Good Radio, i have the older version of it, love it.

Servos....don't spend a bunch, metal geared ones from HiTec are good and relitivly inexpensive, you don't need a ton of torque for steering that car.

Most importantly, i would stock up on suspension parts, arms, knuckles and stuff...and don't forget tires.

Ok Just bought the Futaba 3PM-X 3 Channel 2.4ghz Radio

also bought two Futaba S3152 digital servos spoke to the guy at the hobby shop told him I wanted the S3151 he did not have them so he sold me the 3152 for the same price. Fine but after reading Tower Hobbies discription little worried to much of a servo for my car what do u think?? Here is what Tower Hobbies said
-Current Drain: Futaba S3152 Servo is Specially Designed for High-
Torque and High-Speed, Therefore Very High Current Drain Is Normal
At Startup. For Ultimate Performance When Using This Servo
Please Review The Following Points.
(1) When Using Systems With the Battery Fail Safe Function it Has
a Higher Cut-Off Voltage Setting Which Will Cause Shorter
Operation Time.
(2) When Installing the Servo Please Check Pushrod Linkage To Make
Sure There Is No Binding in Order To Prevent Excessive Power
Consumption and Decrease the Life of the Motor and Battery.
