Picco R2-3518 Team DLC Ceramic on-road engine

In addition to their new .21 off-road and .12 nitro touring engines, Italian company Picco also have a new 3.5cc nitro on-road engine available. The R2-3518 Team DLC Ceramic is based off of the popular R1 platform and thanks to numerous improvements the power band and stability could be further improved. A new cylinder port shape and crankshaft design optimise the internal mixture flow and also the bore/stroke ratio has been updated slightly compared to the R1. The new engine still features the DLC coated crankshaft for great durability of all parts involved while the latest crankcase design provides improved overall stiffness and therefore a more stable performance at every temperature. The engine is rounded out by a rear Swiss-made ceramic bearing and a carburettor with double bottom-end adjustment.
