so before adding tons of options, consider buying a good servo
prices in HK are unbeatable for servos, take a look on the Futaba or Ko Propo servos, they cost 60-90$ in HK, u will really notice a difference (more than adding red things)
a better radio system (FM/model memory/different setting) is interesting too
I own a Sanwa MX3, pretty cheap and has a lot of cool things like 5 models memory, 3 channel

good servos
futaba :9550 ($80)
Ko : 2125, 2143 ($90)

radios
KO EX1-R $185 (w/o wervo)

which batts, charger, motor and speedo do you own
it is better to spend more on stuff u can keep for a long time than buying cheap or useless things that u will change everyyear anyway .
hope this helps


I wish i will come back visit HK one day , have been there 3 years ago for a trip.....didn't have time to buy things for R/C
I used to come every year to Taiwan to see my friends and learn Mandarin .
but they don't like too much electric R/c there, they just have huge nitro tracks....

you don't have any specs abou it???
you really need a charger which can charge at at least 6A, especially if you own GP3300 .
one with an external power supply is better too .

Yep, definately get yourself a good peak detection charger, which are NiMh compatible.

A good charger will make run faster AND secure your pack a longer life.

This is THE option to have.

take a look at those:
LRP pulsar
Novak Millenium
Robitronic Pro2000
Eagle Racing CDC Ver6

all very good chargers, price range $120-140, need an external power supply

does someone know Ko and yokomo chargers?
are they good, at least they are not so expensive ($130)

The RobitronicPro2000 is replaced by the RobitronicPro2000Plus, which is replaced by the RobitronicExpert

The Expert got some features, which no one else got. According to Robitronic, it'll both give extra runtime AND voltage. The method is a 3-phase charge process, but it also got the usual linear charging method.

Sure. But if your current charger aint NiMh capable and it aint peak detection, then you'll ruin four packs pretty soon. Or even more...
