Right just to add my twopence worth. I have revo. Yes the power comes in early and shoves you back. HOWEVER. It does not tail off anywhere near as much ad people say. I would say that I still have power at around 5000 rpm. That's the same as others. I'm not saying for one minute that it'll pull as strong as say a more linear curve but then the argument could be that you've already had the power and doing the speed from that early burst. Revo doesn't tail off anywhere near as some make out. All in all it depends on what you want. A smooth linear curve/ line or a shove in your back. All will make the same power(ish) just in different ways that's the only real difference. Over and out!!
