Default Go Truggy Engine - .21 vs .25

like the title suggests - which engine would be better suited in a truggy (d8t) the Go Tech .21 3port Race or the Go Tech .25 6port Race? it will be a race motor

I had a GO .25 and it had tons of power till the piston blew apart. But as far as bang for your buck you can't beat a GO.

You'll get better mileage out of the .21 and more torque with the .25. So it really depends on what you're willing to give up.

i figured that was going to be the trade off - what about pipe choices and carb restrictors? is having my cake and eating it too possible with the right tune, pipe, and carb restrictor setting?
