Default Fantom engines, Sirio .18 engine ??


How many of you have tried/bought a Fantom engine (any) and what are your thoughts/experiences with them. Power, reliability, tuning. I would like to try something different in my Super Nitro this time and the Fantom .15's look interesting.
The Sirio .18 Maxx engine interests me too, but I'm not sure if the HPI 2spd clutchbell can be adapted to fit the Sirio crankshaft.

I ran a Fantom .12R (side exhaust) in my NTC3 last year.
Very reliable and easy to tune, fired up every time.

It lacked on the power a little bit, but they have now redesigned it a bit, as well are now offering a rear exhaust.

They are great value for the money.
