I have been using a GT7 since it came out, the one with the built in schottky. I use it in stock and 19T only though, to be safe. I have another GT7, that is one of the updated models with the external "P4 processor NASA datalink" as a schottky... but i dont like it as much... so i either run it in offroad, modified TC, or it stays in my pitbox as a spare. I ran TC2's prior to the GT7, and miss the on-board switch... other than that i have no issues/qualms with the GT7's, and they work flawlessly. I have however been staring at the KO VFS-1 speedo... the size and its features are amazing... AND you dont have to run a cap (from what im told)... so it is really small. But that sure is alot of bread to fork over for a speedie...

Tekin G11 hands down.
Super easy to program for what you want all on the face of the esc.
NO CAP NEEDED
NO SHOTKY NEEDED
FUSE protected.
Awesome performance and at a fair price for the features.

You have to run a cap AND the minimum double schottky diode on the VFS1. Still a great speedo though if you have the computer programmer. The handheld programmer works well if you use it in conjunction with the computer software. I currently run both the GTX and the VFS1 and prefer the GTX due to the plug and play compatibility. The secret to the VFS1 is the programming and once you figure that all out then it is top notch. Jst my .02....

GTB in brushed mode is very smooth. A little big though. I am going to try a Sphere comp next.

I really like my Hara Twister 2.1's. And yes you need a CAP. A diode I never ran in stock rubber class for months with no problems. 19T Foam sedan however I put the KO diode on to be safe because the ESC gets a touch warm.

Gee and I wonder why? I have to say I have GTX's in my onroad cars and GT7's in my off road stuff and like them both. The only reason I have GT7's in the offroad stuff is they have not caused me any problems and I am not one to upgrade just for the sake of upgrading. I needed stuff for the onroad and the GT7's were a bit to big imo for the cars I had. You can't go wrong either with Novak's warranty/replacement program!!

AH! And this is why these forums exist... There are a few locals that run the KO speedie and DONT use the cap or the diode... are the consequences the same as it would be for any other speedie required to run them? The KO with a cap is close in size to my GT7... i agree with not upgrading for the sake of upgrading... so are there any real benefits other than the tunability of the KO?
