I ran a stock vspec in a buggy last year. great motor, in a buggy I like the OS 2050 pipe. Just keep up on changing the bearings every 3-5 gallons and you will love it. my stock vspec lost power around 10-12 gallons. I then had the ebmods vspecs which are more powerful and more fuel efficient. 8-10 min in a buggy 7-9 in a truggy the truggy I use the os 2060 pipe. I also found that the ebmods was a smoother engine, you could really use the power. it was not as abrupt as the stocker. well these are the engines I run so I am only familar with them. not to be one sided but to only offer knowledge on what I have experience with.

I have a JP-3 pipe and I'm only looking for 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 min of run time I don't need crazy 10 min.
Thank you for all the help and suggestions I think I have it narrowed down to the O.S. v-spec and the Go-Tech 5-port.
If anybody has any opinions on the gotech motors please say something.

something....












I dont think the customer service gets any better... I have run the 7 port, and seen the 5 port run.. Very strong motors... not just 'for the price', but flat out good motors.

I fought with the whole 'its too cheap to be decent' thing.. I think the only thing you will read 'bad' about them is some of the carb 'issues' some are having, but its a quick and easy fix.

I use a Axe Cobra and get aroun 8.5 mins with a JP3 pipe.
Guys have been raving lately also about teh RB C6BB7T and talking around 14mins at sea level with 2047 pipe and 11 - 12 mins at altitude (5800ft)
Thats impressive.

the difference is not power. the go tech makes close to the same power as the vspec the difference is longevity! the vspec makes great power for a long time. I would say with all my friends that run vspec's that 10-16 gallons is not hard to achieve with proper maintenance. the go tech i have herd mixed opinions about longevity of the motors some say 4-6 gallons some say 2 some say 10 gallons. But if you are a club racer the vspec will provide you with a easy to tune long legged power house.
thats my 2 cents

personally i think it is more about WHAT the hobbiest can handle rather than how great or good an engine is. Dynamite makes a good engine, go tech, werks, trinity, picco, RB, nova rosi, OS.....long list thing is can you tune it or are experienced enough to tune? (seen guys totally DOG on an engine they have had and sell it then the next week get beat by the same engine they sold lol)how well will you care for it? imo that is the biggest question. things like single needle, 2 needle and 3 needle carbs, right fuel plugs....ALL of those engines (some i havent even listed) can win races question is as with anything takes the know how.

Tdeal823 come on be realistic, you would be very hard pressed to find anyone who has raced a v-spec for 10-16 gallons. You would have trouble finding anyone who raced a v-spec for 8 gallons.

curious, what size is your track? I race with Jason H. and I have had good luck with my OS VG on the track that is tight. Excellent low end and it will run for quite awhile on a tank of fuel. Very easy to tune and I got it for about $140 as well.

I think the only thing I would look into for it is in really hot weather maybe an after market head.

I figure if you are on a track that you really can't open up on, why spend close to $300, spend the $150 and use the other $150 for hopups or whatever. Maybe have it in your pocket when you win with the cheaper engine to way around since you saved that money

Good luck with whatever you choose!
