Default 1/8 scale on road radio setup

So I used to race in the midwest. 1/8th scale on road and I used to do pretty well.

I want to get back into racing. The last time I raced was 2000. So I need some help.

The Radios I am looking at are the Airtronics M11X, and the DX3R.

So any problems with these radio's?
What servo's do you guys think I should use?
Looking at running Lipo for the Receiver.

I took a look at the Futaba BLS451.
Is there a better Futaba for steering or T/B
What other servos

Looking forward to any advice you all can give. I been gone so long its all new to me.

Thanks

Both radios are fantastic, Ive seen the M11X in person and there is nothing wrong with it (apart from its chunky look IMO)
As for the steering servo, as long as it is digital, put out around 100 oz-in or more torque and goes faster than 0.14 seconds, then it is good. For a throttle, you don't need a lot of torque, more speed (<0.10s)

I have had a couple M11 radios, and to me, they can get heavy during a long main. Great radios, dont get me wrong, but it the weight over a long main that is its downfall. I now use the KO helios radio, lipo battery, drop down wheel, and could not be happier with it. When I used the M11 radio, I also used the Airtronic servos, but have switched over to Futaba servos, and some good JR servos. I only run 1/8th on-road, and have had great results with this set-up
