Default Fantom .12 vs. CV-R

which has more power the fantom or a CV-R. I am really trying to get a feel for how powerfull these fantoms are... i seem to read mixed opinions at both extremes. is it a 1+ HP motor?

The OS .12 TR is about 1.15 bhp as well. And a fine motor for short tracks. If you're going to be racing on a big track or a track like rev where it's very swoopy you might want to look at the mugens or something with less low end and more high end power.
