What do you think of this deal? And how hard would the fixes be?
I got mine brand new from Traxxas for $499, it had a slow wall charger, all necessary books/tools, and 2 nimh batteries. I would get a fast charger immediately but the batteries last 45-70 minutes a run. Most people aren't getting that kind of run time, but I find good battery habits keep them stronger longer. And as 123Jato said, they are essentially indestructible.

123Jato A new summit is the same price. Rather buy new. They usually come with batteries and a charger. The nice part about them is their lockers. They don't really go fast enough to brake either unless you crash into a wall.

A Jeep Named Jack I have the Summit along with several others and the Summit is far overbuilt! Nimh batteries are cheaper initially and in my opinion are safer. Lipos are more expensive initially but offer more performance essentially. I have never ran Lipos simply because Nimhs have never failed me. Also, Traxxas has much more aftermarket support so you will have no problem getting parts from anywhere! Both are plug in play, I have always had great luck with Traxxas and have no experience with Thunder
Tiger. Traxxas also has great customer service(I only needed them once and my parts were free of charge, not for my Summit though).

Lowerumble I actually like the look of the Summit better and considered that one. But from my limited research (who knew these were as complicated as the real thing!) I thought that the Traxxis 1/10ths weren't as "tough" as the MT4 1/8th scale. But I really have no idea, I havent even seen one of these in person, LOL. I am still a little confused as to what battery setup and how many I would need to have a fun vehicle. I really just want to be able to screw around as much as possible, but without "burning out" motors and other stuff. I am sure that 30mph would be plenty if I could run it that fast without over wear. I will keep watching some used ones and see what you guys think! Thanks!

A Jeep Named Jack Lowerrumble, be sure to check out the 1/10th Traxxas Summit. I noticed you said you wanted to be able to just play in the dirt and grass now and likely grab an scx10 jeep rubicon later. The Summit is the jack of all trades, it has a high/low speed transmission and locking differentials. In high gear, it is rated for 30mph, while it doesn't seem like much, it is quite impressive considering it weighs about 13lbs and will drag a 100lb person across the ground. It also comes with the necessary batteries, chargers and tools.

I suggest the stampede4x4 which is cheaper then the tiger and the one that I personally use at the beach. Or if you want it bigger for some reason a brushless emaxx but you need 2 batteries and 2chargers for that one as opposed to one on the stampede. The e-revo is more of a street vehicle.

09-08-2013 07:31 PM
amcjeep quickly reading some comparisons between that and a Revo on line, it seems like a pretty good machine. But I am not sure with the speed of some of these things, especially a brushless lipo set up is for "just playing around the yard" You usually need a pretty descent size area to have it up to speed and control it safetly with out hazards.

Look at videos of cars that interest you on youtube, see if they fit what you think your style will be
09-08-2013 06:15 PM
Lowerumble Ok, so I did a little research and targeted two used Thunder Tiger MT4 GT3 last night on ebay and they both sold already. So I was going to post links and ask opinions, but apparently I am too late. What is your opinion on a used rig vs new and on that Thunder Tiger model? I will grab a Jeep later too, but for now I just want something to play with in the dirt and grass around my house...

Jato was the name of a gas powered one that I loved that did 65. Electric has now surpassed gas Rc cars so I sold all gas ones. They do not look like jeeps, But their own little class of vehicles.

For an electric one that does around 60-70mph you are looking at $350-400 for truck, $70 on a battery and $100 for a charger.

Tires are Proline Super Swampers TSL, wheels are some weighted beadlocks, I found on Amazon. They were a pain to put together, but fit, work and look good. Vanquish led light bar on their Poison Spyder style light mounts. Front bumper is a Tough Armor stubby. I will be getting their rear bumper and tire carrier sometime. I mainly just play with it in the yard, nothing serious.

And then they have a comp crawler I believe too.

Then it depends on type of battery, gear ratios, motor etc. My son has a stock wraith, and was running a 3000mah ni-cad battery. It was quick enough for him (5 years old) at probably 7mph and lasted 15-20 minutes. I just switched it over to a much smaller Lipo 3s 1000mah it is a little quicker, and last 20 minutes or so. But this battery is small enough I was able to relocate it to where a radiator would be. And this also allows it to crawl better.

If you want speed, I am sure 123Jato has some info, considering he has Jato in his name I believe those will do 50+ mph with a lipo and brushless motor
You are correct my friend. Mine do around 55-65mph. But I sold all but 2 to fuel my "real Rc car"(my jeep) upgrades. But the only two that I kept were for speed, and I like the idea of a crawler. It would be fun to build one up to match my jeep exactly, but I would rather spend my time and money on the real thing at this time.
09-05-2013 08:28 PM
Curt93acw I want one!!!
09-05-2013 04:47 PM
Big Fran I've been into RC for 30 years. I still build planes, cars and trucks. I have heli's but only had luck with them on the sim.





09-05-2013 02:24 PM
Rancho Good advice. My first was a Wraith RTR, broke lots, learned lots, invested lots. Sold it to a buddy at a loss (like a Jeep, but had fun with it) and bought a BUILT (VP, Tekin, Holmes, every bell and whistle) and now I am "done".. but I do like these JK bodies... YES A beer smilie!

I have been into the RC HOBBY for well over 25 years, and nothing is more expensive than RC HELI'S, and i did that for about 5 years. At one point i had 15 grand in heli's in my Heli room. NO MORE heli's for me.....Although i still 3D other friends Heli's.

It is but it is a blast!

Fun to bring out on the trail or at the end of the day.
I have two Wraiths, one for the son (slow but capable) and mine... basically a mini ULTRA4 race car.
09-05-2013 10:36 AM
Lowerumble Ha. I don't know if anyone else watched the video, but spoiler alert.... The Toyo is the only one that doesn't make it.
09-04-2013 10:33 PM
Arsonman Yes, this does appear to be a neat thing. Lots of video on Youtube. Here is a good one I found.
