Default Picco Evo 9 .21

Im planing on getting this engine and was wondering if anybody has tried it. I like the price, but if its not up to par with other engines, I might consider spending some more cash.

I'm also interested in the engine and specifications as well. Also, does anybody have pics of the sleeve too?

I have these engine on my 960 its freaking fast, its almost same as fast of my DSII mega although they are both made by picco not bad for an engine that is less than $300 and can also compete with 35plus21 and Sirio with right tuning.

I have been running this motor since the end of last year and I have been very happy with the motors peformance. The carb tunes easy and I have not had any issues with durability. For the price, I think people will be very happy.

What would be a great pipe to run with this motor? I'm planning on rebuilding my Nova TOP with the R1 WC P/S/C set, but would like another motor. Also, how would it hold up at a track as big as 301 raceway in Maryland?

It won't be a problem running it in a big track.

It will easily run 5 to 6 minutes on a single tank, Mega MF pipe and 2015 pipe runs well with this engine, and you only use PICCO plugs.

TK- Sounds good! I'll definately consider it as I right now I can't dish out $500+ on a motor for the 8th. Thats enough for car parts, 10 sets foams, bodies and engine parts.
