We where running an .21 EVO2 and did not have good luck with it, We ran a PICCO .12 on road and it is still the sweetest engine I have ever owned, However the .21 has never made it through a race, always dies out and cant get it tuned properly. When we get it to stay running it runs to hot then quits, when you richen it to run cooler it drowns out and has no power then quits. Maybe we just got a bad one, but I am staying away from them for a while.

I've had two Picco .21s and both of them ran really good. The power is good, fuel economy is ok, and the power band is fairly smooth. With the price they are selling at now you really can't lose, since $230 for a competitive engine is awesome to say the least.

he's talking about the EVO 3 not the EVO 2, the EVO3 I think its $279.99 on amainhobbies, I believe I read that the powerband of this new engine is smoother, compared to the lightswitch EVO2 lol

You had a phantom airleak by the sounds of it.... Usually its the actual carb body that is leaking, the seam between the main body and the metal end cap will leak... its a heat sensitive leak and will become worse the hotter the carb gets.... This is a very common issue with Picco's.

NO OS plugs DO NOT fit the picco/jammin head. if you made them fit and seal you Bunged up the Button head for sure. ive found the Stock picco plugs are By far the best for this motor.

Default motor

+1 on the Picco plugs as far as this motor it is fast and you can get it at Nitro House for $249 the only problem I have found with Picco motors is the cost of the rebuild, it's cheeper to buy new motors every time lol. parts are expensive. I have had good luck with the EVO 3 carb. Just use Picco plugs like he said and the motor will run great and use the two copper gaskets that come with the plug I think alot of people have tuning issues with this motor and think it's the carb just because they are using the wrong plug. Good luck
