+1 this motor is no slouch sure it's not a vspec or anything like that but for a beginner who wants controlable power this engine gets it done.

id get the picco...it's fast enough and is very controllable. It has bottom but not too much and the top speed is respectable when tuned right...

I would not get a Mac 28 they are very low quality engines, and in many cases they never run correctly

Bit of a bump guys but looking to get this engine tomorrow. Any probs?

Only problem I've heard of is the carb, because it's plastic I presume. I personally think it will be good as to remove any chance of the damn vapour lock.

For use on my Lightning Stadium PRO-R truggy, bashing/fun. Want a .21.

Better than a O.S. .21 VG?

Thanks!

A few guys around here tried the OS VG but no one got good life out of it. I'd risk the Picco before I would try the VG.
