I've had great experience with the Go tech 5 port, but horrible experience with my LRP z28 spec 3 truggy. My LRP was very finnicky, carb low speed needle was very sensitive 1 hour = 1/8th of a turn on other carbs. It also seemed to need a retune every time I went to the track. My GO 5 port very easy to tune and held the tune. I also tried sealing the carb on the lrp and it still had issues. Maybe I just had a bad copy as other guys on the track were running the same engine without a problem. I'm not a newb either as I've successfully tuned nova's and RB's which can also be finnicky.

I would go with the Go Technologies engine. The LRP engine is manufactured by SH Engines and those mills have a bad history of breaking cranks.

"Go" for it.....lol. Damn fine engines for the $ and the distributor is great to deal with, really stands behind his products.
Im hearing great things about the new 25 engine.

I've got a Go 5 port race and 3 port sport and both are excellent values. The Go motors are hands down the best bang for the buck I've seen in nitro engines in several years.

In addition to being top shelf engines, they are backed by some of the best customer service in the biz today.
