This is what fustration will get you. I have spent just about $200 on speed controlers that are now useless. I am so fed up I just dropped $249 on a Novak 10.5 brushless system, and that should fix my problem. Hopefully.

Well we will see, I will post up when I try it out next week.

See this is a lesson to all - dont order things when you have had a couple of beers and are aggravated about your stuff not working properly.

Does your T4 have a graphite chassis? If it does, maybe it is causing a short and frying your speed control.

Thats a great thought that I will keep for future trouble shooting.

Its the Team Kit, not the Factory Team Kit - that I bought. So I dont have any of the graphite parts.

I didnt think it was worth the extra money, at the time. With my skill level of driving, the graphite parts wouldnt have made a difference any way.

What is your gearing with the Komoto Dragon? I doubt the gearing recommended in the manual is correct! We usually run a 19/87 gearing with the komoto in the T4. Also, what condition is the Komoto in. I know mine needs rebuilding after 6-10 runs.

I will have to bouble check when I get home from work.
It is either a 19 or 20 with an 87. The Komoto is new with in the past couple of weeks, and only had a couple of runs in the street, and one on the track. So it should be fine.

I need to get it to the hobby shop to have the amperage draw checked, just to make sure its ok.

I would bet it is the motor that is causing you the headaches. I personally had a motor fry two speedos in a row. The first one that went up in smoke just went full throttle and I had to cut the wires to stop it. I thought it was a fluke, that the speedo just went bad so I put another speedo in with the same motor and it got fried the same exact way. At first they wouldn't run the motor, then it just took off full throttle and smoked!
