OK, so I ran my stampede with the stock radio from the factory. One, even when trying to adjust endpoints on steering, it just wouldn't get me where I wanted. Two, after recalibrating my esc to my m11, the truck finally felt alive. Truly, I couldn't believe the difference. I felt like I had so much more control over the truck and it had more punch. I don't know, the 2.4ghz traxxas radio is cool, but it needs a graphic display inmho. It is very hard to actually discern where you are in terms of programming.
