You don't NEED an M8/M11. It has more options than you will most likely every use. That MX-3 FHSS would be perfect. I loved my MX-3. It has all the options you need and very few you don't.

Looks pretty good. It has all the features that are important, and the price is really good for a radio that has all of those features! I don't know much about the specific model... maybe someone can offer some input?

i way agree with k_b why spend 400 when i can spend 180 lol. a guy at a lhs suggeted this company he does have the 400 dollar one but said it was a little over kill. he suggest the mx3. i did a lot of research to come up with this radio.

You need a glow ignighter, starter box, temp gun, fuel bottle, glow plug wrench and maybe a few other small items. You're choices are fine if you're just staring out

the mx-3 fhss is fine, it's what i use when running electric or nitro. before the mx-3 fhss i used a regular mx-3. i would suggest finding a radio with all the features you want and then if possible hold it in your hand. the feel of the radio makes a big difference (for me at least).

yeah getting radio hand sucks. that is a disadvantage of shopping online and being in a full leg cast.

Everything you have listed sounds great. The only thing I can think of adding is some additional tires. Other then that you are good to go.

Welcome to the racing side of things! Just remember to be patient when building the car and practice practice practice. Welcome once again. Good luck!

This is more of a luxury item, but it might be a good idea to pick up a radio bag.

For tires, I've found that BowTies and CrimeFighters seem to work on a pretty wide range of surfaces, but the best thing to do is to find out what the local racers are running.
