Thought I'd pass on my experience with them.
The instructions that came with all three of my 101's states they can handle a 23turn motor.
I carpet race, on a small indoor track (the size of a basketball court), so we gear low. None of the three 101's can handle my 27t Peak Racing RS24 .. they run it, but 9 times out of 10 cut out after about 4 1/2 minutes under race conditions (the 101's cut out and flash the LED when they overheat).
In reality, a speedy should be rated for maximum power, not minimum turns, as it is possible to get a 23 turn motor that outputs less power than a 27.
I replaced the 101 with a 2nd hand pc-nolimit and have had no problems since.
Do speedies make a difference and effect the level of performance of the motor? Most definetely: YES!
I put my old sports-tuned back in the car with the pc-nolimit and was with no other changes going a lap and half faster.
Similarly, a friend who ran the cheapest LRP AI speedy was consistently getting 21 - 22 laps at our track, and occasionally getting close to 23.
He bought the sphere competition, and with no other changes to his setup, bolted it in and got 24 laps first race.
I am still trying to understand why, I used to think it's just Volts and Amps .. it either works or it doesn't. I am currently trying to understand the way the top end speedies pulse the motor rather than delivering a constant current and voltage.
Hope this provokes thought
