Default 2010 Picco EVO 4 and P3-R EVO TURBO

What is up, I cant find the new 2010 Picco motors anywhere. The new 3 port turbo motor looks great and the P-7 EVO 4 looks killer. Any one know where to get them. Thanks

P7-R EVO 4

The new P3-R EVO Turbo

Nitrohouse will be the first place in the US to know anything about them.

Picco appears to have stepped up their game in the offroad market for 2010. They've always made super durable engines, but the carbs have been their holdup on/off through the years.

The EVO 3 .21 was a SUPER well rounded engine. They always make great torque.

why didn't they put the idle adjustment on top of the carb? and I am glad to see the p3-r is finally gonna make it to the states(been wanting to try one now I can) I had the rtr picco 3 port which was modded by brian over at protwistermods and that thing screamed and it idled with the best of em...it was pretty fast even as a non-modded motor and lasted several gallons as well...I used it for at least 3-4 and it was used when I got it...I think it had a total of around 6-7 gallons on it...great engine

They're standard "Picco-Picco's" haha.

Nitrohouse brings in the standard "Picco" label too; not just the Ofna Picco's...which aren't the same on many different levels...not just port configuration..

Default EVO 4

I guess Picco is giving Ofna a hard time so they are not going to get the EVO 4 any time soon. I guess I will just order one from over seas.

In the past it has been Ofna giving Picco a hard time for inexpensive budget engines.

I'm guessing Picco finally pulled the reigns tighter and said they weren't going to do certain things any more.

They brought in the Evo3 so I'm sure we'll see them over here at some point, prob. just not when they first come out.

The motors are nothing alike, to start with that is a 2 piece head like the Reedy, the chrome part is a finned head button and the motor you are talking about in the second picture is a 3 port, but yes the head does look alot like the Jammin. the only thing they have in common is who they are made by and the bearing size.

In reality we have to wait till a modder get's his hands on one and measures up the timing #'s to be sure....but like most piccos they have small variances from 1 to the next so most likely it will be Very Similar but have its own characteristics.
