The speedos we shipped to distributers are the heavily updated Sphere Competition "2007 Edition" and their part-number remained 80700. You can recognise those by the white sticker on the packaging box. Attached is the supplementary manual for the "2007 Edition", which also explains the changes over the previous version.
If I run touring car only, should I wait for 80750 rather than buy 80700 2007 Edition? I only use 6 cells, not 4 cells and in the midst of transition between brushed and brushless.

Default Neo suggestions

Guys,
I am sure this has never been asked before but I am looking to get another Neo motor for my 12 mod needs. What seems to be the most popular? Doesn't have to be the carpet missle version (but the one that will get me in the main at Snowbirds ).

I have the original Sphere with the original Neo ONE (just "Neo", no Star #'s) motor and I have been quite pleased with it. My only comment is it's a bit soft in the drag brake profiles. I just installed a new Sphere Comp 80700 with this white sticker on the box, and feel like I should have a new motor to go with it.

Thanks!

@Adrian: I assume this is an outdoor track and that you run 4.5t (= 5*) with sintered magnet. Right?
If that is the case, a gearing of ~8.0:1 should be about right.

@YAH: better wait for the TC-Spec.
We do unfortunately have a short delay with it's release (2 weeks) because a component didn't make it in time. Shipments to distributors with TC-Spec speedos will leave mid of February.

@Slapmaster: go for the new X11 5.5t motor, perfect for 1/12!

@MoonTrap: sorry, must have missed that... how about if you read the manual first for a gearing recommendation?
I assume you use 6 cells. On a small track you should be in the range of ~10:1 while you can go up to 8.8:1 or so on big tracks.

The X11 5.5t will work fine with the GTB, that's not a problem.

Thanks for the reply burito.

the reason i hadn't read the manual, as i hadn't gotten the motor yet, as i wanted to make sure there was no problems running it on a GTB.

Thanks again

Hi guys, I am sorry, I know this is the wrong thread for this question But, I Have heard that useing a cap on the comp 2 is a good idea. Can you sugest a good capasitor size for 4 cell and 19 tun pan car oval ? Am I better off to stay small or should I go big? or is it not recomended for stock racing? Thanks, AL
