The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race® Radio System
Total Control. Traxxas models deserve the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The radio system after all is the sole connection between the driver and machine. It has to be precise, comfortable, powerful, and reliable. The all-new Traxxas® TQi™ radio system arrives with a full compliment of tuning features; long-range, high-output, 2.4GHz signal, and proven Traxxas reliability for rock-solid performance. It's so advanced; it doesn't even need an external antenna. However, the most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an optional Docking Base (#6510) that turns your iPhone® or iPod touch® into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the Traxxas Link™ App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control.
5-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TQi 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 outputs for easy installation in vehicles with dual steering servos—no Y-harness necessary! The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. Traxxas Link Model Memory allows the receiver to recognize up to thirty TQi 2.4Ghz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters—just switch on and drive. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is built-in and does not need to be set or activated. Three telemetry ports are incorporated in the 5-channel receiver to allow real-time data to be transmitted from your Traxxas model to the TQi transmitter.
EVX-2™ Waterproof Electronic Speed Control
The EVX-2 delivers an incredible 16.8 volts from two battery packs. Designed by Traxxas, the EVX-2 features a completely waterproof design, low-voltage detection, three drive profiles, Thermal Shutdown Protection, and gold-plated, high-current battery connectors. The EVX-2 also includes patent-pending Training Mode™. This profile reduces the overall power output of the EVX-2 by 50% making it easier for young/new drivers to develop their control skills before unleashing full-power operation.

Power Cell LiPo Batteries
Designed from the start for high-voltage, high-capacity LiPo packs, Traxxas' Summit now includes a pair of genuine Traxxas Power Cell LiPo battey packs—the only LiPos certified to deliver the full performance potential of Traxxas' most versitile all-terrain truck. Summit includes two 5000mAh 2-cell Power Cell LiPo battery packs. Summit arrives with Low Voltage Detection activated to assure maximum battery life and prevent over-discharging.
LiPo Balance Chargers
Charging care is just as important to LiPo life and performance, so a pair of 2-Cell / 3-Cell LiPo Balance chargers are also included. Just plug the battery's balance plug into the charger and you're on the way to another run—no programming or settings required. Every time a pack is charged, the cells are charged individually to precisely balance voltage for optimum performance, run time, and cycle life. Experience the ultimate in electric horsepower with the only models designed for LiPo power from the start, and genuine Power Cell LiPo technology on board.
High-Torque Titan® 775 Power
Summit gets its spin from the largest motor of any electric monster truck—the Titan 775. This massive mill is equipped with a fan-cooled armature for nonstop off-road adventure, and an extra wrap of steel around the can for maximum magnetic field strength—that means more torque to tame the trail and conquer any climb. Summit's single-motor mount keeps the Titan 775 powerplant low and tight to the chassis for a low CG and surefooted handling. Click here for more info.
Traxxas High-Current Connectors
The EVX-2 electronic speed control comes equipped with Traxxas High-Current Connectors. Designed to handle high-current applications, Traxxas Connectors effortlessly funnel the dual battery's total power to the electronics, keeping things running cool and at full capacity.

Waterproof Receiver Box
Summit is the latest truck to feature Traxxas' exclusive waterproof electronics. This exclusive Traxxas innovation opens the door for driving fun in water, mud, snow, and other wet conditions that stop others dead in their tracks. The patent-pending waterproof electronics box allows the installation of your own radio system without losing the watertight properties.
Dual Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servos
Waterproof digital steering servos (#2075) use O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Twin servos are lighter and more compact than a single large servo, and together they deliver unmatched monster steering response with a full 250 oz. in. of tire-turning torque and quick .16-second transit time. The servos operate a ball-bearing-supported bellcrank with an integrated servo saver for precise control and rock-conquering durability.
Heavy-Duty High-Low Transmission
Speed for the trail. Torque for the rocks.
Not only is Summit the first truck to offer remote locking diffs, it's also the only truck equipped with a remote-shifting High-Low transmission. In low gear, Summit's 70:1 final-drive ratio turns rpm into pure torque to power up and over any obstacle that dares to get in the way. Upshift to high for a 25:1 ratio and all the speed you need to attack jumps and make tracks in a hurry.
Summit's transmission is skillfully configured to sit low in the chassis and hold the Titan 775 motor as low as possible for best climbing performance, even at very steep angles. The low-CG transmission also gives Summit sure-footed handling on the trail. An oversized steel idler gear and patent-pending Torque Control™ slipper clutch are built to handle the massive torque of Summit's power system.
The First-Ever Remote Locking Differential
For the first time, it is possible to switch from the smooth handling of silicone-filled differentials to the tenacious traction of locked diffs just by flipping a switch on the transmitter. At your command, the servo-actuated T-Lock™ system engages eight steel drive dogs to lock the differential. Match the locking mode to the challenges of the terrain; Summit's T-Lock differential system allows you to select front-lock for dig-style turns in tight quarters, front and rear lock for total climbing traction, or front and rear open differentials for optimum handling and a tight turning radius. Patent pending.
10-LED Lighting System
No need to head for the garage when the sun goes down; Summit lights up the night with an integrated LED illumination system. Four bright white LEDs blaze the trail ahead, while six red LEDs show where Summit's been. The LEDs are integrated into the bumpers for durability and convenience, and the chassis-mounted wiring harness eliminates the possibility of tangles and hooked wires.
Realistic & Rugged ExoCage™ Body
Summit's aggressive SUV-style bodywork doesn't just look tough; with its bolt-on fender flares and tube-style ExoCage skeleton, it's as rugged as a real rock rig. Flexible to bounce back after a rollover yet tough enough to spare the lexan body from rock-rash, the ExoCage combines authentic real-rock-rig looks with genuine protection.
Geode™ Wheels, Soft Foam Inserts and Canyon AT™ Tires
An off-road machine is only as good as its tires, and Summit delivers with the biggest, gnarliest Traxxas tire ever—the Canyon AT. This multi-terrain tread features aggressive, angular lugs that dig in on dirt, grass, roots, and rocks to get Summit up and over anything you aim it at. Soft foam inserts let the rubber conform to surfaces for maximum grip, and new Geode rims hold the tires tight with beadlock style. The removeable rings protect the rim edges and tire sidewalls from rock rash and lend additional support to the tire/rim glue joint.
Dual-CV Telescoping Axles
Locked differentials, a powerful motor, and high-traction tires are the perfect recipe for overstressed driveshafts, so Summit is equipped with the toughest Traxxas shafts ever. The smooth-sliding, true-curvilinear spline design pioneered for Revo® is now even stronger thanks to CV-style joints on each end—an industry first. The joints' crosspins are supported by the full diameter of the shaft, so even the heaviest torque loads won't pop the joint.
Dual-Servo Steering System
High-traction tires and a low-speed technical climb—that's a combo that demands a lot of steering torque, and Summit delivers with a dual-servo system. Each servo is rated for 125 oz.-in. of torque, giving Summit a total of 250 oz.-in. of tire-turning twist to keep you in command no matter how tough the conditions.
Heavy-Duty 17mm Hex Hubs
17mm splined aluminum hex hubs proven tough by the Revo Platinum Edition make certain all of Summit's considerable torque is delivered directly to the treads. The splined design is extra strong with unsurpassed torque handling to resist twist-out no matter how hard Summit pulls at the tires.
Quick-Release Battery Doors
Summit uses an innovative solution for easy battery installation. Quick-release battery doors snap open and closed in seconds for fast and easy battery installation. There are no clips to lose in the field, and fast battery changes during pit stops let you spend more time on the trail and less time on the bench.
Battery Compartment Vents
Resembling the exhaust ducts of a turbine powered jet, the futuristic battery vents are securely mounted on the chassis. In addition to offering entrance and exit cooling, the oversized openings incorporate latches that insert into the battery door clasps. The battery compartment vents symbolize the sleek and high-tech image that places Summit in a class of its own.
Futuristic Chassis Design
Summit's groundbreaking E-Revo molded chassis sets a new benchmark for electric monster truck looks and performance. The chassis combines art and function to deliver a lightweight, integrated, and rigid platform that maximizes strength and reduces weight. Scalable battery compartments accept a variety of battery* configurations to unlock Summit's power potential. By combining the battery compartments with the chassis design, the battery packs can sit low and close to the center of the truck, plus valuable chassis surface is freed up to accommodate the electronics for a clean layout. This keeps the center of gravity (CG) as low as possible, allowing for steeper climb angles, greater side-hill stability, and responsive handling at speed.
Rigidity, Strength, Protection
The smooth center skid plate both protects and strengthens. Critical driveline components are shielded from the elements for long life. A cover provides access for maintenance. Summit's smooth underside slides over rocks and other obstacles to keep you rolling when other trucks have to head for home.
High-Tech GTR Shocks
Summit wears the best shocks in the business, our hard-anodized, PTFE-coated GTR dampers. Threaded bodies and oversized spring collars make it easy to set preload, and long-wearing, low-friction titanium-nitride shafts provide slick shock action for superior suspension response and reliability.
The Most Suspension Travel
Ultra-long-travel suspension based on the award-winning E-Revo gives Summit more travel and articulation than any other monster truck, while the independent suspension and tall Canyon AT tires allow incredibly steep approach angles and sky-high ground clearance no other truck can match.
