I don't think you need to be to concerned with the radio so much as long as it has the usuall adjustments. What you should look at is getting good servos to go with that radio. 1/8 scale is big and fast this is where having a good steering servo, one with some torque, is nice. Just somthing to consider

any fm radio should be good

xs3 is really cool its like xr3 but has synthesized module and reciever so you never need crystals

but there are alot of good choices out there

if i could have any radio right now i think i would go for the 3pk since it is pcm which includes a failsafe feature

as soon as someone comes up with a full feature top of the line radio with synthesized module and reciever i will probably switch from my mars r

honestly though i only have the mars r on stage 2 of 4 because all the extra adjustments it has arent really needed
