i love mine....can't really give you a comparison to the m11 as i never had one.
i do know that it it is much lighter than then the m11. even more so if you replace the battery with a lipo. i love the size of the screen and the brightness of the backlight. if only my driving skills were on par with the radio....sigh

I've got a 3PM that I've been using for..oooh..7 years now. Why bother with a 2.4 radio? Me, you, and Skip are the only guys that will even be there with 75mhz FM.
weren't some people getting glitches from the cell phone tower last year ??

I had a broken receiver and it got wonky on the far end of the track, Jermaine's issue I think is more a Novak XXtra issue than anything else.

my 75mhz was super glitchy.... then i changed to a diff channel and it cleared up a bit, but 2.4 was well worth the investment for me.

i can't come in 5th in the b-main if i am glitching!!!!

Never had a probelm with the 75mhz or any glitches just looking to upgrade to an old favorite and wanted to see if anyone had pro or cons regarding the
M11 or M11x.

Seriously, is there going to be a decent Shortcourse 4WD following this year? I ask because I took a look at the Losi up at Hobbytown and it was love at first sight.

we where struggling to have 5 4wd sct's at the factory but this last weekend there was 11 running so couple that with the new losi and associated offerings and I am sure there will be a big group. I am going to get something to replace my 4wd slash since my stepson took it over so there will be 2 of us on wednesday nights

Shannon, I think we're going to have a few out there. I ended up picking up the TEN-SCTE we were looking at Friday (along with a slew of parts and a servo... still need to get an ESC, motor and batts). It's in pieces now. Well built and I can't wait to slap some SS City blocks on it and see how it does. I promised myself and the fiancee that I've bought all the cars I'm getting for this season at this point. One left at the shop as of yesterday.

At this rate, the TEN will be runnable before the DNX408, I'm waiting on a clutch for it and have spring sets en route.

Now if we could just get some cooperative weather!

Lucky dawg, that thing was pretty impressive. I think I will be picking one up before May. I was going to do it now but the dryer quit working last night so it will need to be fixed or replaced. It's always got to be something with old schleprock here.

Dryer is not a priority. Run some coated steel cable across the laundry room...it dries itself. A good dryer costs more than it'd cost to get the Ten-SCTE running
