    Default Fantom engines

    I may be in the market for a new engine soon. Anyone have personal experience with Fantoms? Good, bad, ugly, I need it all.

    experience wise fantoms are reliable they're pretty easy to tune from what I heard and the smallblock has good power to a smallblock so I'm guessing the big block fantom will be great, amazing at that.

    I have the sirio 27 and all i can say is this engine is a beast, im pulling wheelies with a savage and big joe tires on it. Its fairly easy to tune but it is kinda picky and dont hold a tune well you have to tune it with the weathers change.
