It seems like the question of whether or not the Summit is brushless ready remains to be seen.
But here are a couple of questions from someone who knows very little about B/L (I did have a T4 with a Novak B/L system for racing but that's it). First, is there value in going brushless in a truck more or less made for going slow? Are there B/L motors made more for torque than rpms? And if brushless would be as good for the Summit as it is for the E-Revo....is Traxxas going to release a B/L Summit shortly after the release of the regular Summit?
Also, the specs may say and I didn't notice, but will the Summit handle lipos in its stock form?
