    You might also want to consider the new Traxxas radio, with Traxxas link. It looks pretty cool. You can connect it to up to 20 different models. It has EPA, expo and a bunch of other stuff. And it's...

    OK, NiMH batteries are great. You can do back flips with 2 batteries in series if you really want.

    Thread back on track. Sorry.

    I have seen the numbers, too. All three of these are about the same. Bullets, though (like on an EC3 connector), have about double the resistance, though.

    If you know the tricks, the Traxxas connectors are just as easy (some say easier) to solder than the Deans.

    Deans and Traxxas connectors have about the same resistance. So performance will be...

    You are in the minority. As are all racers. Race radios don't need good range. I'll admit, though, the features and response do matter on the track. They don't matter in the back yard, where most...

    Looks like we have a Traxxas hater.

    Anyhow, if you're happy with short range (300ft or so), get a DX2.0. If you want more than double that, try the Traxxas.

    "Haha, Traxxas' service, but...

    Then you are in the minority. And you can live with an underperforming radio system. It's good enough for you, but not good enough for most.

    What's wrong with the Traxxas 2.4GHz? I've heard it works just fine. And it's backed up by Traxxas' service, which is a huge plus.

    Oh yeah, the 1/16th trucks have a bit shorter range for some reason. I remember now. But a Rustler; it'll do 1000ft at the drop of a hat.

    You said "why do you need to go farther than 300ft? Any...

    Yes, I've heard the same about the range. 300ft!! That is simply horrible! I've heard of some people buying the top of the line DX3R and getting less than 500ft. Rediculous. Do some searches on some...

    Define crap? I know the brakes aren't uber-powerful on the truck, but they do an adequate job of slowing it down. You don't really need any more. It's necessary to have brakes that will endo the car....

    If you want to use just one TX, and my RX, you can bind one Traxxas 2.4GHz TX to many RX. For example, if you have one each of the minis (Slash and E-Revo), you can bind the TX to both RX. And the...

    In general, higher KV = lower efficiency. So if you were to take your 7k motor and gear the truck to go 50MPH on 12S NIMH, it'll be less efficient than the stock 4000KV motor going 50MPH on 12S NiMH....

    I think a Hitec HS-81 will drop right in. I have also heard a Hitec HS-81 will last for about 10minutes before it's toast. Give it a try and let us know.

    If you really want to gear it down and make it really slow, you can take the transmission apart and swap some gears around. It changes the internal gear ratio tremendously.
