M11 is heavy and the menu's suck. From the default info screen it's something like 5 or 6 clicks to even get to the change model screen. I couldn't stand my M11.

DX3R is an amazing radio. Go fondle one and you'll be sold.

I disagree with this statement. The DX3R looks and feels cheap. It is light, but that makes it feel like a toy. That and the fact that they use that cheap looking gray plastic makes it all seem like a cheap, not like a high end radio.

I was less than impressed with the DX3R

The weight issue I've talked with people about a few times. I think if you can get over the light = cheap then you can actually appreciate the radio.

I'm not a fan of the gray plastic or the stock wheel. But both of those can be fixed. www.tnt-fx.com can work wonders!

Like I said, the best thing to do is fondle them and see for yourself.

YES SIR!!!! Good eye there. Same exact size as the B4 shocks but with a nice bleeder cap and rebuildable lower cartridge. I love them!

Nice, I've been thinking about doing that to mine. I hate AE shocks, but love my Yoke shocks. Good to know they fit.

Thanks for the info.

Just swap out the orings and shafts for the B4 parts and you're golden.
