Just picked up a GTX. I'm a long time Novak user and I admit I was getting bored with the old "Team Orange" speedo's of the past. I was ready to go blue this time around untill I saw this thing up close. This is the coolest speedo I've ever seen. I'm diggin the translucent case, and tiny!!!!, this thing is tiny.

Good job Novak!!!!!

Steve, do you have any pics of the GTX mounted in a car? Preferably a TC3 but any car will do?

There is heat conductive tape..it is supplied with the Q2 heatsink kit. You can always cut a hole on top the the GT7 and place the Q2 heatsink.. or if a differenct color is desired..the Fut MC800 heatsink is black and Nostrom is red...

happy racin

RC and SD- The GT7 does not have an additional Heatsink available. The GTX comes with one pre-intalled and it can't really be removed easily. It mounts DIRECTLY to the mosfets not through the plastic of the case or another heatsinking plate. Replacment GTX heatsinks could be available someday, but not anytime soon.

Domo- Sorry no we don't. It's not really good for Soldering with. The insulation melts.

Dizzy- Fill out the form, send it in.

Thanks Guys.
