Default Picco 26 Max....the DARK SIDE....

How many of y'all have gone over to the "Dark Side, " with that Black and Blue, Ofna Picco 26 Max ????????????????????????????????????????????
I'll start.....I'm there, and I'm already saving for another.....

Tricks I've found that work great, and keep the grin factor at Max level in a REVO....

16/38 gearing
M/S filter on OEM REVO snorkle
Shorten theexhaust header5'16", or the length of the "bell"
Open the muffler outlet to 7/32"
Seal the carb to the crankase with "copper" RTV

HEAT CYCLE your first fuel tank....shut off every time the engine reaches 240-250F, Do NOT idle the 1st tank, run at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle, watch temps, and heat cycle! Do the second tank the same way.....then 3rd-5th normal break-in. These engines are tight and will generate heat, even rich....watch those temps on the first 2 tanks.

During heat cycle, rotate the piston to bdc during cool down, do not restart until temp is beow 110F.


This is what I've found works good....it is NOT gospel, and as another bit of info, I'm at about 250' asl. If you've got a different combo, other observations or ideas on break-in, POST em! But let's keep this thread about the Dark Side, let's complile some working data on the Picco 26 Max HERE.

Are you happy with this engine?
I know it's got a lot of power but how's the life of the engine?
Is it quality?
I've heard the stock Revo pipe seems to work great in the Picco 26. True?
Is it a gas hog?
How does its performance compare to other engines similar in size?

It's gonna be a week before I can run it, and it's drivin me nuts! I can't wait to see what it'll do. Where did you find that break-in procedure? Did you follow it too? Great results? If so I'll follow it to a TEE. Next week will be too much fun. I get my LST2 back from Losi (transmision problems right outta the box) and I pick up my Picco 26. Hey how would the Picco 26 do in a LST2? LOL :-)

i have and all i can say is loving it.

used traxxas break-in as find this is best
15/36 gearing
M/S filter on OEM REVO snorkle with epoxy round base
qoncepts header but going bk to stock cant find a coupler that wont stop burning up
bored out muffler to a 1mm wall thickness
sealed whole engine with loctite engine sealant "carb,backplate and even a little on the copper shims on the head" sealed up great

break in was a doddle only had one major temp at start but noticed my fuel tank o-ring went so changed it over and was great

only problem i am having is im burning up exhaust couplers with the qoncepts flex header and so im going bk to stock

old pictures i now have the carbon battery holder and all my electrics are now ballooned up

an owb, is a "one way bearing."
OEM is "original equipment manufacture(r)" or "stock part."

So what it said/meant was....the stock REVO one way bearing will work with a Picco 26 Max.

If you use the easy start on it the stock OWB works. If you buy the pullstart version it comes with a flanged OWB.

Okay,
Do you think I should Buy a Revo And Get a Picco .26 for it or get a Nemesis and leave it stock? My Main goal is to Smoke my freind who is getting a stock Savage Le.So here is the Question, can a stock Revo Beat a Stock Savage Le? I'll Upgrade it to a Picco .26 as soon as I have to $$$ To.

Thanks

I have a stock Savage LE and a stock Revo 2.5R. Well, both are mostly stock and I have new motors waiting for warmer weather to go in. And I should add that I love both of these trucks, yes even the Savage. In stock form, the Revo will woop up on the LE so bad it is not even funny. The LE will leap ahead of the Revo on takeoff, but that's OK. Because when it hit's 3rd, it's done. The stock .25 Savage motor has a lousy RPM range and tops out pretty early. I give it no more than 10 yards, if that, before the Revo passes the LE.

You might ask how I know. Well, when my son and I go bashing I drive a Savage and he drives our Revo. The only way I can outrun him is to put a jump in the middle of our race and hope that he gets over anxious and flips it on the jump. Or, I guess I could make it a 10 foot dragrace, I think I could take him then. And I will tell you that it's not easy having a 7 year old kid outrun you with a truck you bought and paid for. But I love him anyway.

Trust me. The Savage does not have a chance against it in stock form. The 4.6 may be a little closer, but I might still put my money on the Revo.

we are keeping them almost totaly stock.My buddy is going to get a surefire .32 for his savage Le and when he gets that I'm getting Picco .26 Then I should still beat him.Right??

Thanks

Ps as soon as I get my Revo I'll post some pics for you all.

Thanks Again!!!

ZoomZoom1. At that point, if he does win a drag race, tell him you have to go to the end then turn around and come back to finish the race. Savages just love high speed corners Now I am just being mean. I personally think you will still win. And on a race track, the Savage would not stand a chance if you can keep the Revo from pulling wheelies.
