    Yes, the race version. Also, i did not have the additional shim installed. I put it in yesterday but haven't had time to try again. I am using O.S. P6 turbo Hot plugs too.

    I'm debating on buying this engine, your post has me worried though []
    There\'s a right way and wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is trying to make everybody else do it the right way

    well, don't worry too much yet. I have broken in several engines but this is my first 'race' class so it could be user error.

    RE: Official Thread for the Go 21 Engine


    ORIGINAL: nucular

    I started breaking my 3 port in this weekend and was having a lot of trouble keeping it running for the 1st 2 break-in tanks. I had the HSN out 2 turns (according to the sheet that came with it) but i have heard other people say 1 turn out from flush which is a huge difference. It would stay running if i left the ignitor on it. The entire time it was just spitting fuel out the exhaust which tells me it was way too rich. I tried to turn the lsn in a little but then it would just run erratically. Are these pretty finicky during breakin?
    I had to break mine in with the HSN 1 turn out. 2 turns out was too much and it would not idle and stall and blow fuel out real bad. Idled the 2 tanks and then ran 3 tanks and then leaned it a half turn so it was a half turn out from original and it was fine.

    Was that 1 turn out or 1 turn out from factory? I was 2 turns out from bottom.

    The way the motor comes out of the box you are supposed to back the needle out 1-2 turns from factory. I did 1 turn out from factory. If you are 2 turns out from bottom you are WAY too lean! You leave the needles alone except the what we just wrote about for break in.

    That's what I would have thought but the spitting fuel leads me to believe differently.

    You know, I should have thought of this earlier but I'm going to swap out the plug. It was new but who knows.

    RE: Official Thread for the Go 21 Engine

    Holy crap 21 pages my eyes are about to bleed.. I decided to read this entire thread because the guy that mods my motors told me I should give them a try and I wanted more infomation.. So here are my questions.

    1. those of you that have both the 5 and 7 port turbo how much of a difference is there in bottom end between them?
    2. Has anyone put more than 6 gallons through there go tech and if so how is it holding up?
    3. How many of you have gone to ceramic bearings and why did you switch?
    4. Has anyone tried the THS 816 pipe with one of these engines if so how did it run?

    RE: Official Thread for the Go 21 Engine

    The reason anyone switches to ceramic is they last longer run smoother and have less friction. I cant really answer the other questions, but I can give you an opinion on the 5 port. The 5 port has alot of torque. Even with my 086 pipe on and a 7mm carb insert I have to limit my throttle to keep from spinning out. Top end is really good too which surprised me a bit since I was able to keep up easily on the straights and most times outrun the faster engines since I get up to speed quicker.

    On a really long straight(180 feet or more) It might be a problem, but i dont race on any track with straights that long anyway.

    RE: Official Thread for the Go 21 Engine

    Well, I worked on another break-in tank of my 3-port R. I reverted the needles to what I read in the RC-Tech thread (just under flush on the HSN and a couple turns out on the LSN I think), I put in a new plug, and broke open a new gallon of ODonnells 30%. I was using a left over gallon of 20% from before winter - thought I stored it properly. I'm happy to report that it ran that tank exactly like I thought it should. It started right up, didnt die through the whole tank, and smoked perfectly. At this point I don't know if it was the fuel or the plug but one of them was bad.

    Probably the fuel if it was before winter. Glad to hear you got it running good for break in.

    i would try a p3 plug and keep a heat gun or blow dryer on the head to help keep the temps up. i could barely keep my engine running during break in it was so rich i would idle a tank in about 5 minutes. i currently bought a jammin 21 for my buggy to run outdoor but for indoors im buying a 3 port race to try out

    wrap the head in tinfoil and put the cutoff end of an old sock on it it keep the temp up. It worked great for me kept my break in temps above 200 running really rich and I never stalled once.

    Remember to drop a head shim from 4 to 3 or 3 to 2 for 20%?

    I had the same problem you are having. I put several drops of After-Run Oil in the glow plug hole and I kept the glow plug loose. I wrapped the head with foil and I bought a heat gun from Home Depot because a hair dryer was getting the engine head hot enough. I had to get the temps up to about 250 degrees F to finally get it to turn over. I also turned the flywheel clockwise just until I felt it have some resistance so the flywheel can get some momentum when it engages the starte box wheel.

    The break-in process for a Go Tech engin can be frustrating but keep at it. You will be very happy with your engine once you get it running. Good Luck.
