Default Engines

HI,

Is there companies of 1/6 cars that sell them with a modified G230RC ?

I searched over the net and saw many versions of this engine and the 26, the sticker on the engine side was not G230RC.

If I want to upgrade my engine, what should I do ? get the 26 instead or get parts to improve the performance ?

we have mods producing over 5.5 hp in the g230 gen 4 version of the motor.

there is a few good motor builders out there, be carefull stay with a reputable builder as I have seen motors that claim to be mods that make no power diff over a stock 230. the gen 4 g230 makes 3.2 hp out of the box, your buggie should stand on tail and go to 50 without a issue with a g230gen4.
gen 3 would be quick but be more like 2.5 hp

there are manufacturers out there such as supierior and sikk that make almost exact copys of the g230rc and the g260rc. all their parts are interchangable thanks to the go-ped market. there is hundreds of different combinations available! a good site to cheack out is www.davesmotors.com . my personal motor is a 27cc big bore with a filter, walbro alcohol carb, pipe, and a billit head kit. no way of telling but i think we got 5hp baby[8D]...PB
