits with no issues, some with extras, for around 300$. They're out there

    For 3$ you can load a wal mart debit card for using paypal. You do not need to link a bank account until you have spent $10,000...
    You should be good for years.

    EDIT: Also, at my local convenience stores, there are loadable paypal cards, which is even easier than using a debit card.
