    also, i believe 40Mhz is restricted use in the usa. if so, the radio would NEED to be changed.
    If its a carson, someone stateside should be able to get them.

    Carson Gas Devil or Smartech Titan, same sh#t different packet.
    Very difficult to get hop up parts for which is very frustrating !!!!
    Have a look at all the upgrades and mods I have done and this is what you will want and need to do to the gas devil to get any satisfaction from it.
    It all costs more money and you would realistically be better buying a Baja or an FG, you will get more value for money for your initial spend.
