Cherry I usally agree with you when it comes to brushless systems advantages over a brushed system but when you start defending bad customer service and try to pass of bad experiences to the end user then you loose a lot of credibility. + whats with you and your obsession with Eddie?

Defending LRP is one thing but for you to imply that the Original poster should have waited longer when he already stated he had done that for over 2 months is ridiculous.

There is an obvious problem when you have to wait 1/4 of the year and still have no guarantees of getting your Speedo fixed.

That obvious problem ?

Is they will sell out in a matter of days again ...
Why ?

Because the Lrp 2007 Competition is the best performing and most durable Brushless controller available.....

NOVAK RUUUUUUUUUUUUULS

i give credit to american companies. they really handle service/warranty issues very well.

whereas european and asian companies for the most part is non existant.

i read stories about LRP and also saw Novak employees (charlie) posting here on rctech, and that made up my mind to choose novak. Luckily i have not had any issues with my brushless system, but i know if i did novak would look after me.

I'd be interested to know how many of the next shipment are actually going to be used for warranty replacement from last shipment...

Sales and quality don't alway go hand in hand. Since you have such a good relationship with LRP customer service why don't you offer to help on how you get yours fixed by lrp in a timely manner.

Because not only is their designated US customer service organization incompetent (best case) or corrupt/dishonest(worst case...but as likely) but apparently their marketers/sales forecasters are incompetent as well.

Anything that they know will sell out in days needs to be priced higher or more of them made/imported. Walking away from loot otherwise--and you know THAT ain't the plan.

After my experience with one "waterproof QC2" & itís "Life Time warranty" and with Reto Koenig explanations I havenít bought a single thing from LRP since then.

Regrettable my fears concerns also Nosram brand.

All these speedos that are going bad....... I wonder? Is any one running LRP motors that are designed for that Speedo?
When I ran a NEO motor the rotor started slipping and so I switched to the so called (Novak compatible) motor and the darn thing burnt up a 4300 and as well another racer at the track.
And then the speedo never performed very well after that.
I'm just wondering if there is any hick ups to running hot motors that were not designed for that speedo?
I know you can run a 4300 with out the thermal protection kicking in.
And a 4300 with the GTB will shut off before the motor smokes.

I have run an LRP X11 4.5, a Novak 5800 (bonded and sintered), and 13.5 (sintered) with my LRP Sphere Comp 2007 with no problems.

I'm not sure whether this answers your question, but Novak BL ESCs and motors have motor thermal overload circuitry built-in.

So, as long as you use them together, the motor is protected. Other companies do not include this protection, which is why you can see motors thermal with other BL controllers.

Does it do no harm, whatsoever, to have your Novak motor or esc initiate thermal protection? Does reliance on this lead to excessive heating and failure of components? If I'm not mistaken, it seems the brushless crowd seems to talk often of thermalling. Is this abuse of the equipment?
