Anybody know anything on the picco .12 which I believe is the same as the Omega x12. any info on either motor?
I'm always surprised this motor isn't mentioned more often. I find it to be one of the best engines out there, yet not many people run it. xlgraphicspro, I've been running this engine for the past 3 race seasons and it has been perfect for me during that time. I have three of them, and all three have always run very reliably and have a ton of torque. They aren't the fastest on the top end, but it really doesn't matter since many tracks don't need the best of the best top end speed. All you really need is power in the corners and power to clear jumps. It is very inexpensive and should last you awhile. I usually get 12-14 minutes per tank. I don't ever see the Omega x12 version anymore, but Ofna still carries this engine (same exact engine). Go to Nitrohouse.com. They have them there for 120$.
