Traxxas introduces the next generation of 2.4GHz radio system performance and its now included with the Traxxas Summit! Forget about crystals and frequency conflicts! The transmitters easy-to-use design provides the instant, worry-free, turn-it-on-and-go driving fun you expect from Traxxas, while also delivering a full compliment of pro-level tuning features for those who wish to explore the expanded tuning possibilities. The Multi-Function knob on the face of the transmitter can be programmed to control a variety of functions such as steering exponential, steering and braking dual rate, and throttle trim. Other tuning options include end point adjustment, servo reversing, and sub trim adjustment. The new TQ 2.4GHz radio system pumps out a crystal-clear signal and provides the reliable performance that you expect from Traxxas. The 13ms frame rate and near zero latency results in instant steering and throttle response along with fast, precision control.
Named Best Innovation by the readers of Radio Control Car Action and RC Driver magazines, the award-winning Summit is equipped with the first-ever remote locking differential system (patent pending), allowing you to independently lock and unlock the front and rear differentials right from your transmitter. The unique high/low transmission adds even greater multi-terrain versatility, and Summit goes where no solid axle truck can thanks to its exclusive linkage based suspension system with unmatched suspension travel, tunable progressive damping and independent ride height adjustment. For total control even in wet conditions, Summit is equipped with exclusive, waterproof electronics. Only Traxxas makes it possible to run through water, mud and snow without worry. Summit is offered fully assembled and Ready-To-Drive with the TQ 2.4GHz radio system and Power Cell batteries.

Truck is way bigger then expected. Traxxas claims its 1/10 Scale but this truck is bigger then other 1/8 trucks I have.
Speed is alright not crazy fast but it has plenty of power. Motor and Gears are pretty quiet compared to other trucks.
The Lights are just amazing, Bright and actually light the way of the truck. They just add that extra something to a truck that already has it all.
Suspension is just amazing. So much travel and the rocker arms make it so smooth.
The ESC does not have Low Voltage Cut off. So if you are looking to run Lipos you will need to get an External Cut off. only 20$ on Ebay and easy to install.
All in all I am very happy with the truck it is worth every penny.
