Default The old peak DIABLO

I know the new WASP and DIABLO REV motors are ont the way but im new to nitro and want to know what do you guys think about the old diablo for a touring car. I just got a Mongoose for my first nitro and dont know if getting one of the big HP engines is a good idea, kinda like getting a 10single as you first mod motor and going to your first race Stormer Hobbies is selling them for $89.00 I guess because the new one is coming out, but the say that it still a good engine 1.25 HP Would this be a good first race engine or do I have a big blue rolling paper weight till I come up with $200 or more?
