The Cirrus is a great little speedo, well priced too. Comes with two power caps so you have the option of the small one or a big one and two schotty diodes which are needed. Plus plenty of wire. It also has the brightest blue led I've ever seen on a speedo

Since going to the 9550 servo I've moved my speedo around 90degrees from what Gaz's pic shows. I find it helps make the wires a little easier to make neat and you don't have sharp bends in the wire which can push on the speedo or make soldering tricky, since I hard wire my motors in. I probably don't change motor's nearly as often as Gaz though, I bet he has a good collection to choose from

Its the 6 cell battery strap for the Xray T1. I had one on my R1. He has prolly drilled a new hole to mount it sinse they are a little long for the stock holes. Mine was at an angle across the batteries and I didnt have to drill any holes.

Thanks,

The problem I'm facing is that you have to unscrew the org. bat. case on the bottom of the car because you can't get to the top screw because of the top deck.. or am I overlooking something here ?
