Hey man, he's just asking for advice, don't be saying stuff like "its the best". Just give your opinion or experience.

And yes the O.S. puts out plenty of power. For example, I run my buggy at Fear Farm RC in Phoenix, AZ. You can look up the track on youtube if you want.But I run a 8mm restrictor, get close to 10 minutes run time, and only give it full throttle in 2 spots on the track, and only for a very short time. I also build a friend's car for him, he runs an Orion CRF. They make about the same power, but the O.S. is much easier to tune.

I know airtronics can handle lipo's. I have spektrum. I know a lot of people think spektrums are low grade, but mine works fine with lipo's and life battery packs.

Airtronis and KO are lipo ready. Get the best radio you can, you'll have it for a looooong time.

Lots of people having trouble with Savox servos. Don't go cheap, get 7955 servos. Servo's haven't been part of my budget for years, I just keep running the same olde 7955's.

I have had great luck with my Futaba S9352HV.

I run them for steering and throttle in both my buggy and my truggy. Have been running them for almost 6 months now with no issues. (I just started racing nitro 6 months ago)

Hi JellyBeans999, your stuffs are almost the same as me. I'm also running RC8.2 with two Savox 1268 and Futaba 3PL. They perform great with no failure for me so far. However, I've plan to upgrade my radio soon either MX-3X or MT4 because from my study I found that R2004GF can only handle 6.0v (not sure if I'm right though).

Why, exactly, are Novarossis better than OS?..
