Default ninja

I have always ran the stock ninja and loved the motor. I bought a tuned version and the first week the top fin on the magnesium head broke of and about the 3rd week a chunk of bearing broke off on the inner bearing and trashed the motor. Nothing like a 550.00 paper weight.There was not 200.00 worth of more power in the tuned version. Stick with the stock one.

This one sounds a bit more like the mission impossible motor. Works for a short time, then self-destructs!
