Agreed, alot of people are fooled into thinking 'ports' souly contribute to low and top end performance. I was a bit worried about purchasing a 3 port but soon learnt that the Go .28 3p's, bolted onto a 2 speed trans you will be one of the quickest out there.

One of my fellow racers uses the same engine in his LST 2, he said he will never look back.

Man you guys have been a wealth of information. Now the decision. I have also been looking at the picco 28 which you can use a roto start on. Any thought on this motor.

Also, I would agree that the number of port does not always tell the story of the overall performance, and thanks for you personal insights to the go motor. Because of the price it is high on my second motor choice.

The issues is the crank has to have the nub, for lack of a better word to work with a roto start. As an example my Novo P5X will not connect to a roto start, other wise I would have that race 21 I have been seeking. I looked at the tiger drives and what I like about them is the flexability to place the hex in all for directions depending on your set up.

I have looked into getting another NOVO crank that will take roto, but if buy another truggy I would need that motor. The main reason I am going with the LST is two fold. I love to race and I have been racing a revo for 3 1/2 years, but they can be twitchy. I tried to race the LST in 04, but you know all the issues it had and I sold it. However, I loved the way it handled. By the way I race in a NW Series event along with my local track.

For the last two seasons, I have been racing a JAMMIN CRT pro, the first generation, and I just got tired of trying to race something that won't turn, and I'm tired of spending so much money for two racers. I will be running my LST at the local races against the truggy's if there are not enough monsters to have a heat, and racing it in the series against the monsters. Kind of a two for one.

Alot of good info for racing the Lst can be found here http://lstforums.com/forums/index.php
The topic on the race .21 has been talked about quite a bit in the past few weeks
When I was racing my Lst, I did use the Picco P3 in mine. It worked well.
The thing most people don't realize is that a Lst can be made pretty light weight for it's size. I have seen 10.5 pounds as an average race weight for the Lst... Mine weighed in at 10.75. So really a good race .21 would have enough power to do the trick... I'd love to race an Lst again with hot .21 in it
