Man I had no idea that picco had such a big following. I havent seen a picco engine at my local tracks here in CA for over a year. Its all OS, Nova and a little Werks. I am sure there are a fee Go's and others mixed in there but I cant say I have seen a Picco in awhile.

I ran the Orion CRF part of this summer witch is Picco made. Its was the fastest engine Ive ever ran. Bottom, mid, top, it had it all. Really reliable too. Definitely faster than the +4 I run now. Fuel mileage is a different story

The new Jammin JPX .21 plus is an insane Mill right out of the box ( Picco ) for those of you who have never tried one at right around $200 it is surely a beast!

Hi.

What plugs do you use in your Orion, LRP, Nosram, Jamin (Picco Evo 2, right?)?

My friend ran 2 of these motors this year and they where junk as far as I am concerned. Out of the entire year he maby had 3 weekends he wasn't chasing a tune or dealing with flame out. Fuel Milage was a JOKE. He was always pitting at 7 min with almost nothing in the tank. Not to mention about 1.5 gallons after break in he cracked a piston in one of them. All I am gona say is if you want to stay with a low buck mill the new Werks B5 is probobly the best thing out there right now. But if you can spare the cash go with a +4, RB Killer 9, OS V-spec or Ninja JX. You wont be sorry you did. Those are all mid price engines that with care will last a LONG time and have great useable power added to great run times and easy tuning.

The only thing I can say for the orion CRF is that when it ran well it had alot of power. But thats all I can say and it was a rare sight.

We have no issues with Picco's like your describing, and we've been running them for years........ However we also have experience with Picco and know a few little tricks that your friend likely doesn't know....Your friends issues are from lack of experience, not from them being a faulty engine......

To bad for him, mine was always dialed. I always pitted at 7:30-8:30, I hardly even touched the needles, never flamed out, never gave me one problem...

OS engines are awesome... Integra runs one of my modified V-Specs in buggy and does very well with it...Its very reliable, tunes easy and is good on fuel, its also extremely smooth and fast...... But we still prefer the feel of the Picco in Truggy, even tho we have the option of several other engines including OS....
