That's a steal. But remember, its not an 'engine' its a motor. Engine has to do with things that run on gas, like my Nitro Stampede. Motor has to do with XMODS other electric RC's if we are talking RC.

Stage 2 motor. It is a good motor for a step up but still easy to use. Sold at radioshack. The stage 2 isn't the best motor out there, but it is still good. People make mistakes. You should see me .

Go for the Supra, it's rarer and you won't regret it.
