Essentially, they are the same radio minus the Rapid Respnse feature. There are of course those little flashy bells and whistles like a bue LED pilot (on/off) light that is so bright, you can almost use it as a flashlight. This blue light is damn annoying when adjusting trims and the sort but there is a good reason it's there: When you're up on the driver's stand with the radio in your hands, the pilot light shines directly in the direction of the other drivers. When the race is on and the other drivers look in your direction, they'll be distracted by the light!!!

P.S.
Make sure you get the left corner spot in the stand so you can get all the other drivers looking at that darn pilot light.

Don't be fooled by anyone telling you that the high response system of the R is really noticable and makes you drive better...... I kill myself laughing every time I read this from someone!!!

yeah supposedly 50% quicker response time than the old marsbar radio. but if anyone says they noticed the speed difference on a 0.17sec or a 0.08sec servo .....THEY'RE LYING!

if you can get the rr at the same price as the original mars go with the rr though, better reale value if you ever fo sell it. the old mars with the orange highlights looks better though

Nah.....the "original" blue LED on the 2000R will do a much better job at blinding people.....

Blinds the hell out of me when I'm trying to adjust the TX!!!

I don't know...I can tell a difference between a .17 and a .08 servo. I can tell by how much I have to dial the speed down on the radio! But even if I couldn't tell, I wouldn't have any valid reason to say that NO ONE else can. I have the mars but the only reason I haven't gotten the R is because I don't want to spend a fortune replacing all of my receivers.

You don't need a KO failsafe to work on a KO radio. The Venom one works fine.

I don't know where exactly you can find them. Just hop on to www.venom-racing.com and you can probably find your answers there.

At least the Venom failsafe that I know will lock the throttle servo only if there is no signal from the Tx. The steering servo will still be free for you to steer the car. Also, when receiver pack battery is going to get weak, the Venom failsafe will lock the throttle.

When your receiver battery pack suddently dumps or connector gets bad and there's zero battery power from the receiver pack all of a sudden, only a throttle return spring will help you.
