V12, thanks for the help + answers.

Brant, we're looking for a US distributor but as V12 says currently we have on-line ordering direct from our website. Let me know if you want any more info on this.

SMcpot, as V12 says designed, developed and made in the UK. Our company aim is to make the best products specifically for competition use.

Bob, I'll resend the e-mail to you shortly.

Bob I can't find your email address (send it to me again pls?) so I sent you a PM with the ordering link. I've got an email from your friend Dan about ordering so I'll send the email and offer info to him.

Yes you can order 2 on the same order for you + a friend!

Default 4 Cell 19t esc/motor set-up

other than the manual's suggested settings for 19t which I'm going to guess @ being profiles more suited for 6 cell,

what are folk using for 4 Cell 19t racing with this esc?

Was running the MX Pro yesterday again for some practice with the 415 MSX and stock motor. Profile 1 and 2.
Also tried the MRT 12V soldering iron. No problem soldering the fat 12AWG wires on the motor.

Sorry if this question has already been asked but what is the most popular version, the one with connectors or the solder post type?
I am thinking about ordering one of these and was wondering- Thanks

Terry did you get my registration from the web site?


Cheers Bryan

From experience I would go with the solder posts and not the gold connectors, dirt can build up within the connectors leading to high resistance.

I think this is just personal preference. I choose the version with the solder post as this is lower resistance. Any connector even the best ones add resistance.
But some people want the connectors as for using in different cars they donīt have to solder the wires just pluging in the required ones.
This is the only difference anyway as the ESC is the same with both MX Pro versions.

Hi Bryan, sorry for the late reply. Yes I have your registration and your order thank you.

As V12 says solder posts are lower resistance but it's a trade off between performance and convenience. I know of many people who use connectors for their batteries, speedo and motor and still win at national level! The point John makes is worth bearing in mind, connectors do need to be looked after, they will wear eventually especially if you don't maintain the connectors (ie dirt and grit, lots of plugging in and unplugging etc) if you only unplug the connectors occasionally to switch the MX between cars and keep them clean they will be fine. The same applies to corally type connecotrs used on batteries, if they ever wear and become lose they need replacing!!!

We do offer the choice, many people prefer connectors because they're no good at soldering. As to which is the most popular, I'd say maybe solder posts but not by much it's virtually a 50/50 split.

Default MX Pro users comments

Some feedback from MX Pro users:

Well, since I started this thread more than a year ago I kept on waiting for the release (honestly, I bought another speedo in between because I really needed one). Now I have bought the mx pro and I'm impressed. The programs are working excellent, the size is perfect, it looks great and the soldering posts are very usefull, the setup is very easy.
Francis (Belgium)

I went on track two weeks ago for the first time with it. The first, and last time i'm ever using launch control with a mod motor! Pushed the throttle forward and the car literally spun itself out (start line is on a slight bend though). I can see that being a very big weapon in stock grid starts

Whats more, the punch and feel on track was just excellent, and guess what, my charger recharged my race pack minus 300mah. Yes really, instead of using just over 3000mah, they took in 2700mah. This is back to back, like I always do, nothing changed on the car, motor etc. I couldn't believe it. I've raced again last week and I noticed the same thing.

Speedo runs very cool, and it looks extremely nice in it's clear case!

Really well done with this, for the price it's a brilliant bit of kit.

Colin (UK)


I have to say the Team at Mrt have done an fantastic job The Mx relly does look the part but also preforms well. Alowing me to take 3rd over all in the indoor regional at york and nearly tq 2 rounds which had high hopes of putting me pole on the grid ahead of richard lowe and stuart wood but one small mistake cost me it. With me having this speedo it has enabled me to prefore and also given me the trust in the Mx that it wont blow up on me like Mtroniks which cost me so many races and many peopel are following in my foot steps and buying this speed controler

Big Well Done

Steven (UK)

Thanks for the great feedback!!

Hi guys,

I just thought I'd pop my head into this thread as I have just recieved my first MRT product from the new Australian Distributors of MRT Products, Harris R/C (www.harrisrc.com). I cannot wait to give it a go. Really impressed with the casing as you can just see for sure that this IS going to be waterproof. The switch is also good quality (same as the Novaks if I'm not mistaken but without the orange clippy thing) and the overall design of the unit is something to be proud of. I'm certainly looking forward to trying it out in the intense Australian heat in the coming week.

I'll be sure to let you know how I go. My comparison will be against what I had been using, which was a VFS-1. GO THE MRT!!!
