title says it all... just a replacement for my junk slash radio, but I want an extra channel for something cool. (I'd really like a 4 channel.. but way too pricey)

I'm thinking an MX-3. Any thoughts?

What do you need 4 channels for?
The MX-3 is a great radio, holds the data for up to 10 vehicles and the receivers are priced well.

It will be money well spent.

Thanks, but that is a 2 channel. I need at least 3. I see they have a 3 channel receiver though.

Hmm I see the 3PM is 110, but its FM. The 3PMX is about 160, and its 2.4

Am I the only one who thinks it would be sick to turn on a police siren before you nerf, and pass another RC truck? haha

And I dont have channel mixing on mine.. they offer one that doesnt do that, so for me, i dont need 4 wheel steering etc. so it should be less than $150. the link is for the channel mixing version

You get what you pay for.
You would be shocked by how much of a difference a GOOD radio makes.

I use to think the same thing..."Radio doesnt make a dif" boy was i wrong. Its like adding nitrous to ur car.
