i love my Futaba 3PKS...its a 2.4ghz holds a bunch of car memorys. feels great in my hand and looks great too. super easy display menu as well. they run for about $300ish but you can find a used one on ebay for less than $200.

I vote for the Euros, great radio! It has every feature you'd ever need and then some, not to mention the radio has a great feel in the hand and personally Ko 2.4 is the best I've used hands down.

Nothing basic just a really good bang for the buc they have the same options u would find on any racer preffered radio
I myself use the M11X the MT4 is 1 step below it but has the same features Im not a fan of Ko ran the Helios for 4 seasons then went to Airtronics M11X hands down feels better for me

Futuba 4pk is another awesome radio

The M11-X has a lot of very interesting mixing features that you will honestly probably NEVER use unless a 1/5th scale is on your radar. The MT-4 does not, but it does offer telemetry. I prefer the M11-X because the throttle trigger/ steering wheel spacing has been burned into my subconscious and anything eles feels weird. It is also heavier than the MT-4. Again I expect to feel my radio in my hands. With the lipo in the M-11 it's perfect for me.
Both of these radio's are the F.H.S.S. 3 type which means they are the fastest radio's out of the box. You will swear it is reading your mind. There are two other options to make it even quicker. If your running digital servos turn on the high response system. Then if ya have the dough they offer the S.S.R. upgrade. You will need a S.S.R. receiver and servos...
