I believe your experience is with the SXX SS V1 stock speedo, where I admit there were more problems then you guys are used with LRP products, but then please use the other threads for the stock related questions and leave this one for the modified questions.
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.
yes buy an other speedo again to be happy.
No thanks. I now that the Tekin speedo was there before the SPX and it is still there and still it is one of the fastest speedo's.
As I new than about Tekin, I would never bought a LRP.
And the problem is not so much in the mod class. The problem is with the stock class.
V2 is also to slow.
I had to battle to win my races till I got a GM. I improved my track record after 2 runs.
the gap to nr2 became bigger. No LRP driver was a match for me and I didn't lose a heat that year. Other drivers changed to GM and they came closer than they ever did with there LRP.
Now I run Tekin and the GM is the only speedo that can reach the same speeds as the Tekin in stock.
Now you say that the V2 is as fast as them and that you will be happy as we get one?
Buy an other speedo after the dissaster of V1?
Is it not better that the V1 users can change there speedo for a V2? And than not sending it in but just return it to the shop were they get a new one?
And how long will it be suported with updates? 1 year till the V3 is ready?
LRP never helped the club racer. You only sponsor the big guys for your name. They win with every speedo. Speedpassion is the fastest as we must believe the resulds. Reinard is champion and he uses the Speedpassion.
At the ETS with Hara, it was GM. GM showed that it is faster. There was no speedo ad that time that could match with the GM.
I win all the mod and stock races with my Tekin speedo so is that one the fastest?
Give all the LRP drivers an other speedo and they will not go slower.
I believe even that they go faster. Alle the LRP drivers that changed ad my club did, so not why all the other drivers that run LRP?
I started with LRP in the time that there was no brushless. I used it a lot and I loved the speedo's.
Now I'm done with LRP.
I use the LRP X12 5,5T and it is a good motor.
I use it and I'm happy with it, but I will never buy a speedo again from LRP.
I made a phone call to one of the LRP drivers ad my club and told him that he must buy a new speedo. as he want's to update it to V2.
He orderd a Tekin speedo right away. So again a driver switched.
As I'm right we have now 2 or 3 LRP drivers left ad my club.
A clubmember drove in to the water and his speedo died.
He send it to LRP and he got a new one.
An other club meber his speedo died in a race. He send it back and he got the reaction that he used it in the rain and that it was his own mistake.
He didn't get a new one. It cost him a lot of money to get a new one.
he bought his speedo in teh summer and he never drives as it rains or as the track is wet. It was summer and the temp was above the 25C. Not a cloud to see.
This is how LRP cares about the problems and solve them.
I got to hear that I did something wrong with the speedo because it died so much on me.
Open the box build it in and connect it to the lipo. put it on and notting. I did something wrong according to LRP. I build cars for clubmembers, change there setups, connect there speedo's and I test speedo's for them to find the best setup. I now what I am doing. I'm not a rookie in the electro class. I race for manny years now and I had a lot of speedo's and cars.
I field that LRP thinks that all the drivers that are only racing ad there club, are dom and that they will buy there new speedo again and again.
