a older brushed emaxx would do almost as well as a more expensive summit. only advantage the summit has is the lockable diffs...but then its not really meant for crawling IMO.
so you already have a big MOA crawler? most stock MOAs are geared too slow to move threw snow.
3 ways around this.....lower turn motors (if you ESC will allow for it) larger pinion gears (if your motor mount has adjustment for it) or a outcry duel motor ESC. t
hat is what I had in my 1/5 custom mad torque crawler. that esc has several nice features, the main one being the abilitly to run a 3 or even 4s lipo! I found that 3s added enough wheel speed for snow/ice/wet rocks ect. And that truck had I think 70turn brushed motors. that esc is $60 and well worth it imo. it isn't waterproof, but easy enough to make a waterproof box for it. honestly, I just slapped tape over the top of it for snow use.
