I am looking to buy one of these radios to use with an AWD 020 chassis but the radio has a spectrum module. Can I run it with mini z or do I need to buy a dedicated module? If so perhaps I am better off buying a new radio!
Thanks in advance

You'll need the right Mini-Z module, about $70 new.

Great thanks. 901 or 902? I will be running both 2wd and the latest 020 awd mini z's

for the EX-10 Helios you want the 901sm module. the 902sm Module is for the Eurus Radio only.

PN racing now offers boards for MR02 and MR03 cars that are DSM2 boards.

the spektrum module won't work with the PN boards, it's only DSM and the new boards are DSM2.

Thank you Brian, I was thinking backwards. I forgot that the older modules were dsm, not dsm2. Wasnt thinking for a minute.

That's really helpful thanks guys. Also great news cos I have a dx3c :-) so will get a board. Will they boards be ok in the 020 awd chassis ? Sorry but not sure is 02 means 020!

Yes the board will work in an awd.
Just get the one for an 02 not 03.
Mr02 is a 2wd

Why?
They are both 2wd and should both be working.
You can run with 03 board in AWD.

Either should work, as the board doesn't care if the car is 2 or 4 wheel drive. I think the board dimensions for proper fit in the chassis is what matters and I think Chad is saying the 02 PN board will fit better in the AWD than the 03 PN board. I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong.

I think both boards are the same size.
And in a AWD there is more than enough space for brushed boards.
But if he would try kyosho's brushless that migh be a different story.

But maybe he explain what he means later

Just bought a monster beetle mini z as I always wanted one and could never find one but someone on here pointed me to eBay France and voila!
Anyways gonna run the spektrum module in that for now, hopefully should fit ok

Are the new Airtronics radios DSM2?
