Also look at the Sale/trade forums. You might find a good radio for a good price.

with your revo and then a truggy you will be maxed out as far as being able to run anymore cars with this. I would at least get the dx3 so you will have a 4 model memory. that is unless you are gonna stick to just 2 cars. you'll also get 2 receivers with the dx3 so both cars you have now would have one.

you'll have to switch to the receiver that comes with the DX2, unless the Revo came with a 2.4 GHZ radio, then you might be able to just bind that one to the DX2. FM receivers won't work with 2.4 gHZ radios.
