+1 you beat me to it.

Just reiterate piccos are nice engines. I am very pleased with mine and I am a NOVA based guy. I think the world of NOVA based engines. I just happen to get a picco based engine in a trade. It made me think to try one. I am glad I did. It is a good price engine for $225 for an EVO2 or $250 for an EVO3 you can't beat it. I think bang for the buck they are better than GO's. Not to mention easier to tune than a GO. I give GO's high marks for pricing and performance. To many people stuck on if don't cost this much it can't perform at this level.

I've always had great luck with picco's. Easy to tune holds it very very well.

Since I got my 1st picco based engine a Trinity platinum A. Drake. I have since aquired 2 EVO2 off roads and 1 on road. Found them to be very reliable and at good price. I get 10+ mins out of mine. Of course you can squeeze it for more by leaning it out.
I run nothing but picco i love the power, and it is easy to tune. But what venturi's you using. I'm running at 220 but only getting 7min a tank could it be i only have a gallon of fuel thruogh it?

Sleeve is 100% identical to the EVO 2, the ports are not bigger.....The sleeve spacer is where they are getting a little more power.....regardless its a dam nice engine and likely one of the most powerful .21's on the market today !!!

I really like mine.

Running a JP3; on *short* tight tracks I get 8:45+ run time (very tight tracks) with the fixed 8mm carb.

Temps out nicely around 225.

Runs GREAT on a McCoy # 8; Nova Special #6; or Nova ULTRA #7 (gold stem) once you have 70+ deg. ambient temps.

Does he have a dyno to back up his results? Only AB and EB have dynos in the US. Everyone else it just guessing. How can you tune without a dyno to compare results? Lets not start a war. Adam was in XRC last year, plus he tunes cars and bikes. Do some resaerch before trying to flame some one. I have facts, to back my talk. If you need some dyno sheets I can steer you in the right direction. Can you provide any of "Maximos " work to prove it's legit. I'm not bashing just asking for facts. I dont believe in word of mouth. Thats for the playground. I sign up for this forum back in october never used it. I hope everyone isnt like this.Mine is better than yours. Kids.Just toys.
