Default Is this a Picco?

I saw this while surfing the net.



It looks like a Picco Evo motor not sure if it is Evo3 or Evo4 but most likely Evo3.

So, I was right, its a Picco JL marketed by Trinity as the Drake Edition. Its the same motor with a bigger head for offroad

i think that you didn't even check the link.
it is a touring engine that is based in picco evo2's.

so YR4Dude.this engine is based in the evo 2.it is an old one.but i don't think that will not have some good power.

Thats what I said, a original JL, which makes it an evo2.

Find the original thread on the JL and see who started it.

According to the description it says its a "Touring" motor. So that sounds like its an onroad motor. Just wondering if it is mechanically equal to the Evo3.

Both EVO 2 and EVO 3 are Fast motors! on the JL series the difference between the 2 and 3 are the I.D. of the crankshaft, 3 being bigger!

I'm considering it for the parts just to keep my current Evo3 running.

You can buy 2, have the rods, and have backups motors! Or you can switch the heads and sell them at a profit. I have a JL head sitting around here if you need it

The Drake edition are the older EVO 1 version, the Rods are even weaker than for the 2 and 3, it comes with the "TICK, TICK, TICK".............................. sound of a time bomb
