TRAXXAS SUMMIT REVIEW
Traxxas Summit Review – Exterior
The Traxxas Summit 1/10 is a hefty, all-electric 4WD RC vehicle standing at about 12” tall, 18” wide and over two feet long. Its exterior body stands out from other Monster RC Cars because of its unique “exoskeleton” around it that we call an “ExoCage.” This ExoCage helps protect the Summit 1/10 outer body as you’re crawling and bashing.
You gotta love the tread on these 7″ Canyon AT tires, which gives you the ability to ride on a multitude of terrains. The tires themselves are filled with soft foam, allowing it to grip and crawl over debris in its path. Want even more features? No problem… The Traxxas Summit 1/10 is decked out with ten pre-installed, bright LED headlights and tail lights that light up automatically.
Traxxas Summit Review – Interior
This RC vehicle has an incredible amount of suspension, offering intense off-road potential greater than any other 4WD Monster Truck in its class. The shocks are oil-filled with titanium nitride shafts that give the Traxxas Summit 1/10 a wide range of motion. The push rods themselves can be adjusted in three different positions, giving you the ability to readjust the overall stiffness of the vehicle. Similar to the E-Revo, the Traxxas Summit 1/10 has dual battery compartments with vents on either side, allowing air to pass through (and the Two Traxxas 7-cell batteries are included – yes!)
Traxxas Summit Review – Motor
The Traxxas Summit 1/10 is equipped with the mother of all motors: The Titan 775. This motor is the largest of all electric Monster RC Trucks and has some serious torque. The motor is armed with a brushed system that is fan-cooled. Ride through puddles, snow and mud worry-free, all the electronics are waterproof. The Traxxas Summit 1/10 also comes equipped with the all-new Ready-To-Race radio system: the Traxxas TQi with 2.4GHz technology. The top speed on this RC vehicle clocks in at about 25MPH, which doesn’t compare to other Monster RC Trucks that can reach speeds up to over 50MPH. But the Traxxas Summit 1/10 does have some pretty awesome 4WD capabilities that make this vehicle a force to be reckoned with. To us, the Traxxas Summit 1/10 doesn’t feel “slow,” as its large tires rip through the dirt and grass. And it’s generally not trying to compete in a race, as its main function is seen clearly as we ride this substantial RC Truck over rocks and boulders.
The Traxxas Summit 1/10 is truly an off-road RC machine. We would have to say this is an incredible cross between a Rock Crawler and Monster Truck with some extra features as well. Ripit RC has everything you need to get into the Traxxas Summit 1/10, including a Drive Now Pay Later easy financing option!
Enjoy the ride,
