    Not really that good of a deal when you consider it's the radio only... When it comes to RX/TX combo's the radio's are always the cheap parts it's the RX's that cost all the money.

    the Link Rx might cost you $45+, end up around $85 for the set.

    rag6 your correct this is the new Traxxas #2217 4 ch "Link" receiver. Most Slash's were shipped with the 5 channel receiver #2218 probably because thats all the had in the supply line. The 5 channel is probably ment for the Summit. Either receiver will work 4 channel here at 34.99 http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...annel-Receiver

    Incorrect, The Traxxas Link Transmitter(Black w/Chrome wheel) will ONLY work with the 2218 RX. Traxxas has made it clear the new Link System is not backward compatible with the 2217 original RX.

    At least tx/rx are on their way! Snatched up the 5ch rx for $46 shipped before I got the tx. Wish I would have known that tower had them cheaper
