Default Buying new radio

I'm gonna get a Futaba 3PM for the mbx5r. Any suggestions on what servos to get for the steering and engine? Also, should I get a receiver pack?

Don't use 4 AA's to power your servos, and get something with around 170 oz for steering, and something like 80 or 90 oz for throttle, more if you want better brakes.

I use the DS1313 for steering, and Z590M for throttle, and I have crazy-strong brakes.

Yes, you should buy some kind of pack. They have them for cheap, so get yourself one of those or build your own like I did with AAs.
