But sometimes things don't go as originally planned and there was a hardware improvement for SXX-SS V2 which we didn't want to leave out which results in the fact that a V1 can not easily be turned into a V2 anymore. Honestly the reason is not "extra sales" as we're aware this does not make SXX-SS V1 customers happy and that it would have been better for LRP if these speedos could all be easily updated!
There will be an official announcement coming from AE about SXX-SS V2 once it is available in the US as well.
I'm not here to defend ourselves, I'm not the official LRP or AE spokesperson anyway but I work in R&D and try to help during my free time.
Also look ad Tekin and see how they have someone that is there for the clubracer.
I now that other brands do the same. Tell your colleges how it works. Maybe they lurn some thing.
Look ad Tekin, GM, Speedpassion, Hoby wing, mamba and all other speedo's that are there that you can update.
LRP is to late to come with a speedo that you now can update your selve.
