Fantom Motors...?

Does anybody run a Fantom motor...?

I was reading a little bit about them in the new issue of R/C Car mag.

Here's a few specs. on the new Fantom FR12.03R...

Horsepower:..... 1.3

It sounds like dynamite in a small package...!

Any opinions...?

Thumbs up fantom motor

yeah i have run the same motor here at the hobby shop.. It is a very quick motor. Lots of midrange to high power. I do recommend that motor...

Fantom motors have very good low-end punch and midrange but cannot hang with the italian based motors on a big track at high speeds....about like the o.s. TR
