i think it is, thats not mine specifically, but identical to mine, and ive only seen this model in red, so yeah. I really think the gearing on mine is perfect. from what I have heard these things are meant to run just crazy high rpms, I also want to hook up a tiny tach/other digital tach on this thing. in top gear, just when you think it will wind out, this thing whirrs like a top and keeps on pulling. I love it.
