I've ran spektrum in my M8 the last year. 1/8 buggy, gas truck, mod truck, 4 wheel buggy, 1/12 scale. No problems. I did recently buy the spektrum capacitors for the elec cars for running mod. They are about 5 bux a piece.

If you're talking about the SPM 1600 Voltage protector, that's used in a few instances. It's reccomend if you have a BEC that has a lower output or at times if you're running 4-cell. I use on in my Mini LST with a Tekin Brushless and it cleared up the BEC issues I was having. That is the only vehicle I run the Voltage Protector in, and I run my Spektrum receivers in my:
JRX-S (2)
Mini LST
Sportwerks Mayhem
Sportwerks Mayhem ST

Tabushi, I had a 3PDF a few years ago. If memory serves, everything the 3PDF had, the DX3 has feature wise, plus it's Spektrum!
