Yeah, the XR3 and XR2 models were pretty lame feeling once you'd felt an XR3i or an XS3. But in their day, it was a good case design. The menu system was basic, but it covered most everything you needed to race.

actually i felt it side by side with an XR2, and i really think the USED XR2 felt better.
what gives?
i seriously think all the old XR's i'd ever felt never felt that cheesy. i won't buy one until they come out with one based on the XR-i/XS cases

ORIGINAL: Speedmunkey
But, since you freely admit I'm right, you are now excused from further public humiliation.. =)
No hard feelings indeed, I just love arguing lol
lol, I see that you like to argue. Not to worry though no hard feelings from me either.

If we are arguing over radios, if I had the spare $$$, I'd get either a Futaba 7CAP on 75MHz or a 9CAP/9Z on 75MHz. Because they are both originally based on RC aircraft purposes, they have by far superior range...maybe 2-3 miles or more. When my 3PM gets low, I can get a whopping 100 feet before the failsafe takes over. Plus, I never really liked pistol grip radios and JR. Only reason I dislike JR is because I don't see many Futaba guys around here, and someone has to stick up for 'em! I have the 7CAP for the airplanes, and its serving me well, I have held a JR 9303 before, and I don't see what the "difference" is...the grip IMO is only slighty better to hold...plus, during RC, its mainly about the vehicle, not what the radio feels like, I would think.

the way the radio feels is critical.

yeeeeahhh...
dude, if i wanted a 2 stick with a neckstrap, i'd call your mo...er, wait, not appropriate
seriously though, if you've ever driven an RC car for over an hour straight, let alone as long as i have at any given time, you'd understand how important it is.

Okay, you got me there. The longest I've ever driven a RC car was 10 mins...then something goes wrong and I have to stop and fix it. [&o]

If I did, I'd buy one, and swap all the electronics into my new (old) XR3 case

speed munkey all radios are by law to accept interference from anything ex cordless phone, alarm systems, and etc. a cordless phone could interfere with this radio chances though are swlim to none since the spectrum runs off a guid system which reall makes it about a 4 million channel radio since it hops back and forth and different waves and frequencies it is the same thing used to direct missles and all so the chance will probably never happen but it can happen since the remote and reciever cannect 100 times every second but still room for interference
