Default Stealth vs GFX

In your honest opinion is it worth the extra money for the GFX?
I have seen numerous Stealths going for the 225-250 range as opposed to the GFX for 350 to 400.

I am on a budget and selling off old cars, items around the house etc to buy one or the other. It would be alot easier and quicker to buy a stealth as opposed to the extra 150 or so to get the GFX.

I am just curious as to whether it is really worth the extra or is the Stealth still more than enough?
I currently am using a Pulsar as only charger and one friend told me just to get another Pulsar but you know how it is when you really want a Turbo lol.

Really wanting it for the discharge, battery maintenance, motor run-ins etc.
Just dont know whether to hold out or go ahead for the Stealth.

To be honest the GFX is awsome. But your on a budget. And the T35STealth is still kick ass. The only thing u really will miss out on is a flashy display, kool controls and on screen graphing(they also upped the motor amp rating and has a delay timer). The basics are there with both chargers:
-motor run in
-charge
-dischage(up 35amps)
-cycling(matching abilities)
-charge profiles

The rest is refinement.

Check the 2 out:
STEALTH

GFX

new92,

I really miss my stealth, it would not be an issue to have the stealth over GFX. Joel mentioned exactly what the differences are and they are not anything to think about. I had a stealth and bought a GFX and to me haven't used the delay timer and I don't think the higher motor amps to me is not a big deal.

You will love the stealth.....

I know I did.

Agreed.
Thanks on the responses. I ended up buying a GFX off of a guy that had only had it for a month when he got picked up by a nitro company so was giving on road a break.

I had just sold my XBox and some games so the money was there so I just passed it along lol.

But thanks again for all of the help. If I hadnt had this chance I would have more than likely just gone for the Stealth.

Good call...the biggest difference I've found between my Stealth and GFX is that the GFX presents more information in a more intuitive layout....much easier to setup and use...

Don't forget about the on the fly changing of settings...
Motor volts & Charge amps

Plus, the GFX has the REAL-TIME monitoring.

The stealth is still a great charger.

Just curious, which "stealth" are we talking about? I know the Nosram (where amps can be changed during charging), but I'm not aware of others...

Thanks.
