from the looks of it, it is just the HPI mod with an ORION sticker slapped on it..

kinda EDGE'y

If this is tha case, the ELITE will be better, and the BigBlock will be better yet.

Elite is kinda sucky. It will last forever though. You just can't gear it correctly to get in the right powerband.

The Big Block is the motor of choice. That's all we used to race on a full scale track 50'x100'. 5 cell it was really fast, 6 cell you could catch a stock sedan at the end of the straightaway. Gear at about 11 or 12T.

Quite a long while. I'd venture to say 40-50 runs? I dunno. Even so, they are basically airplane motors. Speed 280 I think. Very cheap to get once you have the big block mounting hardware.
