 Grin thank u shashank.

i cant take all the credit for the cam angles. the entry of the summit was my friends idea. some of them are my idea and some are his.

and as for the summit it truly is go anywhere. and i have seen lots of ppl complain online that its slow. of course if one is used to a brushless setup then yes its a bit slow. but otherwise its pretty much an all in one.

its raining pretty heavily here right now. so if possible i shall take it out for some more vids tomm.  Grin

only problem is the runtime. i am using 2 sets of 3000 mah NiMh batts. and both the sets give me a combined run time of abt 40 mins. so need higher capacity. and i need NiMh for the water resistance.  Bang Head

apart from that its a magic machine  Tongue

Hey, I just read your comment above. Doesn't the summit come with Mamba Motor and Esc??

Edit: Ignore this one.. Just checked the traxxas site..

Great vid! Thumbs Up
How do you take the Summit so easily into water? I know its waterproof, but still!
I freaked when my Slash splashed around in a small puddle! Cheesy

a small video showing the summit in some water.  Grin

its a little slow as most of it is in water. no probs with it. its running fine.

So the water action video reduces its resale value, or is it increased ? Head Scratching

The resale value of any modern car goes down thew moment you open it up and use it.Even the ones on EBay reduce in value after they are opened.Only vintage cars appreciate in value.(The only that comes to my mind is the RC10).

Coming to this video,I don't think the video will have any effect as the running was within acceptable limits.

Compliment your friend for the idea on my behalf. Its superb. 40 mins run time sounds pretty good to me. If you have a decent charger you can charge your batteries in an hour or so and your trucks ready again. how's the run time on the e-maxx with lipos ?

@Divyam & iamahuman - thx. i went thru almost all the water related threads on the traxxas official forums and a lot of you tube vids before i attempted anything. as an extra precaution i put the batteries in balloons and taped them up. and the esc was also covered lightly with a balloon  Grin

and immediately after the water wash, took it home pulled it apart a bit and let everything dry and sprayed WD-40 on all the metal joints and near the bearings. Hopefully should keep the thing from rusting.

@anwar - Dunno about the resale value, but the desirability value has definitely gone up  Giggle

@tassem - nope. no mamba in this. it comes with a Titan 775 brushed motor and a EVX2 ESC. but i have a few plans. lets see how it turns out.

@shashank - 40 mins is with 2 sets of batteries meaning 4 batteries. The E-maxx on the other hand has been somewhat of a surprise. i have been consistently getting 50-60 mins of runtime on just one set of 6000 mah Lipo's. and i am very heavy on the throttle.

will pick up another set of lipos maybe with a LVC or LVA so that i can run the summit on those when not running in water.

btw anyone know where i can get 48 pitch pinion and spur gears?? i currently have a brushless motor and ESC on order for my sparrowhawk dx and i might need to gear down.

and iamahuman@divyam - what batts are u guys using in ur slash?? and wat runtime are u guys getting on an avg?? yep mine are the Tritech lipos

I think that happens to a lot of dual servo vehicles. I've heard that the 2 servos tens to fight each other.
I  suggest you get 1 good, strong MG Digital servo.

Summit looks great in the 2nd pic Thumbs Up
