I have seen someone running MaxPower 7 plugs in a Picco and the engine ran very well, so Nova plugs could be an option.

Another question: How about the gasket engine/header - Are there any changes on the 2012 compared to older Piccos? Can I use the Picco specific gaskets from zeppin which are sold by mushroom?

Any thoughts?


Thanks and best regards!
Nova plugs don't work that well in Picco engines.

Use either Picco / Vox/ Sonic, Sirio or OS plugs.

The header gaskets are the same as always, no changes. Plenty of inexpensive alternatives like Team Titan, Xceed or RCBay.de available

Hi guys

I am very interested in 2012 Picco TORQUE .21 Onroad EDO Modified engine, some questions I hope I can get answers from you.

1, Can I use ODonnell, OS or SIRIO plug in the picco engine?

2, I use 25% nitro fuel, what shim thickness I should have?

3, Can I use nova based tuned pipe with the engine?

yes I have used both on the EDO!

the 2058 will give you better bottom end with much louder noise. The 2069 picco pipe delivery better overall performance, reasonable bottom end good mileage and lot more top end then 2058

2058 is a Sirio pipe that's been used for on- and off road.

Istill feel the 2033 pipe with the medium Novarossi header is the best pipe for the Torque engines.

No, I use the medium conical header with 6 fins (41016)

We run the Torques between 95 - 105C on very hot days up to 115C

With drilling 3 extra 1mm holes in the edge of the pipe you can!
