Regarding the problems of Brushless and LiPo etc fragmenting classes, it's something we're going to have to go through. Technology will always change and develop, things are forever changing in racing. We just have to hope the changes make for better racing with more people competing in the future.
I don't have an issue with the speedo, it is more on how narrow Losi chose to make that chassis. My GTX fits on it fine, just the way I have it on there the wire side actually over hangs the chassis. I will be investing in a micro receiver for it eventually for it totally over hangs the chassis. My only thought on the size was if these chassis's keep getting smaller there will be little room to put equipment on them.
