This is the Picco Boost 5TX Team Spec Ceramic .21 Off Road Engine. The 5TX engine was designed to provide the same incredible reliability, fuel mileage and ease of tuning of the popular 5TR but with increased bottom end for drivers who crave that aggressive and punchy bottom end power delivery.

The PICCO Boost 5TX Team Spec has an updated 14mm balanced and silicone filled crankshaft to improve overall performance, a larger more efficient cooling head, updated crankcase design which allows more clearance for different flywheels, super strong “knife edged” aerodynamic connecting rod, lightened piston CNC machined from high percentage silicone alloy billet, and a ceramic “Swiss” made rear bearing to top off the list.

The Boost 5TX Team Spec .21 engine is a top of the line racing engine with a strong and aggressive bottom end powerband and incredible top end performance. Perfect for high grip tracks or tracks with difficult jumps where off the line power is crucial.

I have had this engine for a while and it outperforms most if not all my other engines. It has plenty of torque more than most and doesn't fade during the run. It never flames out it has not had any issues. I run the 2046 pipe for max torque in buggy. It takes a while to learn how to tune but once its right it stays put.)

Run this engine in my LOSI 8T, has plenty of power to clear any jumps, big or small, right out of the corner. Easy to break in and tune and idles smooth as silk. Sounds like a badass with the Picco 2099 Pipe. Actually had a few guys comment on it's performance and sound at the track. Can't beat this engine for the price, buy it, you won't be disappointed after you run this powerhouse.)

Great motor, I had the 5TR which was great as well. This motor has a ton of bottom end. When tuned right you will have no problem competing with a nova or a speed, best part is the price. 500 dollar motor for 300 bucks. Simply amazing.)

This a very good engine, easy to break in, tuning...still learning but I think I got it. Blew one of the guys on the straight away and they were running a .28 engine. Great horsepower and speed. Sounds very mean and aggressive...not in a bad way but in a great way. Picco glow plugs can be difficult to comeby but search around and found a 3 pack for only 19.00 so I got 2, 3 pack of p5th and it comes with a plastic container to hold them. This is worth the money and forget the others, I wanted to buy os, engine 300 and tuned pipe combo 200 that is a lot.)
