Default Nosram-LRP what are the differences ?

Just wondering what are the differences in the Nosram and LRP Speedies ? I have heard that there are slight differences if so what are they ? Also should I run a power cap with my Dominator Evo, I run a cobalt 27t stock and have Factory team matched Nosram 3800 VTEC Fat boys? Any help guys thanks...

the same goes with KO and the Hara Twister 2.1 esc. they are both identical..
the KO sell for over $150+ and the Hara sell for as little as $133 at Tower..even less if you use the discount coupon code.

There is no difference it just another Label!
LRP and Nosram are 1 company!
Only LRP is in Europe and Nosram is in America!

Ollie,

That's what I thought before I moved to the US from Europe but it seems the average racer (I mean the one who does not spend his day on the internet ) has never heard about nosram here in the US... They looked at my Nosram speedo like it was from a third world country

This is from their website ( www.nosram.com ):
Company

NOSRAM was a UK based manufacturer, who dominated the European racing scene with advanced electronic speed controls in the late 80's and early 90's. The winning history of the state of the art NOSRAM speed controls was equal to other leading brands then. Some of the best RC-drivers in the world were using NOSRAM speed controls.


In early 2000, NOSRAM was taken over by LRP electronic, the world-wide leader in digital electronic speed controls. NOSRAM will now relaunch a complete line of R/C products, shortly starting with speed controls and more to follow soon.

Our trained engineers, supported by LRP staff, will ensure the highest product quality and development standards for all future NOSRAM products.

Currently we are building up a new world-wide NOSRAM distribution. Our products will be available through international distributors shortly.

For more information and distributor inquiries please contact

Nosram is not sold in the US. Racers that have them usually purchase them overseas..more likely from Asia. and US warrantee does not cover Nosram products.
