Do y'all think I could make a traxxas summit from the ground up Cheeper than buying a new one?
Not much, but you could put the items you really want in it for around the same price.
I have priced it out... shipping kills it even if you get the parts super cheap in eBay.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
At the average Dutch LHS it would cost me 2.5 times the price of a complete car.
Nobody is born with experience
If I do end up building one I will post pictures and how much I spend on it. What type of motor do you think I should get the vxl or mamba?
I'd go with the stock motor but different ESC. Like the Mamba Max Pro or the Sidewinder 2 or 3
Drive. Crash. Fix. Repeat.
