Hi All

We have a Go Tech engines thread in the exclusive nitro engines area in on road but we would like to have one in off road too for all your general questions and set up information for your GO Tech

Cheers MM

Yes i would also be interested in a contingency program.
I bought a 5 port Go Tech off Darren @ http://www.rchobbyzone.com.au/Location.php

I ran My Go Tech at the Whyalla interclub meeting on Sunday and came 3rd in my class.
Although my tune was off slightly i found this motor to have massive bottom end and reved very high and produced good power.

If there was a contingency program i would consider running these motors on a permanent basis and help give them the good name they deserve.

Hey everyone unfortunately the contingency program is not put on by the mfgr. but it is put on by the U.S. dist and so its only currently available in the U.S.

Drew as long as you have the Racefactor Industries sticker properly assembled on your car you will be eligible.

Yeah Drew you can reach me thru email at that website and I can set you up with some stickers.

Also I would like to point out something about the Go Engines and current customers already know, These engine get good run time and will run with anything on the track they have also proven to have a very good lifespan, but the absolute best thing about a Go engine that can't be denied is the powerband is amazingly strong and linear, There is no flat spots it just hits and pulls all the way to the top. When I first tested the Go's that is what sold me more than anything. First i come from an electric racing and when i got into Nitro I ran the Italian mills and the power band left a lot to be desired but I just figured that it was just the way Nitro is, When I ran the Go its the closest any Nitro engine has felt to electric to me. Having a consistant smooth powerband really makes these engines perfect for racing.

This powerband I feel is the main reason the Go engine owners have been so happy with their purchase. But don't go by what I say Let the current owners tell you what they think.

Here it is in action, it was a bit lean and had a slight bog at stages "learning to tune :] ", but it pulls like a monster and i love my Go Tech.
http://www.zone3adelaide.com/rcmovie...0round%203.wmv 18 meg, enjoy. You know what it looks like, just look for the car doing barrel rolls GG to Paul Savage for the video. The first part that you see is actualy my Nosram " LRP" engine but that later part i plonked the Go Tech in and it hammered

My question would be are they gonna bring out a .28 motor ?
Ive been running Massive Mods fuel in my Go Tech what glow plug do you reccomend?
Its a 5 port .21

Nice, it looks good. I love my GO .21 5-Port too. I think it screams for the price you pay and the contingency program just makes it an awesome motor.
I think they already have a GO .28, Ive seen it saying that on one site, cant remember where, maybe the OFNA but not sure. GO to www.racefactorindustries.com and Im sure Russell will know. Or if you already know Massive Mods then Im sure he might know.
Oh, nice vids and pics.. that thing was GOing pretty good.

Yes the Go Tech comes in .25 and .28 with and without ext start mech with roto and pull start options or back plate option. We will be bringing these in for the Australian market in a few weeks , please pre order now as they will be gone before they hit our shores.

All retail pricing will be avalable from us

Cheers M

PS we use Go tech #5 plugs or LRP #6 Turbo

Cheers MnM

We ran a Go 7 port in a 2 hour endurance... I was pretty damn impressed. Each stop it temped at 215.. and we had amazing power the whole night.

I was a skeptic due to the cost of the engines.... I am a believer now.
