    Measure speed?

    Is there a way to measure the speed accurately of my Slash 4x4?

    +1 Wakesurfer98,
    Cheapo GPS zip tied to the chassis. Close for me and my P4DE.

    I picked up an old Magellan eXplorist 210 at a local pawn shop for 50 bucks. Cheap enough for me at the time. I cant bring myself to strap my iphone 4 to anything I'm gonna be driving. I ain't that good.
