Well as long as your Go .21 was properly maintained and only used so much it has lost compression. send in the piston/sleeve to OSROCKET and get it pinched.. 21.99 after shipping cost and he will work some magic (you can talk to him as well if you want..)

I have a friend that bought the axial and it is a monster.. don't know how it lasts since he rarely runs with us.. but its got gobs of low end and mid power..

I bought a Sportwerks .26v2 (discontinued) and its a real screamer for the price too..$119 at the time last year...

For a really good inexpensive power plant either get another Go .21 5port new from Amain for $209 (or elsewhere maybe cheaper) ...
Or look for that killer deal on Rctech.net! (shameless I know).. just be careful.. don't buy that "only has 1 gallon" engine that looks like its never been cleaned... 1 gallon and abused is much much much worse than 5 gallons and maintained...

Default Mach 28

I have both engines the Axail 28rr and the Mach 28 I like the Mach 28 over the Axail
Mach 28 pros
lots of power in a buggy great power band
great fuel consumption 71/2 minutes 125ml tank
cons
runs hot 270f but this is normal for this engine and hasn't effected the longevity of it
you could removed 1 of the head shims to get it to run cooler but I wouldn't it isn't that much of a difference.
Axail 28rr
lots of power in a buggy great power band
cons
Bad fuel consumption 5 minutes 125ml tank

If I was to buy another cheapy engine it would probally be a Mach 28, 5min tanks doesn't help win races. But I have moved on form cheapy engines.
