Questions?? Go .21 5 port or Go .25 6 port

Just like the title says which should i get for a kyosho st-rr? I can get the 5 port for 190 shipped or .25 for 195 shipped! Does the turbo plug have an advantage or standard? Im buying in like 3 days so all the help i could get will be great!!!!!

To make a good suggestion we should know:
Track style- big, small, tacky, dry?
driver level- newbie, inter, expert
What motor did you run before and what were you lacking?

Both motors tune easy and break in about the same so there is no difference that way.

I ran the 5 port very good motor. The turbo plug helps get better fuel millage. It depends on the track, the 5 port has plenty of bodom,I don't know about the 25 might be to much, let someone who ran it tell u that. If you got the 25 i guess you could tame down the bottom by clutch set up and a mild trigger finger. The 5 port is very fast ether way u can't go wrong.

The 5 port turbo works well in truggy. It has plenty of bottom end torque and good top end . You will definately be pleased with the 5 port.

with your new track being bigger, you may get away with that, the 5 has tons of bottom , or you can run a longer header with the 086, i always used topend pipes on the GO's they where modded but topend pipes made them easy to drive. The carbs should be pretty solid, use a 6 or 6.5 carb insert and you will get great runtimes with it as well, we use P3 plugs for breakin, and run the same for racing unless you want better runtime use a P6, it will smooth out the bottom some but that may be good. Good luck

I think you should get both and while your at it,
get a .21 7port also. Just make shure that you
get PTM (Brian) to mod all of them for ya. That
way they will have even more power and get
better run times. Ha! Ha! All the GO motors that
Brian modded for me are still running great.
