Considering the small size of the ESC though, thats pretty big.

Better than the one the GT7 came with anyway

I never had a problem with the GT7 overheating. I've been running them since they first came out. Infact, I still run one of the very first ones released. The only one that burnt up was the one you fried!

You can either have it on the outside so you can mount it anywhere you want or it goes inside the case and makes the footprint larger.

Good point. not to mention you can extend the wires-or shorten them-stupid easy to desolder and resolder. Get creative.

According to the Novak spec sheet, GT7 don't have Temp Protection, ergo they'll never switch off due to overheating.

(so when you see flames, yep its overheated )

The only time I've seen one go up in smoke was when Randy and I forgot to put a schotky on a 6 turn during a test session and he got about two laps in before it fried. I know he blew one of his own up that way too.

There were 3 GTX speedos run this past weekend at the ROAR paved oval nats. And the three guys that had them finished in the TOP 4 in MOD. This is a great speedo and it is very easy to set up and change profiles. The Power cap can be shoe gooed to the side of the speedo and it will be nicely out of the way.
