Default LRP SPX, no 25years warranty anymore?

According to LRP website, under the SPX esc it is not written the 25 years warranty that LRP is famous for.... is this true?

Only the Sphere TC spec and Sphere 2007 pages that Ive noticed there is the "25years warranty" written but on the SPX Stock Spec page it is unavailable no where to be seen....

Why do you need 25 years of warranty?

As fast as new BL speedos keep coming out it would probably be better if LRP offered a 5 year upgrade program. Trade that old Sphere in towards a new SPX!!!

In 25 years our cars will need hover conversions to be competitive!!

Default LRP warranty in US

I would have been happy if they honored a 24 hour warranty...

I have nothing but trouble dealing with LRP service (US).

1st. 6 weeks to get one warranty return on a Sphere (a while back)

2nd. defective Sphere Comp 07, got 1/2 a pack in then tab broke....sent in certified mail....I had to call 2 weeks after received.....they wanted to charge me to replace.... spend $200 and then they wanted me to spend more....forget that...told them to shove it you know where.

never bought another LRP product since and I deter everyone from purchasing the brand at the LHS.

Yea it was lifetime warranty then went to 25 years warranty and now on the SPX not written at all

As expensive and quality their product is, they should upgrade their customer services and product repairing services.....like seriously

There are 25-year warranty cards inside the boxes my two SPXs came in.

This speedo's performance is outstanding with stock motors! I'm hooked!

I'm satisfied with LRP service - I got everything repaired (or mostly replaced), however it sometimes took little longer.

Default US Service

As I mentioned on my post US service sucks for LRP.

Overseas appears to be a different outcome.

be cautious of purchasing LRP speedo in the US>..

I'm not sponsored...etc..etc..just my experience with LRP.

During the 3 years I used them, I have only had positive results after sending a couple Quantum speedos back to LRP USA (via Associated). One time, they replaced a Quantum Comp 2 free even though I fessed up to having mis-wired it.

Have never had any issue with the LRP Sphere brushless speedos.

And I'm already a believer when it comes to the performance of the SPX's.
