Jilles tested Speedpassion speedo and didnt like it. No power, especially after 3minutes.. No joke and I am not biased. This is a few weeks ago, but now he has signed to speedpassion, he probably has to say something different. Also german top drivers tested it and felt the same. They switched back to the GM witch is most likely the best speedo, only super big, heavy, ugly and hard to program...

But for real.. if your not a Pro.. you cant go wrong I think with the speedpassion.. it does the job.

No hard feelings speedpassion guys, only telling the opinion from the Pro's.

I guess that is so.
Remember every product that comes out will get improved on, just look at the changes the LRP speedos went through same goes for the Novak esc's
I do agree though that most club level racers wouldnt be able to tell the difference or gain any advantage.

Ding Ding Ding!!! this is the key here and the same goes for alot of the equipment that we keep comparing. most of the time th ebiggest factor is never taken into consideration, driver skill.

i personally think that the esc's can be comapred using the following criteria.

1. Reliability
2. Price
3. Product Support
4. Ease of use

performance is also important, but i think that considering these are the top of the range esc's we are comparing, the performance would all be very similar. which brings me to my next point, i am an average club racer and i have both the Novak GTB and the SP GT. i have run them back to back and the feel is almost identical. i will be swopping between the two till i am conviced that one can "outperform" the other. maybe by then, my skill level will be at a point where i can feel any advantage the ESC can give me.
