Default Quick Question....

Hey guys...I recently came into some money and am looking to get a "real" radio. I'm rockin' the MX-3 now, but I want a full blown radio now.

I'm looking at the EX-10 Helios, M8/11, 3PK

If it's been asked before, I apologize...but among those 3 which would yall buy?

Thanks!!

"Cheapest" option would be to get the M8 transmitter (180 from ultimatehobbies) and the Spektrum system. Less than 350 for an awesome radio setup. Unless you must have the latest and "greatest," I'd go with that.

I am leaning toward the M8 simply because...you walk down pretty much any pit in AMERICA and 9/10 radios will be the M8. Pretty much every factory driver is rockin the M8. They're easy to use/set-up.....I think I'll go with that.

Why don't you stick with what you got and save your money for other stuff? The MX-3 has lots of features and 3 car memory. What do you need that it doesn't have?

Mainly the balance the nicer radios have....I'm tired of the offset!! There's a handfull more features the M8 and others have over mine. The nicer radios have a smoother wheel feel....My radio is really the last thing I wish to upgrade.
