So I know I’m jet lagged (got home after 1:00am) trying to figure out the best way to connect everything.
I have a Futaba 7PXR with R334SBS-E receiver
Futaba GYC441 gyro.
Question is: I would like to use the Telemetry feature, everything I have read confuses me more! Do I use S-BUS2 for the gyro, or Castle Telemetry Link?

Tightened with red loctite, then added torque seal.
Installed some of the Scorched RC parts that showed up.

View attachment 138303 Please help me with something. It doesn't look like 'sticking to a tight budget is your problem. So, let's say I have a friend???? Who has the car/xlx2/motor? I, (I mean he) have replaced the front and rear shafts and upper and lower braces. Now, the spaceship you intend on building would require a budget just about as large as NASA's. I have been R/C'ing for a very long time. Long enough to know that the companies that last, not only must build quality products, but they must make money. So my main question is: What do you consider the most other 'must upgrade parts on your list? (I plan an upgrade on the center diff).

First off! (Don’t take this the wrong way) I work my ass off, and have worked for the same company for over 20 years. Before COVID-19 my Wife had a great job also! (Not anymore)
I think the most important parts for reliability on a speed run car is Scorched RC Pinocchio spool, front/rear axles, and diff locks front/rear.

Thank you and I am sorry if I came off the wrong way. But when I read the list you compiled and knew I had most of the core stuff but would have to limit the 'important' stuff somehow. I would definitely do the upgrades, if for nothing else, just the fun. But I have just retired and, although I am setup ok, I can't spend like I used to back in the Xray years.

No disparagement intended. I am here, because just like the rest of us, I want to share and learn.

Drive straight. -Dave

I take no offense, I just wanted you to know I have earned everything I have.

Well my airbrush blew up on me again!
Paint is pearl white outside, aluminum surrounding the pearl blue center. I’m not happy with it, next one I will use my new airbrush.

I switched to one of my automotive paint guns, but it was already ruined. The airbrush is over 25 years old, so I can’t be that upset.

I wanted high visibility on the asphalt road. Like my Wife said it’s not going to look good for long so don’t worry about it!
