It is or was GO. This has been discussed many times. But even still it's nice engine. Just keep your needle/case o-rings in tact and thake your time to tune it (not screw like the neighbours daughter) and you'll be OK with it.

All I can tell you guys this is not a race ready engine !!
Lack of bottom and top speed is soo slooow, you better off with SH engine that will cost you less and give you the power for your next race.
I'm not a fan of SH engine, in the second qualifying my friend give to me his SH engine to replace my MK2 engine and all I can tell you guys SH engine rip more in all section compare to my MK2 and SH cost you less.

and that is one of the many reasons why I do not want to persue another rebadged motor. It was awesome for what it was and I fully disclosed what it was (Go motor).

It is no fun having people who apparently do not know how to tune motors talking badly on forums when the over 100 other Grenades that were sold never had complaints.

It is also no fun having to put up with a third party manufacturer that decides to use your motor as theirs and push you out of the way and discontinue yours.

For the record, we used a different crank and head. Sort of funny that the new GO engines are virtually the same.

I figured it was a great calculated risk as to name it grenade would assure that the name would never be forgotten and it has worked exactly how I wanted.

I have heard through the grapevine that some Caster guy put a v spec head on it and it bolted right on because there was someone giving them a hard time about running a grenade and that there was no way that some stupid Caster thing would beat their vspec.....

Long story short, after they won, they showed the other guy the motor and it said mk2 on the side. Apparenly they put the grenade head back on and did it again next round.

I think my whole team is class clowns.....gotta love them.
WE gotta keep em guessin Hak!

But tell me what is worse, me predicting the MK2 may win before the title or Durango claiming they were quick enough to win it after the title. Did Durango even make it to the final!!!

And what happened to the mighty STS!!!!!
