Default Picco P3 Monster .28 Pullstart OR Axial .32 Pullstart?

As the title suggests I am trying to choose between both of these motors as I can get them for about the same price (£150 GBP). I have been through most of the other posts on engines and these two seem to fit my budget.

Picco P3 Monster .28 OR Axial .32 Spec 1s ??

It is to put in my ST-R.

Thanks for your input.

For 150 you can't go wrong really.

If you're racing, the Picco might be the better bet.

Thanks for that Dnell.

I don't race at the moment.

Apparently a roto start plate can be fitted to the back of the Axial, which is handy as I have the kit. I am not sure about the Picco though.

I am a bit concerned about the fuel consumption of a .32 motor.

Picco seem to be a better brand and I have heard good things about them, but also the Axial!

I will probably go Picco if I can get a roto start back plate to fit it.

Any thoughts?

I would use a starter box. After racing a MGT (can't be started with a starter box) for 2 years I like to avoid roto starts and one-way bearings like the plague.

I'd agree with considering a starter box. It does save a lot of hassle, especially if you're having some tuning issues which require frequent restarts.

One-way bearings can become an issue. Some people have better experiences with them than others. The Axial is compatible with the HPI rotostart that fits the K4.6 engine. I used the K4.6 w/rotostart in my LST over the winter without any problems.

But yeah, starter box, definately.
