I need to get a transponder as I dont want to put a hole in my new body once I get it.
I'm using a Futuba 3PL 2.4g, yeah I know I can just fit a second receiver & program the controller to work both cars, BUT, I'd just be happier to just buy a 4PL for the 2nd car, it's only a few $100, that means I'd always have a spare controller at the track. The same goes with the transponder, they're only $140 so I'd rather just have one on each car rather than changing it over & risking damaging it.

Spoke to Jeff this afternoon about the chances of becoming a SpecR dealer, not very positive, but I must say, it took a little over 2 weeks to get my spares from TQ, I'll stick with that.

Got a full battery worth of practice in this afternoon, I can lap the TC track only backing off twice with the 21.5T, please try not to run me over on Friday night, I will have to get the 13.5T fitted before the January meeting.
