Default Easier motor to tune?

I'm getting kind of tired of constantly spending three hours when I goto a track trying to get my Picco G1 XP-21 to work good. Can anyone recommend a motor thats fairly easy to tune and also good performing?

I've actually thought about that idea. What carbs would work? I've heard nova rossi carbs might work, but i'd like to get a definite answer before i go spending money on a new carb.

I agree. That engine may be the easiest .21 to tune that one can find

gotta go with OS on easy to tune, if you are within 1 turn of optimum it'll run others out there if you aren't within 1/8 of optimum it is just a pig
