How did you burn it? If you've destroyed 2 speedos in 6 months, wouldn't you rather figure out why then to keep buying new ones?

you would have to go to a comp to support the 4.5 motor.

Rasmus, are you in the UK?
I'd definatly go for the MRT MX, awsome speedo. Far better than the quantum 2 I had. Its also cheaper, more reliable and got a better customer service.

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/MRT-Racing-Supplies

You can buy them from there or ring up MRT but i dont have the number with me, sorry.

If you've fried 2 in the last 6 months and you obviously don't use the warranty programs, I'd suggest a cheap used speedo.

Dont touch an Mtroniks if you want to avoid your ESC's blowing up. When I was using mine I think I got through about 4 on warranty. They're very good when it comes to customer support, and I got a speedo with a lower motor limit once, but it doesnt take away the fact that they die pretty often.

I agree with X2. You should get an MRT MX. I've had mine for almost a year (since they were released). It is very easy to use and I've had no problems whatsoever.
