So you either need a fan blowing directly on the posts or a heat-sink made for attaching to the posts but that may not work since the heat-sink would have to take into account the crappy soldering job some people do lol

I like your heatsink on the solder posts idea... do you think there would be a drama dead shorting them though?

Fair enough, not something I've seen before, I was thinking of typical servo tape, & esc construction.

Is all this schadenfreude about something goofy that one guy did, or is this something the whole team did?

Now that I really give some thought to it, a heat sink on the terminals would short it out so that would not work.. I guess all you can do use a fan to blow on the terminals.

A Tekin speedo doesn't need a fan or extra cooling on top.
As already mentioned the solder post work as cooling and only there a fan will help.
Even when the track temp is high the speedo stays cool when using stock motors.
Fans will only be used with mod motors and even than not always.

As the Tekin speedo get's hot, you did something wrong.

Cannon/Senna, what was the point in bringing this to the public's attention? Shouldn't the focus be on why and how both SP and Tekin lost in the BL 11.5 class? Just seems like a childish act coming from you two.

What's really hilarious, is the fact that you participated in this deception and then snitched on those you helped.

Stop derailing this thread with TITC drivel. No pun intended, let's just focus on how to improve the products.

Fair comments from all. We all need to be informed of the good and the bad. A bit of bad publicity might get SP to work harder on developing new and better software.

Either Hobbywing,Fletta etc, based Hobbywing had same Problem,
Other Company such Losi Excelorin, and Castle Creation, also
had the same Problem, Firmware Damaged is unsolved yet.

as the LCD until now can't fix ESC Firmware Damage yet,..

Firmware Damage must have the solution first,
before latest Firmware is released.
