Yea man, from the PLUS series. 21-5K to the 21-7BT. The front part of the crankcase hasn't been extended on these ones, so the seal will fit.

I can comfirm
any .21 GO crank will go onto the STS engines

my friend has a red headed sts .21T team and busted the crank at
the lubricating hole in front of the main bearing after a 1.5 gallon orso
the crank was just freewheeling in the case...

so he put in ,just like that, a 7 transfers GO engine crank
and now the sts has already 2 gallon of real racing
and definetely runs even better than with the stst crank.....
