I have not have a chance to drive one or even know anyone that has but I've been through all types of engines in my revos and the RB 523 series of engines is by far the best I've come across imo. When they are tuned to kill they are hard to beat and they get pretty decent fuel mileage. I have a 150cc tank in mine and I get between 10 and 11 minutes a tank. If I had to pick a second choice I would say that the OS 18tz would be it followed by the Traxxas 3.3.
