I've worked with them.  Protect your wheels, and run foam wheels or else.  The power, weight and size are all very similar to the silver sparks.  I can't say for sure if the internals are the same, but I find them of similar (medium) durability.

Replying to an older thread, but I can guarantee that you won't find Silver Sparks anywhere but from FingerTech and its distributors.  They are custom made with heat-treated gears, the longer shaft, and the face-flush bushing (so you can easily mount with Bearing Blocks).

I run pololu micrometal motors in my ant, 30:1 MP with 22mm lego wheels is a great combo on 3s.
