Picco R1 Team WC2017 3.5cc nitro on-road engine

Picco Micromotori have introduced the latest addition to their on-road engine range, the R1 Team DLC WC2017. The power plant is a limited edition run, tested on the 2017 Worlds track and featuring a different cylinder with updated timing that increases the bottom power to better suit the challenging French circuit. The engine is easily recognised by a new engraved cooling head, specially designed and dedicated to the event and maintaining the size of the standard version to obtain a low centre of gravity. As with the standard R1 Team version, the crankcase sports a designing concept that ensures more stable performance throughout a wider temperature range and thanks to its improved stiffness it is immune to any RPM loss caused by unwanted torsion. The WC2017 also shares the same double bottom-end adjustment carburettor for finer tuning and a better mixture flow. The crankshaft features DLC coating that prevents any oxidation and wear of the crankpin and the engine comes fitted with a ceramic ball bearing and a 7-port sleeve paired with a piston machined from high silicon material.
