Default Fantom 21.5 motor

good.
Someone uses this motor and can you tell me if it's worth it?
In my circuit they mainly use the fleta motor. Fantom engine is more powerful?

Fantom motors are awesome, specially if you can afford the upgrades which are totally worth it!!

yes the fantom wurks edition motor is AMAZING! Great power, not too torquey but not dead either a really nice balance, with great speed.

for some reason i couldnt gear the motor to where it felt like it had punch/power, FOR ME!!! i paid 150 for 'the works' motor ended up buying a used team powers for less than 1/3 the price and loved it.

i also can say that i've seen guys have better luck with fantom motors. for me i've never been fantom guy. i went from trinity to now i'm a team powers, team scream, and possibly a SMC guy (to be determined this weekend)

Ultra rotor, ceramic bearings, lightened timing ring, have it dyno tested and set up for your class and track.

I put a 12.3 rotor in my RS to remove some of the low end grunt and it is now the fastest 17.5 at our track. You have to be sure to order for the correct usage. This is so understated by any motor mfg..

I have the highest end version of this motor ($155). All I can say is that I am not a very good racer, but on the straight away I was flying by everyone else. There is no doubt this motor is one of the fastest if not the fastest motor on the market right now.
