After a couple weeks of inactive trucks, a bit has changed. My friend's Slash 4x4 has broken down and is at the lhs being serviced and it wasn't going to be easy, so he decided to sell his truck when it's fixed and he went ahead and purchased his new Traxxas 1/16 Summit VXL. It's pretty awesome now that there's two similar trucks out running at one time, my merv and his new summit go very well together. We went ahead and filmed a new video this past week and it went kinda well. We took it to a new setting and tried new things. Here's the result, hope you like it!...
If you don't mind, please like/comment on this video! Sharing is appreciated as well! haha
Great vid as always Carbon. How did your buddy get that digital camo on the summit? Is it a wrap or did he paint the outside of a stock white body?
Thanks man! He got a new summit body immediately and put digital camo duct tape on the outside and trimmed around the windows. Came out very well. It's still a clear body, never painted.
GREAT VIDEO!!! Very well composed! Thanks
I never thought to take my toys to the jungle gym - tomorrow.....yup!
Extra info: I (the revo) did end up breaking and losing parts on this video...Lost the small center screw that holds down the rear body tower. Lost some body pins. Stripped out the end of a front turnbuckle. It still put up quite a fight. The summit performed amazingly in this environment!
Extremely great video, I love the song choices and of course, the content.
I was looking at your other videos, this part is funny.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UL...tailpage#t=59s
I should sell my 1/16 slash, or fix it up... I dunno!

Awesome vid mate , any chance of some pix of the summit?
Sure thing, I'll try to get some up soon.
Here are a few pics gathered from the video...
Filmed a short one today. Enjoy!
Awesome mate ,
I wish I never watched that.
now I want one even more
I guess that's a good thing.
Nice video, what springs, and oil do you have on the merv, are you running stock motor-Esc ?
Thanks, I'm running stock (greens, I think) on front and black on rear. 50wt all around.
Turned out sweet. When I can't get my son w summit to go to the dirt i take my merv out back to the playground. It's great. Don't forget to remove the center skid n get the mulch out. It gets into the darnedest places.
Modded to the Max
Drive it like its Hot
Yea, my friend and I got mulch in front of the transmission, around the driveshaft. Fell out after a good shaking. haha Nice pic btw! That bridge looks fun! lol
Everything is cooler is slow motion! Nice vid
New video coming soon. We started filming again, this time with the Summit by itself. This video will show what the Summit is all about, so it will definitely belong on this forum section as it's 100% Summit this time. The video should have around 95% of the runs in dirt, less tarmac driving. I've gotten my hands on a ~16ft telescopic pole that's been in my garage, so today I fastened my GoPro on it, so new angles have been planned and tested. We filmed a little bit today and got some clips that will be incorporated in to the final video. Get ready!!!
@RC-Fan, Yes, I'm running the stock ESC and motor in the merv.
