I like the smoothness of the ceramic bearings. Makes it more efficient. I usually install them as replacements when the stocker goes out. Works on the Speeds.

Maybe they didn't read up and realise you tune a Go motor very different... leave HSN alone (maybe lean it 1 HOUR after break in) and tune it off the LSN only pretty much. Once you know that (and if buying a new brand you should know that cos you read about them, not just run them right?) you are schweeet.

I have a 5 port Go that has 1 gal on it, still running a heap of pinch, and very very rich, and it keeps up or beats with similar age RB's, an OS V spec and a couple of Ninja's at my club. I can get more out of it but choose not too.

I see plenty of stories online about V-specs that didn't last. Maybe those guys also didn't tune them right and then whinged online about the lifetime of their motors???

A quote from the Go Tech thread (which is full of similar quotes):

".... I will tell you I have a GO 5 port in my Truggy that has 5 gallons on it and I have only needed a front bearing after 2,000,000,000,000 total rpms it still straight up rocks.
My 7 port in the buggy- too much power, period."

Same on the Nova. I saw a new S421B do that after 5 minute qualifier. Pinch was gone.
