I run one in my MBX6 and a buddy runs one in his K-car. We are both running the 086 pipes and these little engines are screamers. I have about 4 gallons on mine and will be replacing the con rod soon just as a precaution.

witnessed that motor ...really strong....i ran one in my jammin crt and had plenty of power ....odonells 97t plug and 086 pipe ...no better motor for the money ...if broken in right and maintained ...will run 5-7 gallons and beyond .....a few things to watch for ....if you pull the carb out alot and or twist the carb in different directions ...go ahead and replace the lower and upper carb o-rings often or it will wiggle and give air leak probs....also keep an eye on the con rod bushing and or the crank pin ....skeller will also tell you that they do get slop in them and cause strange motor stalling problems ....
7mm restrictor
od 97t
m2c 4 shoe clutch
on mine and it was golden ......

What is it about this engine that makes it your favorite? I know you have quite the stable so a comparison to something else you might have (Nova, RB, etc) would be great.

Well I have a Novarossi N21B and has not top end compared to the GO. Also run a GO .21 7 Port but think it has a little too much bottom for me in a buggy and does not get the fuel mileage the 3-port gets and I am running the smallest restrictor 6mm you can get for it. I have ran a OS .21VG but they suck. Axial .28RR but they do not last as long and mileage of course is not as good. I also have a Axe Rossi Cobra .21 with a Evolution cylinder and that is nothing like my Go and is almost $200 more!! I run my GO 3-port right along side V-specs and RB's and Rossi's at my track and have no problems keeping up in the straights or anything. You really cannot beat it for the price!

Go Tech are awesome engines, especially for the money. I have both a 5 and 7 port turbo .21s abd I absolutely love them.

If you're looking for a new mill, the Go Tech engines race line can't be beat. If you are going to cosider buying one then contact vnmsgt. He is an authorized Go Tech dealer and a good guy to deal with.
