Nice.

They've had a tapered low end needle for a while and used it over in the .26+/- sport engines...glad to see they've finally put one over in the race engine.

This comment cracked me up though. The guy is right about a 1-piece cooling better; but acting like it's some new idea

It does not take long until we see a one piece head/combustion chamber, it is the only way to cool the engine at its maximum.

Fact is, the Picco is an amazing engine for the price. The Evo3 is $250 at amain, I would expect the Evo4 to fall in a similar price range.

Lets see, the Picco costs about half as much
As a Speed. The Picco engines are known to
have crankshafts that are made from some of
the toughest metal there is and will outlast any
O.S. crankshaft made, coated or not. So I would
have to give "The Best Bang For The Buck" award
to the Picco. Don't get me wrong, I own a JX .21,
which shares some of the same internal parts that
are in the Speed. It is one great engine, but I know
it will never last for as many gallons as my Picco based
engines without spending some serious money on replace-
ment parts. I know for a fact that there is no, the best,
nitro engine. Thats why I so have many engines in my arsonal.

I just got back my Jammin 21 Plus from customer service ! Less than one gallon on this engine with orginal plug, and thier is a problem with the conrod and crank, not even blown up , just noticed from first tank of break in, a little free play. I preheated ,and have ran nitro for years, and had great luck with all the engines that I have had. This is my third Jammin, and I think it will be a self queen from here, becuase they wont do any thing for me. I will be giong back to Novarossi .

That was my next thought also. See what he can make out of this engine, Just have to go get the engine from my local hobby store. He also is very upset about the sevice that we received. And knows how well I take care of my race program .
