He was talking about calibrating it, which is easy.
actually programming it is pretty easy too, just read over the manual a couple times, its pretty simple.

Does anybody know the differance between the 3Racing shocks and TheToyz shocks? Both are threaded alum and both are 50mm in size. Both are the same price on Thetoyz.com at $24.99 a set but TheToyz ones are instock the 3Racings are not. Im planning to order a couple of items and would like to get everything at one time.

Heres links to the said shocks:

TheToys shocks = http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...8705&cat_name=

3Racing shocks = http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...8770&cat_name=

Also I have had this problem with my steering. When I straighten out the trim later I have to adjust it somewhere else later. Its extremely annoying and if i go brushless this will be a serious problem.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Dont forget about him but,

How is that orion battery? I saw one at my lhs but I have always used the elite packs from cheap battery packs. Thay are 100mah apart but I think they would put out the same performance.
