What sort of temperature do the tc spec speedies and x11 4.5 motors like to run at because i have just ordered one.
Also gearing for a medium sort of track.

Bonded brake much easier! its like much much smoother braking!
With sintered you brake really agressive!

Have you run it with 6 cells as thats what i am running.
5 cells you think would be a lot cooler.

There would be a sticker on the face of the LRP box indicating it is the newer "2007" version.

I have two and both had stickers indicating such.

Don't see the sticker in the pics...So, it's not one.

I couldn't get a hold of a 2007 version until February...Buyer beware!

Read the differences on the LRP website. I believe there is a comparison sheet.

You can also check if it is 2007 edition , if it has 8 steps at punch program instead of 6 that sphere comp has , and if it has the temperature check ts toprogram!! After finishing your run , you push the throtle back ( brake) and shut the speedo off , after that , push the mode button at the speedo and turn it on. If the red led start to flash this is the temperature check program.

Everything above #7 flashes ( i think) it is ok , at #5 you have a TSD!! ( i think)

go to http://www.lrp-electronic.de/e/lis/

click on "speed control"
then click on the speedo you wish ( any brushless)
and at the left you will have to click on "techncal data" and you will notice the comparison sheet!!

Depends on YOUR situation.

My problem with doing that is I don't want anything but the latest technology in my cars. And I can afford doing that...LOL.
