Default Tachometer

Hi All,
Just wondering a bit now that I'm finally trusting my HT motor, and starting to cruise a bit faster.

I'm using a 44t BoyGoFast motor/ about 25mph, I start getting vibration and the motor is turning pretty good. I have absolutely no idea how fast it's turning, nor what the recommended RPM range is on these motors.

So I'm thinking a tach would not be a terrible addition as long as it's not going to be a pain or a load of money to install.

So please, point me in the right direction here...or at least tell me I'm not going to turn my motor into an explosive device by going faster than 25mph. I know I can turn the throttle open a lot more, but it's not going to stop me from over-revving, right?
