It is a Picco, and I love my Trinity Picco XP12. If you have access to a Novarossi slide carb, install it instead of the Picco carb. Easier tuning and MUCH more Power.

Default Orion Wasp = Picco?

So is the Orion Wasp .12 ROAR basically a PICCO engine licensed to Orion?

Yes, Picco makes motors for Trinity and Orion, they then stamp the motors with trinity or Orion's logo and ship it to them.

Wait for the new 04' lineup of picco and orion .12's and .21's. They will have the much needed carb updates and all new internals and with new case. I heard that they will also go to a std size crank, from the smaller odd sizex one that they are using now, but that was a while ago that the new crank idea was being tossed around, so I'm not sure if it made it to the prototype stage.
