Question Changing AM to 2.4

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Since I am new to this stuff I am asking what are maybe some basic questions. On my old Traxxas Rustler (a basher that was given to me) can I switch out the old AM receiver with a Losi Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Radio and receiver? There may be one of these available but I am wondering if there will be any issues with the difference in size of the vehicles or problems with the steering servo (Futuba S3004) or esc (Futuba MC230CR). Then there is the problem with the steering being backwards - still have not figured out how to fix that

Re: Changing AM to 2.4

The only issue you might have is the plug in tabs but probably not. Most 2.4 systems have a steering reverse switch or option in its digital settings.
