Default Sportwerks .21??????? How are they?

How are the Sportwerks .21 engines for 1/8 buggy?
I am getting a used car with that motor and wanted to know if I should be looking for another motor or not.
I plan on racing.

Not a bad engine. Check it out it might be fine for a while. They lack on bottom a bit although run good with a jp3 or jp4. likely get about 7-8min a tank. modded you can get close to 9. yes tho racing you might want to look into a brand new budget mill like the bf
