Default can a fantom 12 keep up with the MT-12?

i have an MT-12 in one car which i like alot and need to get a second engine for another car. ive heard a lot of good things about the fantoms and they go pretty cheap on ebay... ~$100. how is the power compared to the MT-12? should i just stick to novarossi's?

I've heard good and bad about fantom engines. I would just stick with something you know is fast and it works.

I'm not really sure. All I know is the MR-12 is super fast. I heard the fantom engines are just like the hpi 12RSS. Is this true? If they are. Doubt it will keep up with a MR-12, but this is just from infomation I've heard, not seen or experiecned.
