    Traxxas powerup question?

    So i have 2 Radios that came in my rusty/slash. One has a rx.

    if i were to trade them in, how much would i have to pay for the 2.4?

    Go to www.traxxas.com and check the power up link, select Ruster/Slash and it will tell you. FYI, you can outright purchase a Link system for the same or less then the power up and keep your old radio.

    I do not think the Power-up 2.4gHz radios are the newest 2.4gHz Link system with model memory .... so just be aware of this.
    Anbody know for sure??
    I make tap adapters and power harnesses.

    One link system can link up to 20 vehicles (I'm pretty sure). You said you had a Rusty and a Slash. You would have to re-bind each time you switched is all I'm saying with the old system. Still a good deal!!

    Factor in shipping it back to Traxxas and you are close, the old 2.4GHz shouldn't be a problem, the new Link are going for between 70-85.

    powerup site shows with shipping 67.50 .. that doesnt include what it costs for you to ship it to them. I was going to do the same, until i found one on line, for 71 .. plus 8 bucks shipping .. and it is the LINK 2.4 .. the power up ones arent, least they werent when i emailed them last week and asked .

    So for practically the same price give or take a buck or too , i get to keep the orig radio also .

    Power up link system?

    Does anyone know if Traxxas is going to do power up with the link system in the near future? Also is the Link that much better of a transmitter then the 2.4??? I have multiple rc vehicles too.

    from my understanding, the link would be very beinificial if you had multi rcs and wanted to use only 1 transmitter, all you need to do is buy multiple recievers.

    Not sure on if they will offer Link in the POWER UP .. i thought i read somewhere that after march they might ?!? but not sure.

    I personally don't think anything on the power up program is a good deal...
    PLEASE do not PM me and immediately go offline :p

    1st-I've been wondering the same thing, still no response from Traxxas

    2nd-Yes, I think it is a better transmitter for the reasons listed in the following post:

    It can be, depends on several things.
    If you are going pay for shipping and all that, the price can come to about the same as just buying a new one. But you can also take it to a participating dealer and avoid shipping altogether. Depends on what radio,

    Like this radio:

    You can save about $50 through power up:
