I'm enjoying a chuckle from this one.......the Kyosho GT/GT2 is sold as an "entry level" car. You need to define your intended 'target'......racing....bashing.....don't know/care got money to play with.
There are motors that will end up shredding tires/doing nothing to help you do better 'on the track' but giving you the 'WOW' factor until you put it away or sell it because it served no specific performance goal.
The selection is almost endless for the GT power niche. Most people I race with have 'gravitated' to the 5 or 7port Nova Rossi. ($200-250) This is the choice for most of the racers I've run with. If you need 'total insane speed', I won't inject any stupidity here..........I've cured myself of that by trying to keep the car 'tractable and track worthy'. You can bump to the 9port Nova and if you can learn to compete and win with the 'big boy' features of that monster, feel free to keep us posted of your success.
GT cars are fun but you'll need to look over someone's shoulder to 'take notes'......don't forget tires to keep the thing on track. A 'killer motor' with those stock Kyosho tires is just horrible.........
Picco, LRP, Sirio, etc, etc. have very popular acceptance. I just see many more smiley faces with Nova lately on the GT scene. You can't replace the Sirio S24T I have from the 'red' PRO version of the Kyosho car for less than $200 but the little Nova 5t pulls past me on the straight.
