Default Go Technology 5 or 7 port engine?

I know you guys hate these threads but I just need your opinion on which Go Tech engine to put in my losi 8ight buggy. I run on a pretty big track with one looonng straight and then a bunch of tight turns and jumps with short runways so i need the one with the most torque. I can handle sacrificing the top end... I am pretty sure it could be geared and piped properly to still have enough top end. Thank you for your time!

my vote is wait for the 3port R, but if your set on either the 5 or 7 go for the 5...

Oh I almost forgot to ask... Do these engines come with two glow plugs? I usually use 30% fuel, but if these run better on 20% I will make the switch. Do they need to be shimmed for 30%? What all comes in the box?

I do agree that the silver head looks better!!
If you go with a standard head one it does come with 2 glow plugs and it is shimmed for 30% out the box.

You also get an extra head shim, instructions/exploded parts guide and stickers...

I will be racing the new 3port race engine as well. So you should be able to see what all the engines are capable of.
