Geez, Last month it was people crying about the black diamond ruining racing,,,, This month they'll be crying about the MMP. I hope Tekin gets their turn next month.

I guess the huge difference is the MMP is 130 bucks and isn't specially made for any one class. By the size you can see racing more than likely wasn't totally on their mind. Being a little bigger allowed them make a speedo that can run up to 6s lipo and in 1/8 buggies yet then be in a rock crawler to pure racing. Kinda of scary for the price. The new MMP has hit a market that covers such a huge range of customers.

Yeah, for soldering directly on the board, or anywhere there is already lead free solder, but for fresh solder jobs, lead solder is still the best.

In another few weeks I should have my mod Custom Works Sprint car done so then I can get alot more testing with 3.5 to 8.5 motors in the car. Might try a 10.5 as well just to see what I can get out the speedo and car with different motors. We normally run limited mod sprints with a 6.5 motor limit and roughly 2 times a year it is open and any brushless motor is ok.....man do they really get insanely fast then.

On are track the mod sprints might not run the fastest laptimes but they sure do rip down the straights!!!!!! Kinda like a rocket looking for a target.

I just noticed the the 1 cell controller said it will be shipping after Feb 15. When I placed my order it said that the controller would ship in January. I bought this in order to use for Snowbirds during the last week of January. Since it looks like I wont have the controller for Snowbirds is there a way I can cancel my order? I don't really want a $150 speedo that will be useless to me after Snowbirds.
