Default traxxas 2.4

can you upgrade the radio to another manufacture and use the traxxas receiver? A buddy has the traxxas system but would like a better radio with more tuning options the receiver is fine though.

Not likely - these 2.4 systems are generally diff enough that they will not work with other brands. You'll need the matching rcvr that goes with the new 2.4 radio.

The diff brands use diff encoding/decoding so they only work with the rcvrs they are designed for. There are a few exceptions where a brand has made re-branded rcvrs for someone else, but TRX isn't one of them.

Thanks I was hoping that someone else made traxxas radios for them like losi and spektrum but no biggy he will just have to get a full setup.

Thats the one I was referring to and it's the only case I'm aware of and you can bet it doesn't happen any more.

Brands that have a race quality 2.4 system and a lower priced system - those don't interchange.
