Default ANTI DRAG RING ?? Worth it?

I came across this +200 to 300 RPM Anti Drag Ring HPI FG Baja Losi Zenoah Fuelie CY RCMK Gas Engine | eBay

How's does this work? Is it worth it to get 200-300 extra Rpms?

Going in my hpi baja

Thanks

I'be used them on my marine motors but did not notice anything. Just another place for air to leak.
