I have always wondered why they a more pricey than
the other motors in the market and have always wanted
to find out if their price is backed up by performance.?
I dont think people would mind paying more for a motor
for as long as you get what you pay for. But I wonder if
this is another motor that is Over Rated.?
Pixie is overpriced. It is no faster in stock form than a STS unless you are a VERY skilled engine tuner. The sweet spot is tiny on the pixy and changes with the weather (well, most engines due, but this one is quite finicky). When not in the sweet spot it's a strong motor, but no stronger than your average race .12, probably even weaker than mr12 and sirio. Add to the fact that the pixy is much heavier than other .12's and you're better off saving your dough. I have one that is pretty fast, but only on a good day when I hit upon a good tune (and mine has been modified). I've raced other pixie's with my stock mr12 and walked away from them.
