T-maxx engine

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys....
I need your help. I would like to up grade my t-maxx engine, I have few choices, I was thinking ofna/picco .21 pull start....
But someone told me picco's are very hard to tune, and I don't too much about nitro engines.....
Also I was thinking about o.s .18tm .... but I thought can't really replace the size...

My t-maxx is a pig, it's very heavy

Hey Joon,

Picco engines have always been known as hard to tune engines... untill you get more familiar with tuning I would stay away from it personally.

You simply cannot go wrong with an OS engine, they have great power and tunes easily and keep the tune very good! You won't really have to change it much once you have it dialed in unless there is a big change in the weather.

OS has a new engine out, .18 TZ or something like that? the power is INSANE on it... I was reading a review on it and the numbers that came out of the dyno were very close to the Rex .28!! Like with in 15% of the REX engine I belive! I know that's the engine I am going to get is I ever replace the one in my T-Maxx...

I use the .18CV-R and it's a great engine, tons of power. Tower was selling them for like $89 to clear them out cause the new OS-TZ was coming out to replace it
