Default How would these motors compare in an 8ight-t

Ok I plan on racing my truggy next season in the pro-series, I felt very left out this season as I normally run e-truggy and as of now they still don't have this class at all events.

I currently have a JS Eb Mods race prep .21 in my truggy.. I want to pick up a used spare motor for emergencies or when this one dies or goes out for work.

How would these two motors compare to my js

Novarossi 421b turbo plugged
Go 5 port ceramic bearings (gen 5) motor

Both have a few gallons but are in good shape.. what is the best choice? The go is a little cheaper.

in my experince, the nova is a better motor BUT it is harder to tune. the go would do pretty good and will be a lot easier to keep in tune.

The Nova is by far the better motor. The Go is a good motor too and makes plenty of power, but they just don't last compared to the Novas.

That being said, everything goes out the window with a used motor. Who knows what the previous owner did with it. When it comes to used motors, only spend what you're willing to lose. Or if you want a solid backup motor, look at the Nova N21R. Great motor and cost less than $150 new.

HONESTLY run which ever 1 YOU think was BETTER cared for ...you said the GO has ceramics in it...well if thats the case,then just grab that 1 cause parts are ALOT cheaper for the GO engines then the NOVAS...but like i said, buy the 1 YOU think has been taken care of better

The 421b turbo is one bad engine when set up properly. My favorite nova engine. It just got reincarnated finally as the Max Power Xtreme 8 port. I have the JP version of it. Can't speak abt the Go since i've never had one.
