Is the 2033 still available? It was my favorite, but it seems Picco no longer makes that pipe.

Hi Uriah,

as far as I know, it's not made anymore, but dealers and distributors still have them in stock.

It's a great pipe, but a bt on the loud side.

It looks like most manufacturers from Italy have gone to Hipex for their pipes....

I don't know if the 2033 will be too much for the new 2013 long stroke.

Nova 2015 seems to work with every engine ...
Haha!! Thanks Stefan, my mistake 2069!!

What is the mileage like on the 2033, a bit on the high side?

Reds are only offering 2069 for both XL and M7T, must be some merrit in that.

Mileage is ok. I think the 2033 is too loud to be legal. It hurts your ears if your on the pipe side of the car marshaling.

Default 2013 Winter Nats

Hello Everyone!

For all of those who attended the 2013 WinterNats, wow! I enjoyed seeing everyone and was glad to see that even if our racing wasn't at its best, we all seemed to have a good time.

I hope that everyone came over and spoke with Edo. He was happy to see all of us representing his brand. I hope you left this race with more knowledge about your Picco engine than you came with. After all, he comes to help us all!

Congrats to Loran Whiting for being the first female to make a WinterNats "A" main. That was an awesome battle at the end of the 1/10 Sedan "B" main to win the final bump-up spot to the “A”. She never loses her cool! Well, at least she doesn't show it!! LOL

Congrats to Mike Swauger and Billy Bowerman as well for taking the TQ's in 1/8 Open and 1/8 Masters, respectfully. Mike finished 2nd in a down to the wire 1/8 Open finish that was second to none. It was one of the best races seen in many years. Mike also finished 3rd in 1/10 Sedan and Dirk Wischnewski (first visit to track) took second.
Also, Kudos to Billy - he led the 1/8 Masters race for 40 straight minutes, only making one mistake that took him completely out of the race. Great runs to both!
Again Thanks to those who attended from Team Picco!
Tory Skyers, Anthony Schimizzi, Denise Clark, Guner Mehet
Jeff, Loran, Foster Whiting
Nikoli Yap, James Copfield, Thomas Nichols
Jason Conley, Mike Pulfer, Doug Filo
Art Carbonell, David Larry

.4 out of the box is perfect. Only add .1 shim to change if you go to 25%

just measure the copper head shims all together. out of the box is 0.4mm amount of shims, u want to add a 0.1mm shim to get the overall to 0.5mm on 25% nitro, if your running the 16% that u stated just leave the head shimming alone

Hello everyone, just return home from one of the best and most competitive races in the USA. I finally had a chance to sit down to thank everyone. I would like to thank the Ft Myers crew for another outstanding job and cannot wait tell next year if still racing.
I was a little saddened by the rain that came down, but I am sure everyone else was also. We lost a day and a half of racing so it made it more difficult for most to but on their best performance. We all now the top drivers always stand out more than some of us, but that racing and that is why I keep coming back, to get better and have fun, screw the FUN, I’m too competitive, LOL.
I would like to thank KEVCO / PICCO Racing engines for some great power all weekend. I was really pleased with the new engines. I had plenty of power and great fuel mileage running at temps around 215f in 1/8 and 1/10 scale classes. The great thing about the engines is it doesn’t take long to break these engines in to go racing with AWESOME POWER..
I started 4th in the C main in touring but had a really good car in both mains I was in. I had nothing to lose since I was in the C main so I made some drastic change on the car after it rained. I went softer than anyone I saw in touring but I like the way the car felt in practice that morning. I left the set up alone and hoping it was good enough to compete in the main. I was fortunate to win the C main and move up.
I moved up to the B main and had a 2 lap lead at the 14 min mark but then blew a rear diff out. I blew a diff earlier in qualifying and was not smart enough to put alum gears in the car. Knowing that the traction was at its highest and that I have ever been on, I put the plastic back in, shame on me, learned by mistakes.
In 8th scale I was also leading the master class from the start to the 35 min mark and that was exciting, but then old age settled in, a few little mistakes throughout the race but nothing to hurt the car. I then hit the chicane and then hit the sweeper, the car was good until I received a blow while upside down on the back straightaway and that finished the car with less than 5 min left in the race. Had fun as always and sometimes frustrated, but as long as I learn by my mistakes I will keep improving, hopefully, lol.
.
I would like to give a special thanks to my wife Tracy for having great pit stops and I fell she is one of best at what she does in the pits for me and all the passion that she has for the hobby and for me to do well. She is my best friend in the world and love her so much. I am very lucky old man to have her by my side at the races. I would like to thank Kevin, Doug, Edo and Christian for all their help.
.
I would like to thank, RC AMERICA-X-RAY, MATRIX TIRES USA, KO PROPO, KOSMIC FUEL, PICCO-KEVCO RACING, ACORN RACING USA, UP-GRADE RC and MIKE SWAUGER for all their help at every race I attend.
.
Thanks everyone for your support
Billy
