So the team here at RC Nightmare has finally had enough with the Traxxas Summit. We don’t mean to say we hate it, just that we have finally decided to part our separate ways from an acute case of, we’ve done all we can do! To be honest there were a lot of things we did to it, things that I thought would change my perspective of the truck , or give it that long term position in our permanent RC garage but alas after many of upgrade its still basically the same truck.What we mean to say is sure, putting in a Mamba Monster made it a little different, it got places faster, it had a little more torque but for the most part it fit the same need and thus it must be on its way to ebay.
Upgrades We Tried Out:
So we didn’t go totally crazy with the upgrades and such but we did do some of the standard stuff. First we picked up a couple of different sets of tires for the Summit but honestly, we had the most fun with the tires originally on the thing, or similar tread patterns. We went for first racers, and then street tires, mudders, etc. The different types of tires did in fact provide a little more fun but larger were more a functional thing.
