Default Platinum Drake .21 Engine Good?

Cant find much on drake .21 engines. Anyone have this engine, know someone who does, or have seen it in action. Is this a good engine? Anyone have links to reviews? Its standard version.

These engines run awesome. Lots of power through the mid-range and very easy to drive. Runs incredibly with a Jammin' JP-1 pipe and header.

I got 10 minutes and 15 seconds of run time with my engine during the A-Main warm-up yesterday at the Nitro Challenge; be aware, however, that you will not get that kind of run time if your engine is too rich, as I found out...haha.

Thanks dude...that was a pretty emotional weekend for me. It was AWESOME to finish well at this race; that might've been the most competitive field for 1/8th scale buggy at a race held on U.S. soil...maybe ever.
