You can alway get it modded , but i would just use the motor till its dead and then get a newer .21 . It will be faster in the top end and probably have about the same low end depending on what motor you go with. Are you looking for just more top end speed ? You can also play around with gearing to get more top end or low end too.

I just sold a Go 5 port .21 to a local racer that had a Ae .28, he said it had alot more power even though it is a .21. I can also rebuild/modify your engine for $50.00, includes resizing the sleeve, checking clearances, modifying it etc.

It won't take long to blow it! I shoved the rod out the side of the block on my first one.use it as a paper weight and move up to a better engine.

LOL i am that local racer.. It is true. The Go .21 GX-5R blows this motor out of the water. This thing makes some intence power. And thats in a truggy to, all would think that the pro .28 would have the bottom end covered but nope. it doesnt stand a chance.

Thanks Rex.
