    Heres why I got my Summit in the first place.

    Picked up a mini flight camera and used a reamer and the mount it came with to get some nice POV footage. Used Zip ties for the Hitch. Pretty much just a stock summit. Found the wagon on Amazon. Love Being an RC family.

    Traxxas, the Summit is the best out of the box RC ever, thanks.

    That is awesome man! And I have to agree. As far as out of the box performance the Summit is the best!

    How long did the battery last on those high-load situations?

    My charger said I replaced about 3200mAh, lasted about 45 minutes. Motor was barely warm ESC was even less warm, close to ambient temp. I would have went longer but it got dark. Also I didn't want to run out of battery across the park and have to pull the wagon. That's so 20th century.

    Can you send a link for the wagon. That is a great idea.

    I knew I wasn't the only one! That's way cool.
    To be honest we were doing pull weight tests with stock rig.... I once saw a fella on UTube towing himself on a skateboard along a road.

    I tow our bike trailer with all of our park gear with my Summit. It's awesome. I get a ton of looks when I do it. It's pretty hilarious.

    The summit should be the ultimate tow-rc. Do you guys tow more than you off road? LOL

    I don't have much time to do either, but I got the Summit specifically for its out of the box towing power. It is a blast to off road/rock crawl with when I can.

    Yea this is also why I got mine. I use to pull my 2yr old in his wagon with my pede but got tired of changing pinion gears. Bought summit used for 200 and it's doing the job. It also pulled me with my son.

    Cool

    ditto on the Summit being an aaawesome rig, I couldn't be happier with mine so far.

    and I gotta grin on with you all talking about pullin' the kiddos around... about 3 weeks ago I did my first "grunt test" to see if I could pull my 31 lb grandson who was going to be spending part of the weekend with us

    so this is my 2 year old Summit (stock power) on 2x 7-Cell 3300 mAh NiMHs... with 30lbs in a Costco Rubbermaid cart that weighs 35lbs... so 60+ lbs from a dead stop... and with a bum front tire

    slipper clutch or some other pinion gears might even be slipping some haha

    hard to tell in the vid but there is a slight grade from the (very loose) gravel driveway/parking area down to the right along tree line running left to right as well as from the front of the garage out towards the parking area out to the fenceline.

    I got my Summit mostly to drive through cow paddies. Currently I don't have in photos though.
