I dont know for sure he lives on east coast and I live on the west coast so in fairness it could be user error.

The Speed T is a spool isn't it? Not a ball diff right?

It's not a ball diff, it's a plastic spool....

If you dont adjust the diff correctly, you could burn out a diff with a stock motor. (happen to me)

the whole speed run things is very disheartening IMO. after the 1st few runs it doesnt have that reward anymore. then again thats just me

any tracks near u that u could check to see what people prefer?

Your DX3R radio IS backwards compatible with the stock Rx, so you can use the same transmitter as your other vehicles.....

Sorry Jay..my typo there...The DX3R works with all Spektrum Rx's. I was thinking of the DSM2 Rx itself that is not compatible with any other radio, except the DX3R.
