    Question Is it worth upgrading to 2.4GH or the new TQI?

    I have the TQ 27mhz that works well. It does sometimes pick up interference and does, albeit rare, respond slowly. I really can't say I have any problems with the current set up but figured maybe a transmitter with better range that used less batteries would be nice. The long antenna on the Jato is not my favorite thing in the world either.

    I know I'm a few transmitters behind and wanted to know what the general consensus on upgrading was. Is it worth finding a good deal on one somewhere or is it not worth spending money on?

    Definitely worth it. The Traxxas 2.4ghz radios can be found for cheap on Ebay all the time

    +1 I have the tqi with dock and love it i have 4 of my rc's linked to it and with the added bonus of the telemetry it's easy to watch temp and make changes to running conditions

    I just set up a new TQi on the jato. Before even running it I can tell the steering is much more crisp feeling. The servo used to "sputter" turning left and its no longer doing that.

    I hope people read this, Id rather not start a new thread. I had problems keeping the car bound to the TX, the car was actually really hot and I had to stop driving because of the heat. Everything was good for a few tanks but the car eventually ran away from me. Ran off under a car, over a curb and came to rest on somebody's lawn. Then I ran it in circles and the wheels would go from turned to straight and the throttle would go from accelerating to neutral; then back to turned and accelerating. I can not replicate the condition so I have to think it was heat, I moved the RX to the other side of the RX box hoping that next time its hot the car won't run away from me again.

    I love the no brake failsafe on the traxxas RX, no I don't. I much would have preferred it to brake instead of going back to neutral.
