The Evo3 is the newest motor by picco. It's supposed to be a little better than the previous one, which was the P9R evo2...

Sorry i didnt explain my self in the right way,Ofna in the only ones who use the P9 and P7 models to separate the offroad and onroad iether EVO2 or EVO3 ,Picco does not use the P9 only P7 in both offroad and onroad,the EVO3 is the latest version and it has better performance..

the P9 EVO2 is the model before the P9 EVO3...

More q's before i hit the 'buy now' button. 1) Is there any durability issue with this eng? How many gallons before replacing conrod, bearings and piston/cylinder? 2) Is it easy to tune? My past engs are Nova and some of 'em had bogging issue which kind of pain in the a** to ged rid of. 3) How does this eng compare to the new Novas like 359 tuned or IDM version of Picco? Bottom and top end wise? I do have Picco .12 JL Tuned for my tourer and its the best bang for the buck eng i have ever bought and thats also the reason i wanted to try the .21 version of it for my 8th scale onroad. Sorry for the long q's i just want to make sure i make the right choice and not regretting it later on.

I have running Picco engines for five years now and the durability is just as good as any engine out there,as far as the conrod you should replace evey gallon just like any engine ,tunning is great ecause of the plastic carb prevent vaporlock,as far as the peformance you will not dissapointed but compared to the IDM and tuned engines is that they modified for better peformance,just like the JL the Picco EVO3 is the best bang for your buck as well..

1) These engines are fast, watch for the rear bearing going out. TKO bearings work really well and are priced just right. The only problem they have is with the carbs. Replace conrod after break in and then usually every 2 gallons (or whenever you see play in the conrod).

2) As I said, the carbs are sometimes problematic on these motors especially on the bottom end, but look at the IDM engines thread they explain how you seal the needles (IDM motors use the same carb).

3)Piccos are worth the money, novas are expensive. If you can pay a little extra the IDM is a very good choice. They are easier to break in than the novas also.

Best bang for your buck IDM Evo3 (based off Picco Evo3), it's fast as hell, great motor! Don't get me wrong though you can't go wrong with the Picco either, just depends on your budget!
