i put one in my rockbuster with a 17 turn. the hardest part is gearing. the spur is metric pitch. you have to use tamiya pinions. i have not checked yet if you can change the spur.

i dunno bout those winds. the XRS is only rated down to 19T.

i wouldnt say much good about this speedo... i gets hot and shuts off in both my F201 and my Tamiya Mini, both running monster stock motors.

Actually, the XRS is rated for 15+ turns.
I use an XRS in my Mini-T without any problems.

I agree. You'll probably want to research the higher-end ESC's. I use a Quantum Pro in my TC3 and it's great.

If I'm not mistaken, the spur mount is like a TA04 - 2 screws?

If yes then its a "standard" spur, you can put any spurgear you like on there - any of the 48dp (say around 80-87 teeth) or 64dp.

Works just fine in my TLT-1 with a 540, though, there's no abundance of power ripping through the ESC.

Gee, sure didn't stop you from selling it to me.

Seriously, as I said above, it's fine for the application I'm using it in.

I don't think it's raceworthy, by any means. I have it in my daughter's micro-monster truck. It's plenty for her, but...

Don't get me wrong, I love Novak products. I just don't think this one's a good choice for racing, or bashing, for that matter.

Rob for your applacation the XRS is fine it would be great for micro,mini-t but for any racing for 1/10 scale I personally would suggest something else.
