That is the first version, the cranks inner diameter is way smaller than the 2nd version JL engine

Is that a good thing or bad thing? Are parts still available?

Default Is this pipe good for the red dot?.

Hi all,

I just got my Serpent 720 with a PICCO/JLR.12 EVO3, RED-DOT and i got with it a SIRIO S12 ''EVO3'' EFRA 2611 pipe.

My question is will this pipe work good with my Picco engine and give it max power performance out of it?.

I`m new to rc cars and have read that this engine is very sensitive to pipes and will not work to its full potential with any pipe.

I just want to know if this pipe is a good match for my engine and will make it run fast.

Thanks for the help.

I have got one of these brand new with a Picco 2651 pipe.
I was planning to run a MTX4R this year for a bit.
Is there any point to run this thing, seeing as it is a bit hard to get parts for it?

Or should I just go out and buy something else?

run it.

Good power and good gas mileage. Just stock up on exhaust gaskets and see if you can find a con rod.
