me i would stay away with the go engines. i had a 5 port, .25 and a 3 port race. the 5 port was fast but did not last long, the .25 was pretty good but down on topend. the 3 port was good as well. the quality is just not up to par, with other engines which is the experience i had.

I'm running the extech 24 full mod. It is definitely faster than my c6. the power is smooth, but may be too much for some. I do recommend some Lucky 7 sealant on the carb though. you can not find another motor modded with ceramics and all for the price. If anything go w/ the pre run and use the coupon with amain. I'm running the Big boy pipe as well and the combo is as much motor as I need and more.

I went with a Go .21, but I just wanted to try something different. The 427 is a great engine at any price, especially ~$150.

If it needs a pinch I'd send the piston/sleeve to rayaracing.com.

As far as modding. There are quite a few guys that have motor modding businesses including myself (although I don't mod italian mills). I would ask what is it you want out of the motor? There are things mod'ers can and can't do. A good mod'er will ask you what it is you want out of the motor, how good are your tuning skills, have you already tried tuning with pipes, have you tried different clutch set-ups... They should also have lots of experience with the motor you are asking about as well...


Also, along with myself, I know of other good mod'ers that won't modify engines that are used, especially with 4 gallons on it. There could be already too many things that are deteriorating on the motor and the added stress of the mods could cause the motor to fail.

Just get it pinched if it needs it and run it.....

I don't understand why people don't think the Go is as good of quality as other motors? I rebuilt and resized sleeves on probably 100 motors within the last year. From sport motors to Speed V-specs. The Go's hold there pinch probably longer than any other motor. The bearings and everything else are as good as anything out there. Yes, I admit the long lsn was a little tricky to tune.
My son was at a race a few weeks ago and got his .25 in his truggy 330 deg. It did loose a bit of pinch but it never flamed and he won the race. A speed v-spec looses a ton of pinch just over 250 deg. I am constantly repinching the Speed motors for the local guys.

i guess because some people have had bad luck including myself. for $200 a Nova or Rb is better.

pinching speed's over and over, on the same internal parts, I'll take it.

I am kind of in the same boat as the guy who posted the thread but for a buggy. I have everything I need to get the buggy going but the motor. I would say I have 220 at most but probably less to spend on a motor. I was set on the nova .21 limited edition but I have seen and heard of other very good motors. For you guys what would you select out of these mills.

The dynamite platinum .21

nova n21bf

go 3 port race

jpx .21 (if I can afford it)

go 7 port race (if I have the money)

Trinity extech

or the rb s3

I would say I am really debating between the rb s3 or the nova but which would you guys choose out of those selections. Would the nova or rb have more top end? Also any other suggestions are welcomed, Just want a good mill to start racing on!!!

To give someone a good recomendation for motors you should list:
Car it's going in
Track size
driver experience
what do you want in a motor, top or bottom?
fuel mileage a concern?
