Like the new LRP Flow speedo but prefer red then try the Nosram Comet. Following two years of hard work and designed from scratch, the new Comet speedos are based on a completely new platform replacing the three popular Pearl Evo Version 2 speedos. Racers can use the Comet speedos for modified and stock racing, offering a multitude of setup options. Optimised cooling, extremely high power output over the entire RPM range and simple but flexible adjustability are only some of the highlights that make the new Nosram Comet speedos stand out. The unique software, a heavy copper 8-layer powerboard and the compact 2- piece machined aluminium housing have never been seen in a brushless competition speed control before. Its construction from thermo-conductive aluminium makes the case highly efficient for cooling.
