Default Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR Radio Question

I know the 8ight comes with a Spektrum DX3S but I was wondering if anyone knew if the one that comes with the 8ight now has been updated to the DSM2 version. The first DX3S's that came out were just DSM but are now DSM2. Is that the case as well with the ones that come with the 2.0?

The 8ight 1.0 RTR came with a DX2.0, DSM1. The 8ight 2.0 RTR comes with a DX3S, DSM1.

So I read that to mean that the newer DX3S will not be in the 2.0 RTR box at any time?

If I understandthis correctly is does say the rx will work with dsm1 and 2 rx's.

Combining Spektrum’s industry-leading 2.4GHz DSM® technology with valuable telemetry features, the DX3S represents the most advanced sport-level DSM radio ever developed. RTR drivers and sport racers can add the safety of telemetry and monitor vital vehicle stats right from their transmitter, without any additional equipment. Keep your engine operating in the optimum temperature range, keep an eye on your battery voltage and check out just how fast your vehicle is running, all right from the large LCD readout of the DX3S. The DX3S is now compatible with the MR3000 and DSM2 surface receivers too.

And that's what I was asking. Are the ones in the RTR boxes going to be updated. I guess I'll shoot an email to Losi.
