For the money there are better. I do like that it holds a tune very well and it has some great top end but, it should have more bottom end. It rips great if running on dirt and the street but, it's lack of real torque shows if you try going through grass any higher then 3 inches. I would go with a Picco .26 before the Fantom.

That I can't say for sure as I don't race but, I do think it would do good on a track as long as you did not have to go through any mud!LOL Some other members have had temp and tunning problems that I have not seen yet so, give it a try if you like but, I would wait to see if more people have problems with it.
