The Kangaroo is a GREAT Engine!!! And for the price it's even better!! You can't go wrong with it. Get the tuned, it's faster than stock!

The Kangaroo modded right will run with the piccos, and should have alittle more punch out of the corner.

If you can't find a Tuned version of an engine, youc ould always send it over to AB Mods or to Murnan, not only can they turn it into the tuned version but make it even BETTER than the tuned version! Booyah, +1 me ppl!

the idm motors are gaining in popularity in the uk at the moment! i ran the .12 motor last year, very very good motor, i picked a new .21 idm motor up yesterday, but 3 of my team mates finished the 8 round uk national series in the top 10 last year, pete hastings finishing 2nd, i believe the winner was running a picco mega too.
idm motors are more expensive than picco because they are based on the standard motor and modded, to what extent im not sure but i will ask the question.
the idm .21 was the only motor that didnt have fuel economy problems also

can wait to give it a try now

Default picco evo 4

picco also makes the VOX engine that motonica has released.
very smooth very fast, and it has a billet machined piston like the flash special

Picco engines are not cheaply made. They are very high quality and last.

Picco, Mega (Exceed) and IDM...

I have all 3 of them, EVO3 that is, not the EVO4 (yet)

Picco is Picco.
Mega shares the same internals as Picco, but the crankcase is different.
IDM shares the same internals and crankcase as Picco, but has more work done to the crankshaft.
Also piston and liner are better selected, atleast, the 2 IDM engines I have, compared to the Picco EM I also have.
IDM is there only in modified version, while Picco and Mega are there also in "basic" version, the IDM should be compared to the EM versions of Picco and Mega.....

P9R never meant 9 poorts, it was just a name OFNA gave the Picco P7R EVO2....

The Factory tuned version's of the Piccos are a better fit piston/liner.

These engines are very nice and very smooth to drive.
