Default DX2.0 or DX3.0 is there a difference?

I know that one is the newer model and has a third channel. But I am just starting in racing. I was thinking of getting the Dx2.0 since it is alot cheaper but in the long run can I get parts and service if need be and does it have all the same adjustments.

I think they are both the new versions. As far as I know, the old version are the DX2 and DX3. DX3.0 has 4 model memory over 2 model memory for DX2.0, and is a 3 channel radio over 2 channels on the DX2.0. Also the DX3.0 has mixing if I'm not mistaken and some other nice and helpful features for racing.

As rbfive said the 2.0 does not have exponential settings. If you are going to be racing--especially any 2wd that is a huge feature to be missing. Between those two radios I would go for the 3.0 on that single feature alone.

if you really believe your gonna be serious about racing for a while you should get a dx3r if ya got the money. I had the dx3.0 and the brake is a mile away. Makes it more difficult to drive the car. I liked he dx3r when i tryed one.

Maybe get a used m11 ? Just saying that radio just kinda falls in the middle.

Why not just get a Futaba 3PM? It's got 10 model memory since it seems radios are measured by that number nowadays.
