Picco V1 Race & V1 Star nitro off-road engines

Coming from Picco are the new V1 Race and V1 Star intro off-road engines. Starting with the Race engine, the power plant shares many design features with the higher-ranked Team engine such as a 5-port cylinder and long stroke design in combination with a new, stiffer crankcase but the Race edition sports a slightly different exhaust port that leads to a different power response. With the only other differences from the higher end version being a steel rear bearing instead of the ceramic one and a non DLC-coated crankshaft, the V1 Race addresses all levels of racing. The engine also features the new double bottom-end adjustment carburettor that allows for a finer tuning.

Featuring a 3-port design instead of the 5-port setup seen on the Team and Race versions, the Picco V1 Star offers a smoother power band. This version shares the same built quality as the Team version, and sports a balanced, silicone-filled crankshaft to optimise the mixture flow. The unit is completed with the new carburettor with double bottom-end adjustment and lightened and laser engraved cooling head.
