such a nice engine. It is very fast from what i hear and it gets great run time. That is my second choice of engine just cause i just order an engine. Either that or get the Go .21 5 port from amains for like 189.

YESS!! That is a awsome combo right there!! I mean awsome. But that mg66 is such a nice engine. Ive heard that with that mg66 and the efra 2072 people are getting 13min run times and some unbelievable power. The mg66 is just a modded version of the Go

would the go 21 keep up with the os 21's etc? im just getting back into nitro lol been a year or two since i last ran one.
is the MG that much better then the go to justify the price difference?

You should take a look at this engine. It is a full mod engine for right a 200. Great value for the money. You would be very happy with this mill.

Its like 30 dollars. Any that is extremly cheap for that engine. Will it keep up with the o.s.... More like would the o.s. keep up with the mg. The regular stock go with the 2072 yes it would keep up with the o.s. easy. What is this going in. Buggy or truggy?

Get the mg. I mean ya your gonna have to buy the go 2072 which can be about 50-70 dollars but that can be done at a later date. Do what you will feel better about. I think that go is heck of a deal. And a cheap alternative is the dynamite 086

right now im in for longer runtimes so not looking for a modded engine, considering we have 30 min mains here sometimes longer....
the go fits the budget for me right now as its the first engine ill have since over a year ago. id like to get back in the groove of things before i start spending over $300 for a motor/pipe combo. $230 is beautiful for a complete setup AND a extra conrod for after break in.. alto the MG sounds like a great motor i might just have to pick one up at a later date.
