good buy! don't forget to get an extra battery tray and load it with rechargeble AA batts! the stock ones drink juice real fast.

I have personally run ONLY alkaline batteries since the mid 80's and can get 8+ full race days out of them. I have friends that still mess with rechargables and they always seem to be dead. Also I like the fact that alkalines put out more voltage and that = less glitching.

If anyone is interested in an M8, I got one for sale in the For Sale/Trade Forums. The link to the thread is in my signature.
