A slower engine is also easyer to tune.

considering all things get a picco p9. it is by far the easist motor to break in. it is realable it is fast. it break in within 8 tanks of fuel. no other motor other than a picco based motor can say that. the closest is the sirio but the break in is so crazy and there are way to many rules to make sure you dont blow it up. and compared to everybody else motor you can buy 2 to 1. they are all over so cal and people love them. the rb s would be a good second choice it is reliable it is ok on power it is a 13mm crank so you can get more run time. all the rest of the motors breakin can be a bear. nova rossi's and ninjas take at lease a gallon of fuel for breakin if you rush it they dont do very well

PICCO P9 will do what you want it to do.

Yes, on a fast engine the "sweet point" for a good setting is smaller and the engine will run more critical if not tuned right. Slower engines have a wider powerband and a slightly off-tuned setting will still give performance.

I just started running 1/8 this summer, I started with an 05 Evolva w/Max power .21 it ran okay, when I bought a new Evolva 007, yes I became addicted I put in a NS .21 the mule motor that comes with the 359 package.
This motor is fast and very linear ( easy to drive )
I became an A main driver at our club, it's a rocket....

I can't wait to see how the brand new 359 will run next season.

Remember one thing, we do have something called a carb restrictor... LOL

Good luck picking the right motor, stick with a Nova Rossi based engine, you will not be disappointed.
