    Let your budget decide. I think each model is a worthwhile upgrade from the one below. However I also think buying the base and upgrading as you go is more fun. But it’s cheaper to buy in at the Ultimate level than to build an Ultimate from a lower model. The exception to this is the Platinum - if you KNOW you want an aftermarket radio then it’s the way to go, because in all the others you are buying a radio that you know will immediately replace.

    If I bought the platinum slash couldn’t I just buy a extra receiver for it and use my x maxx controller. Being ill never run them at the same time.

    If you want to build from scratch check out "Xtions" on ebay. They have custom black dyed chassis and parts and if you message them, they can custom build whatever you want
