I'm wondering how I'm able to distinguish between all the HPI engines? For example, how can I tell between a nitro star .15, a t-15, and a 15fe?

-T-15, newest .15, with a black case, silver cast head, and a flaming "15" on the case. many fins on the case, 2 needle carb, easyest to distinguish.

-15ss, option engine only. black case, black head, 3 case fins in the front, 2 needle carb, no bottom mounts

-15FE updated (new one), natural case, purple head, vertical heatsink fins on the bottom of the case between the bottom mounts, 1 needle carb.

-"Nitro Star .15" aka original 15FE, square natural head, natural case, 3 case fins in the front, no bottom mounts(only side mounts), 1 needle carb (very close to new 15FE)
