Default Team Infinity .21 Race Motor

I recently got the motor off of ebay for $150 the motor uses a standard plug fires on the first try, but due to the weather I'm stuck just eyeing the breast. I have the motor in a Serpent excel MK2, that I 'm testing the jump from 1/10 scale " The Kyosho V one RR Evo to an 1/8 scale is an interesting one. The motor seem to be a breast, but only true testing will tell..... Oh Ya the web site is all in Japanese, but there is a English version being worked on. The thing want's to look like a Fantom Motor, but the head is in silver not red.......

After watching the engine in action there's nothing to be excited of.But I'm surprised yours uses standard plug.The Katana is supplied with turbo plug.

Thumbs up

Here are a few links for this engine. I bought one for my Vision pro and will use it after my STS Dragon 3 wears out.

If anyone has run one, please let me know how it ran.
