I've heard the fantom engines were pretty good. Might be a good engine to buy. I'm having problems with the 2.5, just like everyone else I guess.

FR18? I didn't know Fantom made an .18. I new they just released a new .21, but I didn't know anything about an .18. Is it available now, or is it upcoming? Where is there info about it?

I just saw the FR 18 in extreme rc cars magazine yesterday. They had an ad for it in there. I don't know if it's out yet, but they said that it was a direct replacement for the 2.5 just like the Sirio.
