Sorry for a newbie question, but what is so bad about the controllers in Traxxas products?

I just bought my first RC about a week ago, Traxxas Revo, and having no other controllers to compare it to mine seems to work just fine.

Like I said though, I have nothing to compare it to.

It's not that they work bad but that they lack features that they really should have.If you are going to do any racing a steering dual rate function is pretty much mandatory-most radio companies very cheapest systems have this.And any nitro powered vehicle should have servo endpoint adjustments.They are all 27mhz(only 6 freqs. available)and am.The radios included in pretty much all other RTR's are better and the ones Losi uses are far better.

Hi every one! I was just searching the web for RC and find the Traxxas home page.
I look at the JATO video and just loved it! So I order it from Tower (the lower price I could find).

It Said "early may" but I don't know exacly when is that.
I like off road in general, I live in Mexico near to a very big dune area (biger than glamis) so I just wondering if the Jato will do it in the dunes, what do you think guys?

the shift is wheither the radio uses the channels above or below the frequency. some radios have an up shift which means they use the 2 or 3 microfrequencies right above the main frequencey. and others have a down shift which means they use the 2-3 microfrequenceies right below the main frequency. all am radio's use upshift. on fm hitec and Futaba radios have a down shift. airtronics jr and ko use up shift.

Bwahaha.. Guess you'll be the first few to get it, eh? Just take it easy for a few days until your hobby shop starts getting some replacement parts for it.

Default finally!

Finaly I've recived my jato yesterday afternoon, and I spend the night trying to start the engine, as you must know I've never had a r/c so it was really frustaning for me. finaly after figuring out all the problems the engine starts! it was really exciting for me after days of waiting and hours trying hear the veemveemveemvem!
at this point it was 12 am and I procced with the break in I reach the 3rd gas tank, I was was amazed with the perfomance this far and I haven't pass the 1/2 throttle and went to sleep.
in the next day I went to work (I'm a used car dealer) and I was despred to continue with the break in I was for the 4th tank, finally I taste the FULL THROTTLE! I finished with the 4th tank and the then it happend...
I lost the EZ-starter! now I will have to wait again cuz I live in mexico and we don't have hobby stores here in my town, all my neightboors were excited with the jato and so do I, well I'll have to wait, again...

Anyone else has one? I need to hear more opinions because I'm going to get a nitro off-roader in about a week or so...saw the Jato in the display at Mike's Hobby Store here in Dallas and it looks kind of small. I might end up with the Revo or the Jammin' X1 if this truck's not up to my expectations.

...I think I'm going to get a Revo. Looks like it's going to be more of a basher.
