Default Go Technology .25 6 Port Race Engine

Has anyone ever used this motor and what did you think? I'm thinking of putting one in my SC8. Thanks

The .25 6 port is a great truggy motor, awesome bottom end power but very controllable. We get about the same mileage as with a good .21, around 10 minutes. If Go engine Usa doesn't have parts for it he will get them, I know he has cranks and rods for it.
The .25 and .28 Go's have not been updated like the .21 Gx motors. The Gx 5 port has the coated crank and new head and comes with restrictors and a spare rod so it's quite a bit better deal.

We've got a couple in inventory. If they're still looking for them, we can get them out to your LHS or through Rex. Just have them shoot me an email at contact@go-engine-usa.com. I've already got Rex/22Racer setup as a dealer, so he has my email already.

Here's on of my favorite vids of a .25 in action. It is the first race on a new motor, the leader (Kendall Welch) is running the .25, Bohlman the one behind him is running a Rb mod Sirio Cl7b. You can definately see the launch you get off the corner with the .25.

He ran an 086 for most of the time and an 0801 sometimes. He's been running a Gx 5 port in his truggy lately but it's nice to have a .25 in your box just in case!
