Yea engine was fine, let me tell you that engine has the tightest pinch I've ever encountered. If you are breaking this in and aren't very strong get bump box haha. I work out daily and this **** was makin me turn red trying to turn it over after I had just ran and put it at bottom lowest point. I have 9 tanks through the engine so far and it screams, I haven't even really leaned it out more than 2 degrees out of 360. I will be making a video this weekend most likely and show you guys, hopefully my tune will be close to perfect. I'd do it this week but don't get home from work til 9pm :-(.

picco based engines are tight as anything when new. i have a picco based engine, a Jammin JPX 21, and i had to use a screw driver to break it loose all of the time for over 2 gallons. it now has 4+ gallons on it and it still has more pinch than my new Nova. its crazy. its just now getting some power, and it already had to much from the start. also the engine has had 2 run aways, and 2 air filters come off and ran it a few laps without one. the engine is amazing.

no wonder it was hard to start, being that it was wanting to run full throttle up the wall

not as scary as a FM crystal falling out at WOT.[X(]

Servos are 55$ at tower. After my discounts etc they were like 35$ each. Hitec 645's. Pull start works fine I don't know why everyone complains man up and go at it! My buggy starts first pull every time. During break in it's kind of rough cause pinch is ridiculously tight. Yesterday temps for up to 240 at one point but in that run they only hit 210. Video would be better if I had someone to help me video tape lol. But anyway, I'd say out of all the videos on you tube etc that I've found with the picco buggy. Mine runs the best, tuned the best and rips.

It is true about the kit building, HOWEVER if you want a good quality buggy get the picco because you get a good qaulity engine and car(check the reviews and see for yourself)I run nothing but high end  ofna's and losi buggies and truggies and if your bashing you don,t need to spend 1000$ plus to get a good buggy. my losi 8ight-t 2.0 cost over 1800$ with all the best products but that would be ridiculous for you spending that much money for just getting into 8th scale.your pricing is a reasonable price for a 8th scale buggy.GO WITH THE PICCO BUGGY???P.S THAT ENGINE SCREAMS WITH A JAMMIN JP-3.
