Default KO Propo 2013 Sedan Final results

Congrats to Iron Man Billy Bowerman, who bumped from the D main to tack second place in the finals!

Word is Swauger was leading the race from early on, only to run out of fuel at some point late

I would first like to thank Kevin from KEVCO/PICCO Racing for all his help and support. There is not an engine company in the USA with the support or care like KEVIN/PICCO engines has, I guarantee that.

We had support at the KO race and I am glad you racers that had any questions or concerns came over to me and asked. I will help at any time so please come over and say high if you want.

The KO race was a mini National brewing.

I would like to Congratulate Mike Swauger for his TQ and awesome WIN in 1/8th scale. Mike had flamed out in the A main Sedan that cost him the win, but that’s racing, so again congratulate again.

The Nationals in L.A. is going to be awesome so all you PICCO family get your plane tickets because it’s going to be good one.

I would again like to congratulate and thanks to all the PICCO drivers for coming to the KO race; you guys showed that the PICCO engines are here to stay with power and fuel mileage. There has been many drivers here in the USA that that has never made fuel mileage in a qualifier and now has raised those guys up a few spots because of that, GREAT JOB PICCO RACING ENGINES.

We had 4 drivers in the A main in 1/8 scale and Congratz to them, it was a tough field to make the A main (Mike Swauger, Jason Conely, Billy Boaerman and Christian Lopez)
We also had 2 drivers in the A main Sedan and congratz to them to make the A main. (Mike Swauger and Billy Bowerman)

Thank you to all
Billy Bowerman

yes you can, but I have never tried back to back so I don't know if the heat range or wire size is different..

Thank you for coming over to the PICCO family..

Billy are you positive on this? I thought the taper/taper length was different on the picco plugs and nova plugs wouldn't work. I may be wrong but i thought that was the case

They will work, you just might not get the same performance out of the engine using the nova plug,. If you use the nova black plugs they are a little longer and what you are doing is taking away volume in the button head that can take the performance away, if you use GRP or some of the chrome nova plugs those are pretty much with in thousands of the same length, but again you might not being getting the whole potential performance of that PICCO engine. No disrespect to you at all, but please buy the PICCO plug and put in the engine, you will be happier.

Thanks Billy
