If you get on Fantoms site and option out a 6.5 like that, then yes it totals out to $170. All of those options are completely useless on a mod motor. If a 6.5 isn't enough put a 5.5 in your car. Sorry to say, but a $30 Trackstar 5.5 will have more power than that $170 Fantom 6.5

I was worried that this was going to be a valid point but then I saw the poster.

Sniff sniff you smell that? Someone got burned, and it ain't the motor.

The fact of the matter is your girlfriend is buying you something awesome for your birthday. I think he makes a valid point about mod motors but which would you rather have given to you from a loved one: a $30 Trackstar or a $170 Ion?

Exactly, and to me the price tag isn't what is so exciting but rather the quality of the motor and the rarity (obviously comes with price tag but you know what I mean)

How does the validity of the point have anything to do with the fact that I'm the one that posted it?

It's very nice of your girl to buy you a nice gift, but for what she spent you could have got a Fantom 5.5 (what would be an equally high quality motor, and still faster than a $170 6.5), a full set of tires for your D413, and an extra battery.

Ultimately, if you're happy and she's happy, that's all that matters. For my b-day last week, my girl picked up the tab on my weekly amain order. A big box of goodies will be here today.

What's funny is I spoke with Fantom today and they basically said the abec 7 bearings are more for on road cars and to stay with stick bearings so I deleted those and had already decided to go with a 6.5 haha. The validity statement was in terms of you being negative in a lot of your posts. My post was just sheer excitement about what my chick was doing, and you came in with unnecessary negativity.

Base price of the motor was 84.95 but there are add-ons you can get to improve performance.
