I've decided to use Picco Power in my 966 so I hope someone in the U.S. picks them up.

Does anyone know the differences between these engines and the EVO4? There has been no report on red rc or anything about them.

Default Balanced ?

A small question for you all, I have seen the trend with Novarossi based engines the use of weight to balance but I have not seen this trend in Picco based, is it that Picco are balanced as is and is not necessary ??
