It looks black to me, and they change things so often, who knows. It could be an older version. I've only had experience with the hyper .21 8 port. (Purple head.) While some complained, I never had a problem. I'd put another one in a buggy anyday.
That one looks to be on their cheaper side, so I'd guess not as many ports. Not sure if your racing or bashing. If it has good compression and runs good, run it. For bashing, it should move that buggy around just fine.
You're not having fun until you break it.
