A buddy of mine just finished his first race day(yesterday) with his 3 port limited edition. it is a very quick little motor. purfect for a small-medium sized track in a buggy. He was still running it slightly rich because it is still new but he was making plenty of power and fuel milage. once he gets a couple of gallons on it it will rip. for the money I don't think you can beat this motor. novarossi quality and performance for $150. definately get the limited. the new crankshaft, crankcase and carb make this motor even better. only problem he had with it was the little decorative plates on the side of the block came off. the heat melted the glue and they just fell right off. that doesn't hurt anything though. and if you really want the case to look pretty i'm sure you could find some heat resistant glue. carb sealant might even hold them good enough.
