Is it really worth that? cause pretty much this thing only charges, no motor run in and low discharge rate. I dont need Lipo charging either.
I already have a GFX, is this a better charger? honestly can you feel a difference. I run Oval so step charging really hasnt taken off yet either in our arena.

most shops in the US sells the CTX-CM for $209. if anything happens you just send it back to the distributor or LHS for service.
If you live in the USA, there is pretty much no advantage to purchasing the charger overseas. Prices are not currently in the $140-$160 range overseas...check out precisionrc and rcmodel; both sell the charger for $189. Shipped to the USA, the prices are pretty much equal.
The thing that makes the CM different is generally the way it charges...it has the most pure linear current available on the market. As a result, the CM causes less voltage fluctuation during charge and utilizes significantly lower delta peak settings.
Aside from this, most racers like being able to have a temp cutoff and having foolproof insurace against false peak. Also, it doesn't "have fits" with dead-shorted packs.
