Default king motor 23cc top end options

anyone care to suggest a top end replacement?

I've got a 23cc king motor baja, and it sucked quite a bit of dirt, airfilter was dislodged, and the red Georgia clay goes in pretty fast, bearings feel ok, but compression is low

bah not worth putting a top end on it

thoughts on the CY29RC vs the GP290 ? The cy29rc chromed with clutch & carb is only 200 $, seems a little cheaper

while I'm at it, I need to change the gearing, this thing is topping out real fast, plenty of power, needs a little more speed, suggestions?

Too bad you are so far away, I have a couple 23cc topends never ran taken off of a Rampage and another Zenoah I modified from new.

I managed to get this one running again, it's not healthy for sure, the inside was black gritty oil, probably metal shavings, it's running good, but harder to start for sure

You know any others up that way with 1/5 Scale RC? Looking for others to bash with when I get my 5B SS done.

I race 1/8 scale but there are not any 1/5 scale tracks in Georgia. Trying to get enough interest up hopping may be someone will build one.
