I'll be bluntly honest...

I run the Picco P-7R Evo in my 8ight.

It is the best engine I've run to date. It feels like an electric motor.. very smooth and linear.. A little lacking on the bottom end, but for my track I geard down a tooth.. Pulls very hard from mid to top.

I've wondered why I dont see more of them around...

Ive got a NIB Vspec that I wont get around to running (the picco is that good) but it'll go in the truggy when it's released.

I dont think I've had to touch the needles on this engine in about 3 weeks..

Search around on RCTech.. People let these go for cheap!

The Picco line is a very under rated engine. It is a very inexpensive engine for alot of what you get. I put the Picco line up on the same line as my Nova Rossi engines, sometimes at about half the cost.

I have a couple of these engines on order already.
