Racers take RTR motors out because most of'em are paper-weights.

It is easier to make a sport-level engine cheap and powerful with a little extra displacement..besides, most new hobbyists want a bigger engine just because it sounds cool.

Most of the race-inspired .12 engines will make just as much, or more, power than the cheaper sport-level .15's and rightfully so. Also, the more expensive engines usually have better fuel mileage as well.
