Yeah swaps are going to start costing more due to the fact that everyone will be dumping there motors... The more the supply of stock motors the less they are worth... I think the r1 is really drivable and prolly one of the best motors for the swap. I am sure the rotax swaps are awsome too but they don't have the power of the r1... This rhino is violently fast

So, if I am Rhino-less and looking to buy one. Should I look for a less expensive 450 if I wanted to do an R1 swap like this? Or is the 450 missing some crap that I would need to complete an R1 swap?
