HeY!!!


maybe one that aint on there it's a .21 from o.s. it's the rg, and only like about $135-$145 and it's just as fast as the .26 about so yeah... and it's well worth your money.

The collari is the best engine on that list then the picco. The other two are not going to last as long.
And Josh85r is right, the OS. RG is a good choice, it's especially easy to tune.

For $220 you could get a Collari B3, much better bottom end.
RB's are known for good top end speed and long life (there's an oxymoron...) but a finicky about clutch setup.

Greddy, get the Collari. It's by far the best quality of the engines listed and will outlast all of them. The european engines have better chroming in the bearings and sleeves due to there being less restrictions on what they're allowed to do.
A Picco P7r costs $299.

The Ofna Picco Maxx is meant as a replacement engine for the Traxxas engines. Keep this in mind..

Why not a Mach or Sportwerks .26 or an XTM .247?
my .247's piston and sleeve got replaced at 9.5ish gallons, and would still RUN, and makes more than enough power for a 1/8 buggy.
