http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=LXASX3**&P=ML much better and not much $$$

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=LXENN0**&P=ML even better and a few $$$ more

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXNHS3**&P=7 same as one before but fm, less interference, longer range

You can check out spektrum radios too: http://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/D...rodID=SPM20200

the stock transmitter is a piece a sh#t,mine broke within 2 tanks and neither Redcat or the ebay seller i got it from would honor the warranty,if i could do it all over again,i would not buy a Redcat!!!!!

redcat has to warranty it, there is a 30 day warranty on the radio equipment.

No man, it wasn't in the trunk. It was tied to his bumper with 10' of rope... Either that or it drove off the edge of a 100' cliff...

platinumchopper, I'm just playin, but that is definitely something we need to see to believe. Not many r/cs break 70mph, let alone Redcraps... lol

as far as redcat radios not working I didn't even try to drive my new hurricane pro with the stocker. trashed it for spektrum DX2.0 I found on ebay for $125 + $10 shipping so I wouldn't feel to jilted about your stock radio not working they are junk but $350 for 1/8 scale + all aluminum+$135 for new radio not bad IMO.
