Default Sanwa m11x

Hi!
I just started onroad racing with my Tamiya M07, so I am pretty new to the hobby. I would like to ask for advice if itís worth buying a good condition Sanwa M11X with 2 receivers for around 150$ used in 2018? Is it too outdated or it will be enough for club racing?
Thank you!

I used to own an M11x back in maybe 2011? IMO the radio itself is still good for club racing today especially since you're starting out. $150 is a bit lower than half price of what I paid when it was new. And with 2 receivers i'd say its not that bad, depending on the condition.

If you will buy more receivers, Sanwa isn't the cheapest and that's why I'm using Futaba now. Honestly I can't feel the difference in speed between radios, for me it's more a preference of the feel in my hands and balance.

Thank you very much for your answer!

I used a M11X for the last 3 years, great transmitter. Just be sure the receivers are FH3's. The older FH2 receivers will work but they will be slower.

still a good radio by today's standards had one from 2012 and only in 2017 changed to an M12s. If you can, take advantage of the SSR function, but it depends on the receiver and servo you have if it is capable. Most drivers use SSR on the servo, for throttle, usually in SHR mode.

I think the M11x will still be good enough for club racing. I used the older M11 up until 2017 when I upgraded to a KO Propo EX-RR. The new radio is lighter but it did not help to reduce lap times.

I still use the M11X and place in A mains at large events. The only thing that is a negative about it is the other racers giving me crap over the size of it on the stand, lol. Still a very good radio.

Thank you to everyone for your replies! I finally decided to go with a brand new MT-4 with rx461 for 140$ as the m11x was already 8 years old and it had few damages on the outside. I know the MT-4 is only mid-level but I think it will satisfy all my needs as a beginner.
