I have been using the Helios for some years now and really like it. I have recently been doing some testing with the Esprit and I must say that even though getting used to the feel of a stick radio has it's challenges, I like it too.
I think it is a matter of preference and feel. Your car may feel more responsive or twitchy with the stick radio especially if you have been using a wheel radio but perhaps this will work for you. If there is local track where you live, go and see if anyone there that may have either radio let you hold and get a feel for it and see if you can get some feedback from the drivers too.

I'm not anyone ask this question before. But for ST Balance, how can I actually change the setting on there?

I try going into ST Balance and try every button it stuck at 70% for both, anyways to change that number or it permanent like that?

Also for ST Travel = how much your servo can turn? or what does it do?
Can't seems to figure it out when I was playing with the car or the radio.

I'm trying to figure out is there a ways to make my steering turn more, maybe someone can help out. The car steering is center and trim is set correctly, wasn't sure how can I open the steering more to I can have more turn on the servo?

Does anyone know if the Aluminum steering wheel can be purchased without buying the whole radio system?

I guess I should have looked a little better... If a lot of people want this item why not offer it?

just turn your steering wheel full left, then use the switch on top of the steering wheel. if you push the switch to the left, it will make your steering increase, if you push it to the right it will decrease. do the same for full right.

"Yeah Racing" make one that is available at rcmart.com

it fits with the wheel extension on, HOWEVER the wheel cant be angled when it's put in the case. Also, it wont fit with a spektrum module left in the radio. I modified my helios so the spektrum antenna replaces the orig antenna, so the back of my spektrum is nice and flat. works a treat, fits in the case a treat.

The new case with the C2 won't allow you to leave the wheel angled either.
The first hard case, you kind of can leave angled, buuuut it would leave your radio vulnerable to damage if you happen to drop the case.

To get the 'yeah racing' case to fit with the wheel extension, I pulled the lid foam out, and flipped it around. it just pulls out and stuffs back in easily.

it fits. but like I said, not with a spektrum module in it. (unless you've done the mod I have)

the mod is very very easy to do. just a little fiddly!

I have use a muchmore and losi lipo with this radio, works fine, no trouble, and last a very long time. Futaba plugs fits, not too familar with M11 plug. The old Airtronics plug is supplied with the radio. If you use the muchmore lipo, watch out on the polarity, my was wired wrong.
