Default Ofna Picco JLR Red Dot

Hey, I am looking at the (Ofna) Picco JLR .12 Red Dot and had a couple of questions, does anyone currently run this motor and if so I have noticed that you can see the ring of the sleeve from a space between the head and the crank case. I only can find one pic of this motor on the web can anyone send me pics of diffrent angles. Thanks http://www.ofna.com/eng-jlr-red-dot.html

The OFNA Picco JLR does not need to be touched to be fast. Touching the motor can actually harm its performance according to some.

Many many people here on the west coast are running this motor in their sedans, and it is definitely ballistic. People who run these motors always leave with the impression of WOW on their faces after leaving the drivers stand.

We will have to wait for the Ninja .12 to be released but as it stands now the JLR Red Dot is the best .12 motor for the money out there without a doubt in my mind.

Robert you live here in the South Florida area so I wanted to ask where you find Werks fuel or do you just order it from Werks? I wouldn't mind trying it and comparing it to my current fuel which is Byron's.

Hey Robert,
If you can, find out when Uriah will release his modified version, and what the price will be?! I'm a fan of OFNA and race one of their cars. It would be great to finally run a competitive engine distributed by them.
Also, great job racing at the winter nats. Best of luck this season
Regards

I have seen the motor for $180.00 at several locations.
