mmmmmmmmm... I havent even started mine yet but I love it. I purchased this engine with no carby, at a rediculously good price mind you. I have a NP5X that I cant be bothered rebuilding and had heard that maybe the carb would fit this motor???? Is this true???

One of our other drivers has one of these with a MM stage 5 I use to be a LRP engine man until I saw this running against a LRP Team .21 with the same mod...

P.S - There is some footage of Darrens GO stage 5 in his LSP running on our new track finished today..4 tanks old mind you, up against the above mentioned!http://users.esc.net.au/~oblivion/rc...%20April07.zip

If your going to try a different carb, it needs to have a 15mm neck.

The original has that plastic sleeve to isolate the carb from the block heat so the stock carb is an unusual diameter.

They have updated the carb to eliminate the outer plastic sleeve and relocate the idle screw. I don't know about Australia but the entire updated carb sells for $41 in the US.

these engines are Novarossi P5/P5X copies pretty much, im sure timing is changed and some minor porting differences.

Ive been running my 7 port for a few months now and I am forced to take it out on our track. The track is too loose and the Go has so much power that I find it difficult to keep the my buggy planted.
Wicked power. I have not found any other engine that can catch me on the straight. RB C6 is a joke. I call out the RB C6 drivers on the track and challenge them.
What fun I have.

This motor ran perfectly with the Nova P5X carb. I had no probs with run in and can't wait to dial it in at the track 2morrow... I am running the Nova 9886 pipe seems to wive this a real smooth feel compared to friends who are running the RB and LRP pipes.. Ill let you know how it goes after its real test...

Well I ran the GO 5 port fully tuned at our track this weekend. This engine has incredible midrange torque!! These engines are as fast as most of the top engines running.. Not one flame out all day!!

yeah its the other way around, RB is made by Novarossi, except the TM line of engines.

just a few thoughts about the 5 port.

things used;
-LRP number 6 plug
-massive mods fuel
-option turbo head (i wish these were standard :? )
-extra copper .10mm shim mid way through race day
-JP3 pipe (jammin)
-ofna x1cr team kit

i ran it in, and had my first club day with this engine. after 50 or so minutes racing, it is still not yet broken in.

the engine does not come with enough headshims. MassiveMods brought this to my attention at the track after he realised it could use a bit of help from some extra shims (comes with the headbutton clearance and one copper shim) i added a copper shim to it (.10mm) and it helped the engine a bit, but would still probably need another silver shim as well.

these engines are very tight, and the lack of the shims makes the problem worse i think.

before you run them in, get either a silver and 2 copper shims and wack them in, or use the two shims from the OS engine (if you have one).

the 5 port go seems to be a excellent motor. i ran mine with a JP3 jammin pipe....don't beleive the hype! (or should i say bad press about this pipe) the jammin pipe is excellent with the GO 5 port engine. i also used a werks racing clutch with carbon shoes and the softest spring. worked awesome.

also, with the lrp 6 plug i had very good punch out of the corners, and it ran cool. the engine was still rich-ish though, yet responsive. (had that annoying tingy sound new engines not yet bedded in have, you know the noise.. sounds rough and high pitched when you take of a jump )

the GO ran at about 130 or 135 celcius possibly. my OS runs at 150 or so with a OS 3 plug

as a user, i am thinking of changing the conrod, the engien was just ridiculously, stpidly, annoyingly tight i must admit. After break in, it might be reccomended, or at least give it a thought to change the conrod. im not sure how comon this is in offroad, but in onroad, it is common practice witht he quicker guys to do this after break in. From what massive told me the conrods are pritty cheap though so it might be a good idea

finally!, (sh1t long post) the engine ran almost as quick as my OS (fully broken in), yet my GO is still untuned to race spek tune, and is still not totally broken in!! great engine. with the bits and peices you may want to get (ie turbo button, shims, and conrod) it probably comes to the same if not $20 less than a OS, but honestly, it's just as good, AND QUICKER.

Couldn't agree more with most people's opinions of the GO . My mate's running a Go Tech 7 port in 1/8 ONROAD . It screams !!! Top end is as quick as anything out there at our club (Lilydale) at the mo (includes Sirio's,RB's,CMB's,Mega's etc) . It was lacking out of the turns on Sunday but the motor has only had a couple of litres thru it and hasn't been leaned on yet . Also the clutch setup could have done with some work . [link=http://www.massivemods.com.au/]MASSIVE MODS[/link] in Sydney supplied the motor and did a bit of work to the crank timing I believe and we bolted a TOP Engine cooling head onto it so it didn't get too cold down here in Melbourne but other than that it's standard . I know what I'll be buying next and it ain't no $1000+ Collari !!!

What difference does the extra shims do to the performance?
