This is the Ofna/Picco .26 (4.27cc) Max JL Red Dot Engine with Pull-Starter and is intended for use with Traxxas T-Maxx or Revo Monster trucks.

Picco has worked it's modifying magic again, applying it to the already proven line of MAX engines. The same lightening of the crank and trademark red putty that were used in the highly successful JL off-road and on-road Red-Dot engines have been applied here to increase performance dramatically. Use of this same technology combined with big block power to tear up the competition, pop wheelies and soar through the air with the kind of speed you never thought was possible.

Just dropped this thing in my revo platinum. It takes the revo one step closer to the edge. LOL I don't know of a faster engine that still uses the ez-start. This Engine was really tight with loads of compression. Most impressed I have been with an engine in a while. SIDE NOTE: If you are upgrading from the .26 max you will see a difference. Also you need to run at least 25% nitro vs 20% in the max.

Picco engines,imo are right up there with Novarossi in terms of build quality and performace.I have been in this hobby 15+years,and when modded, these Picco engines really come alive.I have had all types of engines modded,but out of them all.The Picco's where insane.I have this engine,modded with the full extreme mod,slammed into a revo.At first, I was snapping trans pins and stripping second gear.Through much testing,I have my slipper set,just at the snapping point.My revo is very heavy,(from all aluminum) and this engine screams.I keep the suspension soft,and she gets killer bite and lauches,no more on the lid.So anyone wanting an Italian qualty made,powerhouse of an engine.Picco is where it's at!!!

This thing is a beast! I ran it in my Revo Platinum with the resonator pipe and 20% fuel and it was faster around the track than my other Platinum with the RB 523, or the 3.3. I wanted more power since I race against Truggies so I bought the 053 side pipe from Dynamite and she just explodes around the track now. I'm a good two seconds faster around the track with that pipe. I did have a leaking problem with the carb neck and also my throttle linkage needed to be modified a little bit before it worked well. All in all, how can you beat insane power for 200 bucks? You can't.

Have this in my revo, wrecked drivetrain parts, installed a center diff and all is good. It ran mediocre with the stock rear pipe but now that i installed a 053 side pipe it runs cooler, and is easier to tune. Make sure to seal the carb neck, and backplate with copper rtv before running to avoid airleaks.
