    I do spend some loot... but the time is much much more.... my justification to mod; run it so hard it breaks so I can update or upgrade....

    Well, honestly, the biggest investment I've made to my two summit trucks cost me $1000. With this improvement I can now go anywhere I want, and back, with confidence. I can hike for miles and miles, crawl for hours, and never have to worry about not being able to get back...

    Those are indeed Dynamite 2s 25c 8000mAh batteries. About $100 each.
    I use two Thunderpower 610c Chargers and one (per truck, on the driver's side - BEC side plug) Common Sense Lipo alarm, this little alarm fits in with the battery pack once you remove the small foam piece.

    I built the bodies on my truck. Bent the tube, molded the plastic and formed the metal.. Other than that, what you see is big tires on basic summit stuff no fancy parts here...
