Our friends at the RC Pro Series have announced that GO Engines, in conjunction with Racefactor Industries, is offering an engine sponsorship to the 2008 RC Pro National Champion in Intermediate Buggy. This will be a 100% contracted sponsorship and if those Champions elect not to take the sponsorship it will be offered to the next highest placed racer in that class. GO and Race Factor also offer a contingency program for club and large events where racers using the GO Engines can win money or discounts on a new engine.
IModel in France have contacted us to inform us of their own hand tuned version of the GO B21.5P buggy motor. This 3.5cc 5 port engine features work done to the main components of the engine that increase performance and longevity. The crankshaft has been lightened while there has been work done to the crank bell, which has been polished and lightened for better acceleration. The liner has also received some attention with the ports getting the teardrop treatment, while for more tuning possibilities the engine is supplied with 4 different venturies.
Massimo Esposito, or Espomax to his friends, a well experienced Italian driver has agreed to join GO Technology and use their engines for the rest of the 2007 season and the whole of the 2008 season. After some extensive tests, he found that GO Tech engines were capable of giving him all the power he needs combined with reliabilty, all from an inexpensive engine.
South Korea based GR Racing have produced yet another work of art as far as the workmanship is concerned as seen in photos relased from their latest project.
