    No doubt the Summit is big. Now the X Maxx, that's the big boy.

    Do they sell new with the all blue body as well? I would have rather had that then the mess of a design they use on mine.

    My friend has an X-Maxx...it is an impressive beast, but not without it's issues.

    I have no clue. I'm too cheap to pay for a new Summit, so this one is a few years old, purchased from a friend. I don't know the timeline of Traxxas upgrades/updates, but the ESC on this one doesn't have LVC to give you an idea of how old it actually is, lol.

    Nice!

    I am very pleased with mine. It's old, and beat a bit, but runs just perfectly. Not sure how I feel about the big ole tires....might do an LT conversion soon.

    Took the Summit to the track today, ran it with a pair of 2s LIPOs! Man was that fun. For a big goofy, clumsy monster truck I had a blast! Smoked a couple of Slashes (2wds, lol), but the were surprised it's bone stock and brushed. You can definitely see it's Revo heritage.

    I plan on making it more of a crawler, but I just had to have a go at the track, glad I did! What a truck!

    I as well just purchased a new summit back in February. I went for the green one. I love it, took it to a local bmx dirt ramp area last weekend and had a blast. I need to work on mid air control as well as get the rear end to not sag so much.

    Welcome to the club! I have several Traxxas vehicles including the X Maxx. Hands down the Summit is the most awesome vehicle of them all. The places that bad boy will go never fails to amaze me. I love it so much I keep it in my truck just hoping to find a place to run it. Construction sites are a blast.
