    Revo, hands down.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Yep ^^^^... Summit has a higher COG,taller tires, and is geared lower.

    Yes, I know... you are in the 1/16th forum after all.

    This is the key part of your question. What is the point of having the same speed if you cannot use it because handling is lacking? Besides, out of the box the Revo is also stronger.

    But, since you are resisting our suggestion perhaps you really just want someone to say get the Summit...

    So 1/16 revo handles better and is faster . That's all I wanted to hear . And , if I use the series connector without installing the spare spur gear , will that cause damage ..

    Spare pinion, not spur.

    Yes, it will. Running series is only meant for speed runs on relatively flat smooth surfaces stopping often to check temperatures.

    if you run the speed pinion on the Summit...with the larger tires...you'll overheat pretty quickly.

    Plus...don't series two lipo batteries...you will fry the esc.
    Two nimh in series is the max that the esc can handle and it's still rough on it.

    I don't believe so.

    I know this has been answered, but Santa brought 2 e-revo vxls for my boys and a summit vxl for me. My oldest wanted to race over and over (all 3 are set on training mode) and each time he edged me out, but not by a huge margin in the straight runs, but I rolled mine quite a bit when we raced around the yard. Yes the revos are faster, but I love the truck.

    Buddy of mine has a MERV running 2 Nimh in series and it's fast. I recently got the mini Summit and after about a week I went and bought a 3s Lipo. All things being equal, the MERV is still faster and better handling, but the Summit is more versatile and still plenty fast.
