I’m not sure if this question has been asked before, but can you get the TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio system and the receiver for it on their own, or can you only get these with a new vehicle? I would guess that you could, but I don’t know. And if you could, about how much would it cost?
The reason I am asking this is that I haven’t bought any real upgrades lately (I did the light a little while back, but that was more like a low-budget project ). So I think it is time for a little spring treat for my truck.
As you probably know, I like to do different and interesting things (well, at least what I find different and interesting) on my T-MAXX. So when the Summit came out, I thought that its radio system was pretty nice. I was thinking of what I could do with the extra channel, and I’m now thinking that I could use the 3-position toggle switch to operate the lights. Instead of just a on/off switch for the lights, I could use the toggle on the transmitter: one position for ‘off’, the middle position for ‘on’ (with operating brake lights, where the taillights are normally dim and only get bright when the brakes are hit, I already have this system working well), and the third position would just make the taillights go bright all of the time (where they would stay bright, even when the brakes are not being applied, this may be useful when running at night, where the truck is moving away from me and is at a far distance and I may not be able to see the normally dim taillights). Of course I could find other uses for the fourth channel and toggle switch, but that is just an idea.
But that wasn’t enough for me to actually go and buy the transmitter and receiver. But now that I see the Summit has TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio system, and I was thinking of getting the new TQ 2.4GHz for my truck anyway, to me it now seems like an upgrade worth getting. Any information on whether they are available, their price, or any comments at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
*Edit* - Plus, I have been kind of busy with school lately, and I am just getting over a virus or something that I (and my father) have had for about the past week. So I have been short on opportunity and will power to disassemble my truck and send the chassis out to FLM to get a replacement (I know, I know, that should have been taken care of already). Now it is just starting to get nice out and I want to get that taken care of, so maybe an upgrade like this will give me the kick in the rear end to do it .
