Traxxas Brushed 1/16 RTR Summit

Jan 11, 2011 No Comments by

Summit Style and Titan Torque in 1/16 scale! Traxxas offers their popular 1/16 Summit in a brushed version to meet your hobby budget.

New from Traxxas:

Barely as tall as a single tire on the 1/10 scale Summit, the new 1/16 Summit’s super convenient and fun size packs in massive suspension travel, high-torque Titan® 12T 550 motor, and 4-wheel drive traction to tackle impossible terrain and turn “no way” into “no problem.” Traxxas engineers have managed to pack all the big Summit’s go-anywhere versatility into a smaller machine that knows no boundaries. Waterproof? Check. Traxxas tough durability? You bet. Traxxas engineers built this one to run hard with its all-new extreme duty driveshafts, rugged ExoCage body, beefed up suspension damping, and scale Canyon AT ™ tires. The 1/16 Summit’s just-right size lets you enjoy hours of off-road fun anywhere, anytime!

Modified Muscle

Leave it to Traxxas to put the huge torque of a the Titan 550 motor into the 1/16 Summit for unstoppable climbing, roosting, monster performance! The Titan modified motor is designed for incredible mod-motor power output with virtually maintenance-free operation, and long-lasting performance. The Titan 12T 550 motor’s integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through the motor to keep temperatures down. Airflow is routed through vent tunnels molded in the motor plate. A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. The XL-2.5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. Three drive profiles, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance are all features you might expect to only be available on an expensive replacement ESC.

Proven Traxxas Innovation

No detail was overlooked in our mission to bring all the capability, durability, and excitement of Traxxas’ award-winning models to 1/16 scale for fast, affordable R/C fun. The 1/16 Summit is built on the race-winning, track-proven innovation of the Revo and E-Revo models. The standard-bearer of design excellence, the Revo’s F1-inspired, rocker-actuated suspension has been expertly adapted to 1/16 scale with all its functionality and performance intact, right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks. This superior technology provides capability, performance, and tuning functions at the absolute pinnacle of truck design. The suspension and electronics are fully integrated into the semi-monocoque chassis design that stunned the world when it debuted with the E-Revo. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength and weight, function and aesthetics, convenience and performance to far surpass the standards of the “mini” category. In 1/16 scale, it is an even more impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio Control®.

Optimized for All-Terrain Excitement

The 1/16 Summit is built on proven innovation of the 1/16 E-Revo and 1/16 Slash 4WD models and dialed in with a multi-terrain setup for exceptional versatility and fun. The unique inboard suspension is equipped with long-travel rockers for maximum ground clearance and traction in rough terrain. Long-wheelbase rear suspension arms put an extra 10mm between the axles for superior stability. New Geode 2.2″ chrome rims hold Canyon AT tires with the same aggressive tread pattern as the “big” Summit to deliver tenacious off-road traction.

Waterproof Electronics For Go-Anywhere R/C Adventure

1/16 Summit looks ready for anything because it is ready for anything! Fully waterproof electronics to keep the fun rolling through water, mud and snow while lesser trucks stay on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses Traxxas’ micro AM receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the Summit’s waterproof properties. The XL-2.5 electronic speed control and high-torque, digital micro servo are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom to go places other cars wouldn’t dare to venture.

100% Ready-To-Drive®

The 1/16 Summit is fully assembled with TQ AM radio system, XL-2.5 electronic speed control, Titan® 12T 550 motor, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger are also included, making the Summit truly Ready-To-Drive. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of Traxxas vehicles, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas’ exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs the Summit and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your questions via phone, website, or e-mail.
