The Stupendous SSD IV

I bought 6 of these for my c7042 pb. You cannot beat the price point. I have not tried any other brand of wireless controllers and now i have no need. A very, very awsome product! Very smooth operation. Customer service if for some reason you need is unrivalled. Truspeed Rocks!

Many thanks for sharing your review Ken. It's been a pleasure to deal with you.

So good I bought another!

Having already bought two of the earlier version that plugged into an SCS transmitter box, I knew how good Truspeed controllers were.
A few months ago I splashed out on a version IV, complete now with sensitivity knob and transmitter/ batteries built in- so now properly wireless!
I can't recommend it too highly and have now bought a second one - worth every penny.

Thanks for sharing your review Tim. Always appreciated.

this is just awesome to run a car from anywhere on the track layout you get a different prospect and view so its never the same makes it so much more fun you have to invest in this you will never go back to being tied to one spot running your cars

Hi Pete. Thanks for taking the time to share your views from all the way over in the USA.

Awesome!! Highly recommended.

Wow what can I say, the main reason I bought 6 of these controllers for the advanced Scalextric powerbase is because I hated the wired cables and everyone running over each other during marshalling.
What I didn't expect was to set Lap records on my second lap with each car I tried. The spring control and sensitivity absolutely blows away the standard digital controllers, it has to be experienced to be understood. My best Lap has tumbled from 5.61 seconds to 4.99 seconds. It doesn't matter whether it's an LMP car , GT3 or V8 supercar....I have been able to shave at least 0.5 seconds off the best lap for each car using these controllers. How good is that? All I wanted was to go wireless but as a free bonus I got a performance upgrade across my whole fleet of cars. If you have Scalextric Digital you would be crazy not to get this controller. Just awesome...highly recommended.

So glad to hear they worked out well for you Alex. Many thanks for your review. Greatly appreciated.

Really good

I could not be more happy with these controllers. Git three of them 4 weeks ago and I am very satisfied with the feel and quality. Finally got rid of those annoying cables.

Thanks for sharing your feedback Teunis. Much appreciated.
