Let me try to be more specific...
First off I'm a racer...not a basher and have been into RC for the past 15 years.
This is my first 4wd...(other than my BMI TC4)...so my concerns are durability along with space and heat issues (being so close to the motor).
The LRP V7.1 fits in the area provided but it makes the leads very short to the motor tabs. I'm leaning more towards a speedo with external solder tabs since the wires would have to be so short?
I cringe whenever I have to cut a 10" wire to to 1" because of space especially when the wires are factory soldered internally.
I will be racing anywhere from a 9 turn on up to a brushless.
I tried the GT7 in my stadium truck and it worked fine except for that tiny on/off switch...Novak really dropped the ball on that! For that reason alone (since it broke on me simply by turning it on and off) I will never buy another one. Give us a switch like the LRP V7.1's...a real switch!
I run a QC2 now in my sedan and love it but I don't know if it will hold up to the abuse of 4wd?...although you always see them in the magazines being used in the pro cars?
