Whatever you think buddy. I bought a set of "Bose" looking earphones. LOOK exactly like the real thing. Do you want to buy them? I'll give you a good price!

KM and HPI are definately not the same but if that's what you got work with it
there are tons of parts you can choose from and most HPI parts will fit on the KM

I didn't buy my Baja for the radio. But I don't know what you're talking about; I see Rovan has a cheapo looking FM?? I got a toy like 2.4 GHz with my Baja...

Have fun buddy. I drive my RCs hard so I want them tuff. Enjoy yours how you like.

PS I still have piles of snow here too.

Haha. I won't run mine in the snow. I had a Blizzard for that. Traded it for my Baja 5B. I'm just wrenching in the winter anyway.
