    The speed checker is mostly a novelty item, but perhaps useful if you are wondering how fast the " speed " of the car is at the wheel.

    If you have access to a track, its far better to test on the track since there's other variables such as rollers and car settings that can affect the car.

    Yes, I understand. I was referring to using it as a preparation tool together with the circuit tests

    Thanks!!

    I have one and barely use it. I'm a decently experienced racer and if you have a track nearby it is best to just test there. If you would like to use it to test how fast your motors are (instead of the Giri app) you can, but it can be time consuming. Depending the way your car is set up it may not even fit on the tester properly.
