The new G11 Pro is Tekin's new speedo. New circuitry that allows you to change the frequencies at different steps. Most of all, it RIPS.

If size is any consideration even with the external capacitor the GTX is smaller than a Tekin. As far as performance goes, the GTX just won the Reedy race (most recent) and prior to it has won More races than any other speedo out.

Cuffs-I used to love ya..but I have to kill you...(GnR).. the picture shows that with the capacitor on it's side it is the same size as the Tekin...but you can as I do, mount the cap on top. It's all how you look it a it...You run for Tekin and I run for Novak, so I venture to guess our opinions are slightly biased!

Oh and heavier is better...it means it was built using more go fast juice!

Butter - Xray goes through the trouble of moving the layshaft down from the 04 to the 05 to get a nice low CG and there you go stacking stuff up on the chassis. Low CG bro, low CG!

I ran both Tekin G10 pro and GT-7.

No way to compare. Tekin g10-pro is much more better than GT-7 in term of everything. But GtX, not known.

I will have to agree with Cuffs on this one. I have ran the GTX and the G-10+. I definitly like the Tekin much better. This is why(more adjustments, easier setup, and easier to adjust and it also has a self check system)And as far as size is concerned. Cuffs runs corrally and I run Xray. Both of them are a little short on room for electronics. We both have no problem fitting it in the car. But then again my opinion might be a little bias. LOL

Customer service for both companys are probably a tie. They both support there products very well.
