I don't get what the problem would be...I've always just used the Losi collet on these engines?

That's what I've been trying to tell him. Like you I've never had a problem with any .12 threaded shaft engine.

I know some engines may or may not have funny parts or need something different to use it but I've ran a bunch of these engines...it should work fine?

The picco motor uses a differeny size collet. I bought a picco speed motor off ebay that had a collet on it. when I went to put it in the car i wanted to use a new collet. I grabbed a new one I had in a drawer that fit my os motors and it wouldn't work. you need to get a collet for a 5mm shaft.

Ahh! If you had only said Picco in the beginning we could have answered your problem. Get thee to thine LHS and purchase a 5mm collet (yes the split type) and be on your way.

I and everyone was under the impression that you had a Losi Mach engine from a RTR (or even an OS or any non-Picco).
