Personally I wouldnt call the summit a crawler.

If you want a crawler with speed go for the wraith!

Agree 100%.

The Summit might have a slower gear but it'll never be a crawler.

If anything I would call the Summit a scaler, it's a great truck and all that but if you want a crawler I'd deffinatly go for the Axial

Summit = Big massive kind of crawler monster truck thingy :lol:

SCX10 = Scaler and crawler :)

They are in some form,two different things - I personally find BIG crawlers not as good to crawler with,for example i think the Summit would be like that even though it's a great truck.

Yes it will climb stuff etc,but you won't have the more realistic drive as an SCX10,when that crawls slowly,for example on a 55T motor,it's so much more like the real thing :good:

I agree - Get a 55t motor and a rock crawler Esc in an scx10 and it performs like a fully kitted out defender, scale speeds and incredible torque, I love mine, to the point where I am digging holes in the garden just to play with it,

SPOT ON :D Exactly what i mean.55T motor and 14T pinion with stock spur = lovely :P

Lux off the top of my head,the honcho is the kit,with metal links and steering rods etc,where as the Dingo is RTR with plastic links,however on the plus side,it has lights :P

if you go for the Dingo, the first thing you MUST upgrade are the steering rods, you can get the upgrae for less than £10, and it makes a HUGE differance as the plastic rtr one bends when any load is put on it and you loose a lot of steering.
