Has anyone raced with the sts factory modified engines.I was looking at the 3 port maybe even the 5 port outlaw.They are a good price and i want somethink inexpensive as i race mainly offroad.Do they have the power.

The green head ones?
I have not had the pleasure of owning one but I can vouch for the STS engines in general. I purchased a STS D5 for my LD3, since then I have purchased a D3R, D5R and D21B :) So yes I am impressed with the performance & bang for buck.

I have not run my D5R enough to compare to the D3R. When I do I will be using the carb from the D3R anyway (smaller = easier to tune)

Plugs I am using Odonnel 77T.
fuel 15% nitro & 11% oil

If your not using 30% nitro remove shims as per instructions.
