Default LRP Z.12R

Any opinions on this motor? The numbers seem capable enough, 1.58hp @ 42000 rpm. I just haven't seen or heard any opinions about it.

The crankcase looks like a Picco. Where are the LRP engines made?

Heres the original thread:
http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.p...&highlight=LRP

I believe LRP engines are Picco-based. They are very similar to Mega ZX-12 engines but with a better conrod.

At the moment, this engine holds the record in the dyno by nitrodyne systems. An amazing 1.11HP in stock form. While the next engine is a Murnan Modified Sirio Evo III

Conventional Picco exhaust outlet? (smaller diameter than Novarossi's)
