Default Update on my Go 3 sport... V.Run time.

A friend and I clocked each others run time last night at the track. Running Od 30%, with a 14t clutch bell in my 8ight, I got 10.5 minutes on a tank. Thats with being marshaled. I'm using a JP2 pipe and was running in between 200 and 225. Im also using a 9mm reducer from my V-spec.

Just thought people might be curious about run time on a Go 3 sport.

Quick update, I now have a little over 3 gallons on the engine. Still runs awesome and has so much pinch I can't turn it over with my finger through the chassis opening. No leaks or anything to report. I also switched to 30% Od tonight and was able to easily race tune it within the first tank.

Every time you post, that's one more reason for me to get a Go Tech 3 port as soon as I can work it into the budget!

Yea, Im just super impressed with mine. Last night I was running with a guy who hasn't really raced 1/8 scale yet so I was just kind of following him around the track... I kept coming up behind him on the straight and finally he yells over to me, 'What kind of engine is that?!' He was running a sportwerks .26.

If this engine can last I'll never buy another brand.
