What size track will you be running on mostly? does it have long straights ? short runs to jumps ? etc. Right now i am running a jammin jpx .21 /jp-3 in my buggy & truggy & it works good in both. People have said they don't last very long but only time will tell. I have almost 1 gallon on the buggy & it's just starting to come alive & making good power. Bought them at a amain for 229.00 Each plus a coupon for 25.00 off so for the money very good.

The 086 pipe will hurt the low end in the truggy 053 would be better all around pipe.

Go Tech 5 port .21 with dynamite 086 stock clutch for truggy. Go Tech 3 or 7 port race .21 for buggy 3 port 086 again and 7 port 053 stock clutch. for $500 you can get your engines and pipes. and they will perform with any other mills out there that are more $

poor little picco's get no respect..I'll guess those of use who know will keep em all for ourselves.

Jammin JPX.21 is by far the best engine out for the price. Couple it to a 053 pipe with double bent manifold and you are now cooking with gas. Complete set-up $250

Picco Evo 3 for both. If you shop it right you can find one for around $200. I got a pair for $185ea.

Drop the sleeve height for truggy (it has a shim, pull it out) will give you some more torque for the truggy.

Combine with JP3 pipe and Byron's 25% fuel...I'm getting 8:45+ run time out of this combo on the heavier Jammin' chassis (buggy and truggy)

the picco is underrated for sure put a werks 2013 pipe with the smooth header my buggy with the big restrictor would get around 10 minutes and my jammin x2 truggy same pipe and restrictor over 10 minutes

ok
OS NINJA GO TECH LRP
.21 is enough for buggy and .28 is good for truggy
so what about these engines for both buggy and truggy
and i think jp3 will work for both buggy and truggy
what about jp4-5-6 are those good


the track which i will run on will be more of curves and less of straight line


CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT IS ALL THESE
LOW END, BOTTOM END ETC
PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT IT AS I AM NEW TO THIS FIELD

Get a pair of Reedy .21s, V-spec power for a lot less money. Should be available in a week or so... AE/Thunder Tiger 2035 pipes or 053 pipes
