don't forget your motor diode, helps keep ESC's alive especially when you are using low turn modified motors. I am also not a big fan of mounting motor caps in anyway other than soldering them.

just my $.02

First, it was on EBAY which means that people just hadnt bid much on it. Secondly, I won an Mtroniks speedo NIB on ebay today - I am going to ask the guy if he will just let me pay the listing fee and not buy the speedo.... but... o well... it was only $35 so it isnt the end of the world.

BTW, I have had LRP, Novak, Tekin, and Mtroniks speedos - and never fried any... plus im only running stock...And LosiXXX, do you race competitively? You mentioned a novak low end speedo - I would be using a higher end cyclone or atom. The gt7 is out of my $$$$. Just letting you guys know.

well ive run pretty much just novak till this summer.
GT7 is by far the best esc ive ever owned, its so smooth and has a little agression to it that i really liked, i used to own two till i blew one up messin around out side when me and a friend were testing out my virgan pro4. i mean the only reason it blew was that my friend hit the breaks and locked the oneway up and fliped her into the ditch were some recent rain water was sittingbut my friend sent it in kept it and we did a switch and now i own 1 gt7 and a Keyance Zero Extream, that esc as well is money well spent. i give a good 10-10 for both esc's
