Default O.S. V-spec vs. Picco evo2

I am currently running the O.S. v-spec but I have heard lots of good things about the picco evo 2 and I am curious about wich one is better.

The SEARCH tab is very useful

If it was me I would stick with the OS, because of fuel milage alone. The picco's are powerful, but get very poor runtime like 7 min.

Default re poor fuel mileage?

i have had 3 picco evo 2 run a 2013 piupe in a hyper 8.5 5 minute qual half tank used with the medium carb restrictor ran it until it died out of fuel was just around 9 minutes guess it depends on the tuner

WOW thats the first time I've heard that one.

There are numerous threads about each of those engines. You just have to do some research.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/search.php?searchid=5395075

Read a bit. You will get much better results this way, than asking people's opinion between 2 engines.

Most people will be biased towards what they run anyway, and you will just get a bunch of opinions.

At the bottom of the first page of v-spec results there is even a thread comparing the os to the jammin jpx(picco evo 2 copy).

I have had both engines and with the right pipe and carb insert you can get the same run time from the Evo as the V-spec..My V-spec was a nightmare from day one (long story, I'll skip it) the Picco was $100 cheaper, makes the same power lasts longer and I found it to be easier to tune. The V-spec tunes slightly different as it prefers a slightly rich HSN and a slightly lean LSN as opposed to most engines that tune the opposite. I also found OS's customer service to completely suck, and Picco seems much more inclined to help their customers and any problems that may arise.

The evo's like The Ofna brand 053 pipe with the double bent manifold and a 7 mm restrictor. I can tell you from experience with both engines that you will be much happier with the Picco, and the Picco will last longer..

I am sure my experience with the V-spec was isolated, but I will never buy another OS based engine again as I think their quality control and customer service are severely lacking

It helps to use the advanced search feature of the search tab. Change the criteria to only titles so you don't just get a bunch of posts with the term mentioned, and search in the section of the forum where what you are looking for belongs, in this case it was nitro offroad. Otherwise you will end up with a bunch of for sale ads. There is a TON of info hidden in previous threads. Hope that helps.

eric the v-spec is kinda on a different level than the picco both good motors but the o.s. is more expensive and you will get a little more power and fuel milage than the picco.

& the piccos on average will give you double the life span with less runtime.If you run 15 min mains either will do with the picco being cheaper by a set of wheels or more for the motor pipe combo.If you run 20 min mains get the OS & do it with one pit stop.

After 5 or so different Picco motors, I cant say there bad. But I feel that the OS's are just in a different league. My Speed treats me well, and my dads standard V spec has been good to him.

You cant go wrong with the Picco or the OS.

Choose one, and race

Picco all the way, Run time is a matter of tune, restrictor and trigger control. I get great run times out of my Picco's in both my buggy and my truggy. O.S. in a different league than Picco huh . There V-spec and EVO 2 or 3 are in the exact same league. Picco being more reliable and exhibiting better longevity than the O.S.. O.S. is easier to tune which has always been one the +'s of there engines. However Picco is quite easy to tune as well.
