There is "fast" and there is "quick". The F-8 stuff is quicker in 600-700 feet but in longer distances the turbos tend to shine more. There are plenty of videos of the F-7's beating the turbos...even boosted turbos for a long ways. If you want to spend $ and be out near the front when racing, then probably go with the turbo with go fast parts on it and hook it up. If you want someting lighter, more nimble and is already pretty quick then the F-8 type models are pretty good. You'll never be the fastest or quickest out on the trail with pump gas.....because my engine builder is and I'm in 2nd place...
