Default .21 onroad motor under $300

I am looking at the picco p9r or the os 21vz-r either can be bought for under $300 and I am a fan of OS I live really close to the track I race on and plan on going through a lot of gallons on the motor I choose. I want something powerful that holds a good tune. I am experienced with nitro engines but I have been out of the scene for about 5years and want to get your guys input on them.

Thanks

If you want to buy a picco p9r thats a good choice go to Kamakazi they have them on their site for 279 . If you want to try a os ver.2 i have a great deal on one with only break in time. Get ahold of me if interested and i can meet you. Stan

For the money I think you would be happiest using the Picco P9R.
I race at Joyce Park (where you will be racing I believe) and used the OS Ver II engine. It was a good consistent engine, durable and easy to get parts...I definatly noticed it topped out on RPMs down the back straight. It did very well on the infield. I will continue to use this engine but also have rebuilt the Mega DSII that swallowed a glow plug filament.

The Mega DSII is apparently the same as the Picco P9R and I liked the way the Mega DSII ran. I think it had a little more RPM.

I will be racing at joyce again this year, It had been a few years, but I am ready. It sounds like things are where they have been os motor = good tune / no rpm and picco = lower quality than a nova but good power. I think I might pick up the picco.

Thanks,

Mike

You might actually be surprised on how good the quality of the PICCO's.
