Default Which one should I use?

OK I got RockNmayhem's globe liner bought! Can't wait to see it! However, I already have my own plans ...looking at the paint job he did, if it looks as good in person, not touching it. The truck has no sound or lights, so we gotta fix that. I was planning on using my futaba 4 channel if I can. I know I can't if I go with an mfu, but I've been seeing a few videos of servonaut units and I like the sound. I know they are German, where I. The USA can I get them? Can I use a 4 channel or do I need more channels? Thanks fellas....

you can save a few $$$ and use this

here it is in mine

you need a y splitter for the throttle so the sound matches the movement of the truck

Thanks! Probably going to go with this one....I can use my own speedo it looks like? Do I need mechanical trims? Or will digital trims work?

I have the same unit in my Hayes and it works great. I bought the one without speakers because I had my own smaller ones. I have it hooked to a DX6i and it works just fine.

mine is sitting in the grand hauler up on the mfu tray and fits perfect.
i made a mistake in saying that you need a y-lead you
dont the esc plugs into the sound board. supermario pointed
that out to me on f/b.

as far as radios get as many channels as you can afford
i bought a dx6 and love it now they have the dx6i with sd card
i also have the dx9 that i got for the excavator and bound all
the trucks to that

Rcbrmin is not in the u.s., but I had no trouble ordering and received the sound and lights before my truck came. Haven't ordered the radio yet though. I actually was going to ask the forum if I can use digital trims or if I need mechanical.

Not sure, sorry, this was the first thing I ever ordered from them. I can tell you it came promptly and was well wrapped but I haven't been able to try it yet.

Here's one that I'm going to try because the price is right and looks good. He's got a youtube vid to check out as you scroll down. http://www.ebay.com/itm/201411995237...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Slamming the brakes is the only way to get the skidding sound.

Here is another site you can get the exact same unit as sold by RCbmin. It's a little more cash but I also see they've updated the speaker and now offer with a smaller speaker box.
