A Picco is likely the most powerful .21 your going to find, many complain that its too powerful ......

run the vspec. i pull from people all day with that in my truggy. plus you get great gas mileage. it sucked but my connection rod blew after 3/4th of a gallon. but i sent the engine to os and havin them look at it because i maintained and tuned it right so i know it wasnt my fault BUT if they dont i will still buy another vspec because it preformed that great

the vspecs and ninja jx's are both good choices for a truggy, the .28 is just to powerful, will spinning tires while the .21 is allready going, i havent seen anyone do good with a .28

Try a .21, if you find it becomes a limiting factor because you have mad drivin' skills then upgrade a .28. I run a $99 Go 3-port in mine, a few others at my local track do as well, no complaints.

i agree with you both Picco or the Jpx.21 all you need, that have all around power from low to top end, as for fuel mileage i get 12 mins on a tank in my crt x2 w/14t clutch bell

I had to make the same call. Bottom line is you don't see pro's running .28's, so .21's must be faster. I ended up going with a Vspec and 2050 pipe. The 2050 should help me out with Torque on a heavy truggy.
