Default Update on my Go 3 sport...

Has about 2 gallons through it so far. Today a swapped out my stock clutch bell for a 14t on my 8ight. The car is much more drivable now as I had way to much on the bottom. The Go 3 seemed to really wake up with the 14t, it gets to stretch its legs down the back straight. For direct comparisons I can easily pull an RTR 8ight with the mach 427 and I can match if not pull a sportwerks .21. I also diced with a friend today running a werks B3 and actually ran into him down the straight once or twice. So before with the 13t I could stay out of trouble in high speed sections, Now I can feel confident that I'm not going to lose because of a lack of power. Sorry, no other motors to compare to, everyone here runs sportwerks for some reason. I think its because there so supported by our LHS.

After 2 gallons it still has plenty of pinch and starts right up when its cold. Obviously its a bit harder to start when hot due to the aluminum carb. No leaks or other mishaps to report of just yet. So far so good!

I am interested in the Go Tech engines. Which specific model are you running? And what made you pick that model, specifically.

Man, everything I hear about these engines indicate that they are just phenomenal. I do believe I will be putting one of the 3 port sports in my new (used) XB8 EC. For $115 at Amain Hobbies, how could I not?

Now I am excited, because I can get an engine a lot sooner than I thought I would due to the low price. Do these engines come with break in instructions and tuning manuals when purchased new?

Im running the 3 port sport. I picked it because of cost, it was a bit of a gamble. and in the end, it payed off big time! The locals at the track continue to be impressed by my little $115 motor.

They do come with break in instructions that I sort of followed. With a blow dryer and foil I Idled the first 2 tanks, Then with foil still I ran 3 tanks in a parking lot at about 180 degrees. Then I ran it through about 5 more tanks on the track before I started to race tune.

if you think they're good value for money you should try a turbo button on it the locals wont know whats hit them

also if you need any help with the go engines there is an official GO Tech thread that alot of drivers are using
