Default Kinetic Meltdown

Well, this is was second week running the Kinetic speed control in my sedan and while I was taking a few practice laps the thing caught fire spewing out large flames and a ton of smoke...I cant figure out why this happened considering last race week I was running the exact setup with temps in the range of 140-150. I was running a LRP 13.5 with advanced timing set to 6.. I have no clue why this occurred, I've been running Novak speedcontrols for the past 15 years, from the DUSTER, CYCLONE, GTX, GTB with no problems. I've followed all the recommended setup procedures in the manual and what has been mentioned on here by the Novak Tech Admin.

A little bit of insight on the cause of this would be great, has anyone else encountered such an issue?

Luckily nothing else was destroyed... Strange.
