The Picco 2669 pipe is the matched pipe for this engine.

Mike Swauger Dominates the 2013 Airtronics race in Southern California in 1/8th and 1/10th scale with PICCO EMX Power engines. The talent that came to the Airtronics race is a show case of what the Nationals is going to be like. The Airtronics race had most of the best drivers in the USA come to do battle.

Congratulations to Mike Swauger and PICCO engines for winning the A main event in 1/8th scale at the Airtronics race in Southern California. Mike TQ the class and won by 2 laps over Palolo Morganti.

Hello everyone, here is some more awesome news about the PICCO engines having the horse power and making qualifying run time.

Last weekend saw the opening round of the new International GP series take place in Fiorano. The race was scheduled for Saturday and Sunday but due to the bad weather forecast all the action was moved to Saturday only. Unfortunately some of the finals, including the GP1 (1/8th expert) had to be cancelled due to the rain. The organizers based the results on the qualifying times and so Alberto Picco took the win, as one of the few to run 5 minutes without a stop. Dario Balestri took 2nd and Capricorn team mate and 9-time World Champion Lamberto Collari was 3rd.

PICCO has a new addition to their product line for you racers, the plug case. Nice plastic case to hold your plugs when you need them in an emergency at the track. Keep it your pocket or pit bag.


COMING SOON- WWW.KEVCORACING.COM

Just want to ask, how's the bearing life for the recent Picco engines? I ve been away from nitro for a few years now and wanted to start again. I used to have Picco based engines few years back and one thing I hate was the bearings, even if it was new the bearings has too much tolerance (crankshaft has lots of play). I hope the newer models has good bearings with tighter tolerance like in OS coz I m looking at Picco lines as my first choice.

tolerance has little to do with bearing quality, but with heat range. Tolerance can give you horsepower though.

Hello dameetz, to be honest the bearing life is as good as any top engine manufactures today. Keep your engine up with the proper maintenance with after run oil and tune your engines properly without being on over lean side and the bearing will last. There have been no problems that I have heard of with the bearing falling naturally. The two engines I have found with bearing failure from our customers, one had a ton of rust inside the engine and the other motor over lean in about 1 gallon and that is not the bearings fault. Hope this helps your question. The engines are good honestly, they have great power, top and bottom and real good fuel mileage.
