seen a few people a while ago with the green headed one, they all ended the same

in the bin with broken cranks!!!

i had a .28 that was crap as well wouldnt tune and lost all compression after 2gals

maybe they have improved them since but until i see some positive comments from non biased individuals my theory is you get what you pay for and in this case it aint much!!

I use to run STS mills. I bought a .21t a couple of years ago which is still running pretty strong. I have the .21T in a RTR that I let friends or my son drive.

I bought a STS .28 about a year ago before I heard of Go Tech. I wish I wouldn't have purchased the STS 28. It has about a gallon through it and the front bearing seems to be leaking. It makes decent power but after owning and running Go Tech mills, I couldn't be more happy.

I think the Go Tech mills would definately blow the pants off a STS mill. I think the dollar for dollar, the Go tech engines are great. I have been very happy with both of my 21 turbos.
