This one? Picco P7-EVO3 PART #51216

http://ofna.com/eng-picco-evo3.html#P7

I was runing it on a Hyper 9

I sold the buggy and kept the engine to run it on my Kyosho Inferno GT until I got DQD for running an illegal motor for the class

Over all I can tell you that this motor is very good on fuel consumption, I was running 20% nitro only and had enough power both on buggy ang GT cars. I ran almost 2 gals thru it and the engine is still very very tight! sometimes I have to warm up the engine with a heat gun before even trying to start it.
I don't like that it comes with standard plug, but the turbo button is available. for $289.00 on eBay I think it's a bit on the expensive side... I'm not sure if it's faster than a Vspec but def. lasts longer.
