Default Go .21 Conrod

Hi guys I want to know if anyone has clarity on this, they are using GO.21 conrods on Novarossi motors. Has any one tried this and do they work or not? At a fraction of the cost I can see why it would be so attrative. I see bore and stroke are identical.

Thank you
Warren

I know of some friends who have done it. Not sure of the exact Rossi motor they put them in but it worked perfect.

From what I have heard dont quote me but GO TECH bought older Nova patents and used them and put their own twist to it IDK. But I know my GO's will hang with Nova's any where.

Yep it can be done. The go rods fit in any of the p5 based engines, aswell as the plus 21-5 based engines. Not really sure if it would be something I would do. There is a huge price difference, but there is a reason for that. The nova rods are much higher quality. Really up to you wether you want to put lesser quality parts in your engines or not.

Well I actually run on road so rod changes are done every 6 hours depending on the track. In our currency Nova rod.....750 go motor rod.....150 HUGE difference! I know the R4,5,6,7 rods are compatible and on and off use the same rods. Will for sure give it a bash, will run the Go rods in club and my mod circuit motors Nova rods. Geez you off road guys are waaaaaaaaaay quicker than on road guys..............with feedback that is

Now another interesting ? what about pliston and sleeves?

All the best!

Again they are compatible with a lot of nova engines. I actually have a nova plus 21-5 with go tech internals(P/S/R). So yep it can be done, but again it is up to you to decide.

Well thats really good news!!! And from what I here the GO motors are really stunning performers. Has a GO rod ever failed prem (not a once off) but a factory fault, if the answer is no then there is NO issue with quility as off road the rods take a good bit of punishing.

I have heard some talk about a couple people having the lower rod bushing come out of a GO rod. That would be a manufacturing error to me. Probably a very slim chance that you would get a bad one though.

there is a vendor on Ebay that sells a Rossi made (claimed) con rod that fits a wide rainge of engines, including Nova P5's. Don't know if it's any better than the Go rod.

Hmm Go lesser quality, I certainly havent experienced that

My EBM5 buggy engine (Go 5 port with tweaks) has right around 6 gallons on it and its holding up like a 2 gallon old P5, it took almost 3 gallons before the metal pinch went away and my rod has zero slop. Thats a long time to beat on the rod pin and if it was going to loosen up it would have been by now.

My Truggy motor is fairly new and has about a gallon through it so far and its been identical to the buggy motor.... still cant turn it by hand hot or cold and the rod is still perfect.

I ran Nova's back when mugen brought them in and had alot of bearing issues, not to mention noticable rod slop after less than a gallon, same with the Vspec I've run. Overall I think the GO motors are a pretty good value for the buck. Everyone I've seen to here locally that has ran them longer than me are still running them, that must mean something.

Well, with that kind of track record and having experience with both motors I WILL be slotting some of those GO rods into my Nova engines!!!!! Its a pity GO have no on road motors because they seem to be performing really well. Thanks a million for the great feedback, really appreciate it guys!!!!!
