Looks like a 3pk on drugs.

The buttons on that look of poor quality.

Whoa, thats cool, and under the price of a top of the line radio nowadays? Should run less than $350. I hope it knows when your battery is dumping

Its an NON-FUNCTIONING PROTOTYPE, of course it looks bad.

cool idea being a two way system....but imagine how huge the manual to use it would be ....there is a piont were there is just too much to deal with and i think that might have just crossed that line..........of course i might still buy one

Cell phone technology? Does this mean I have to get a wireless plan to use it, and only race on nights and weekends when its free?

if they take away the terrible looks, and make it easy to use, i'd probably buy one. i wonder if it's digital synthesized? wouldn't making it have to do all that 'talking' back and forth make for slow response times? just a thought. nice idea, though.

I tested out early prototypes of this radio at my local track. The response time was very slow at the time, i dont know if they fixed it. The radio itself felt pretty good. I especially liked the screen location. They had progressive steering on it, kinda like they have on video games. The reciever on it was also quite large. Another good thing was that the battery on it could drain to almost nothing, and they signal still stayed strong. This testing was last summer, so things might have drastically changed.

My friend,(the one who wyd spoke of(rcchica)), informed me that it cost more than the 3pk, but she didnt know exactly how much.

Has anyone seen that new HiTec (I think) in the new RCCA....that one looks like it has a call phone in the top

This one on the other half...looks like the first radio with graphics that surpass the Super NES. A step into 32-bit driving....

Maybe they can implement force-feedback steering and video reception on the radio.

Imagine what you can do in the ladies locker room using this
