i have one and its pretty good, and has been quite reliable for me so far... i used it on my TC3, LOSI G+ and MR4TC-SD... and for modified and stock racing.

the number one advantage for me is its size, especially of the SD and probably for my upcoming R2 when electronics space is at a premium...

treat it as you would any other ESC, like mounting it with 2X double sided tape, being careful not to fraid the wires, etc...

another thing, it doesn't require schottky diodes... and be careful not to inter change the polarity of the wires...

I've got a couple myself, I am thoroughly happy with the performance of the speedo. One you thing you have to remember when if you get one, if it is not a tub chassis, a good hit may send the speedo into setup mode because of how you mount it to be able to get to the programming buttons, on the Yok SD, I use a small lexan shield to protect the buttons. Just a thought.

There is no reverse on the Zero V-Extreme because racers don't need no stink'n reverse!

it is by far the best speedo that I have ever run. I thought that it would be hard to beat the TC2 but boy was I wrong.
