It's cheaper than a couple of it's competitors and if you bought one three or four years ago, you are still using it. Any other speedo and you would have bought at least two by now if you want to stay up front.

Expensive is the last thing I would call a Tekin. If you're going to call it anything in terms like that, I'd call it "money well spent."

I bought my first Tekin when the sphere was the hot ESC and still use that same ESC. I wonder how many ESC's the guys who owned spheres have gone through.

Ok - new word DECAL

I pronounce it DE-CAL but I was having a conference call with some Canadians who referred to it as a DECK-L. Took me a minute to figure out what they were referring to.

Best money I've ever spent. It ends up being cheaper in the long run.

One hard and fast rule is that "grammer" is actually spelled "grammar."

As for Tamiya, the "mi" is pronounced with a long "e" sound.

Seriously though, 15 years of racing has taught me cheap and good do not go in the same sentance.
indeed... sometimes investing in something pricey is worth it in the long run as opposed to buying something cheap that will just break down just as quickly.

its just a matter of buying the right stuff...
