This engine was just added to the roster.  As far as a few initial thoughts, the engine has great detail, runs smooth & silent (with no motor or gear noise) and has great sound and smoke output is excellent.   The engine has a solid and high quality feel to it.  The axle, gears and connecting rods are all metal(as is used on the Challenger) and the motor has a ball-bearing on the worm gear output shaft for long life and durability.

It is with this engine that you may really notice the size difference in the 1:32 scale.   

Overall, it was a good purchase and am glad to have it in the roster.
