I found info on both! The c6 is alot more than im willing to spend rite now and i do not want a v spec.. About $260 is the highest i can go rite now!
I love my C6, but it is very expensive..... However it is a very refined well balanced engine, softer off the bottom with a great midrange and top end... The OS Speed is very well balanced, good bottom, good mid and good top, but once again very pricey..... For under $260.00 the Picco is a horse, massive bottom end, strong mid and good top...In a buggy the Picco may be heavy handed, but in a truggy it works amazing...

The Picco's have a hard hitting power delivery.... Some people do not like that...in a buggy it can sometimes be overwhelming and cause excessive tire spin...... However some people really like that feel, so its a matter of preference.....

Just driving smooth and being easy on the trigger can do wonders.....FYI all of these current race engines are pretty equal on the straights, the main differences are in their power delivery and feel... A Picco feels abrupt and snappy, they require very little trigger movement to make the motor bark... A irio on the other hand feels very mild and requires much more trigger movement to make the engine bark.... If your used to driving a Sirio a picco will feel like a lightswitch, either on or off...... However if your used to driving a Picco a Sirio will feel gutless and dead on the bottom end.........With a Picco the engine will make very strong power at low RPM's with very little trigger input.. If you drag the Sirio vs the Picco they pretty much run side by side... Yet when you drive them they feel night and day different....... They both work well, but each one will please a different taste..... I find on slick track conditions the smoother engines work better, and on high bite or muddy tracks the harder hitting engines work better..... Also if you like to slowly bleed into the trigger a Sirio works better, if your a blipper a Picco works better.....
