Default any summits out there?

I bought one about two months ago primarily for this winter and installed some jumbo kongs on it too


the jumbo kongs kill the truck but in the winter with little traction i think they will do well.

yeah i like them but just couldnt justify the money.

the jumbo kongs killed the rear diff pretty fast and kept stripping out wheels.

I ran tire screws on my Tmaxx. The owner of the hobby shop and I were both very surprised how well the worked.
