i change all my stuff to deans plugs.

11.1 volts i think is a bit much for the venom,

i have not tried myself but i have a mini inferno buggy that i spent way to much money on,

11.1 volts i was beating the 1/8 nitro buggys down the straight no problem
( Mini Inferno is 1/16th)

Have a look on a few of the other threads here... there is a heap of info about different radios, I tried the Spektrum DX3S and no good what so ever, unable to mix Aux chanel fro brake, luckily the LHS swapped it for a DX3R, and I love it.... But it's all a personal preference....

As I said, check the other threads, alot of different opinions and prices, the bikes don't need really fast response, so all you realy need is a 3 chanel radio that is capable of mixing the throtle and the Aux (the aux being for the brake)
