I also run the RB s3. I've also run the novarossi 3-port in the past. Both are excellent engines.

With a Go you won't be hanging with them you'll be blowing by them for $200.00!

$179.99 at A-Main, it'd be hard to find a better bang-for-your-buck engine. Kyle Johnson just TQ'd every round of qualifying and won the Open Truggy class at the Reedy Truck Race with the .21 XP.

I've got 11 gallons on my Go 3 sport and 4 on my Go 7 race. Both are excellent engines that have never failed me. Go 3 sport for 125 is a monster that won't quit even running at 300 degrees during whole mains.

As far as the RB S3, its a rip off IMO, I raced against 2 people last season that used S3's and they get left behind vs. the 3 port sport Go. Trying to compare it to the 7 or 5 port is just inane.


Go 7 port for a buggy hands down.

Never had a go engine but seen alot of them and they seem to be a good motor for the money and plenty of power. I run a jp mod .21 and going down the straight the go motor(5 port) would keep right up.

I have only seen one bad RB at my track but it pi$$ed me off to see how RB treated their customer so I wont own one. It was a rb s3 l2g that was broken in properly,tuned right and ran good temps and lasted 3/4 of a gallon! I told the guy send it in to RB as obviously it is a one in a million flawed part type deal, RB's response was to blame the customer and decline any type of repair.

I am very anal about service...... I dont care how good your product is or how cheap it is, if the service isnt good I wont do business with them.
