Anything you get will have its own little quirks, and you just have to deal with them. I wish there was something that was worry free, but then it wouldn't be nitro.
Yeah thats about what I was thinking.. I know I'll be giving up something to gain something else. I'll give one a shot, and if its horrible.. I'll try something else.

I know the motors certainly arent lacking anything in the power department.

3 gallons? pfffft, maybe if you dont know how to take care of your motors. i have 8 gallons on mine.
always use after run oil
always run clean filters
change your bearings every couple gallons
use good fuel (werks, nitrotane)
keep an eye on your tolerances.
if anyone out there has a 3 gallon vspec they think is dead, hit me with a p/m, i'll give ya some cash for it.

My first V-Spec died on me after 8 gallons (not bad...). Now I own a Speed V-Spec and I couldn't keep the engine tuned and with a straight idle with the speed carb. I put my old stock V-Spec carb on the speed and now its like meeeow ! also, I found the JP-3 was robbing run time and some power on the engine, I put back the JP-2 and it's much better.

If you are getting 8 gallons one a VSpec then you must not be driving fast enough Im rebuilding mine at 3 to be cautious. Better to put some TLC in the motor then a rod out the side of the block. Just so you know, I know how to take care of my stuff.

Whatever I have 3 gallons on one I bought used the compression is still great. Most guys I know are getting 6-12 gallons through them. 2-3 is rediculous.

I have way more than 3 gal on my ebmods vspecs and they are still rippin fast.
good pinch good bearings no problems
I have had 1 stock vspec
I now have 2 ebmods and 1 speed vspec
My stocker went about 8 gallons
1 of my embods has more than 10 gallons on it. It's not any slower but you can tell it is wearing out buy the temps vs the smoke. still the same smoke trail still really fast but the head temps are coming up. use to be about 210-230 now i have seen 250 or even 260 once.

My speed motor runs on the hot side on my truggy about 240-250 but good smoke But it is unrealistically fast tons of power no matter what rpm.

I have the jp1 jp2 jp3 2050 2060 I like the 2060 in a truggy and a 2050 or jp3 in a buggy the jp1 or 2 I don't see the gains people talk about on the bottom or top of the rpm with these pipes.

I have about a gallon in my V-spec. Now I notice the carb slide is sticking alittle , think its from the idle screw. Anyone polish or sand scratches on their slide?

Shizzila just chuck the slide in a drill with a little bit of bearing oil or after run oil and work it back and forth in the carb body. I had the same problem on one of my VSpecs and Ryan showed me this trick. It comes out perfectly smooth afterwards.

I was running a JP3 on my Vspec. I finally found an OS 2050...man what a difference. The car was faster everywhere on the track and got about another 2 minutes of runtime! Well worth the effort to find one!

As stated above and also a few other places in this thread.
I have the 053 086 jp1 jp2 jp3 os2050 and os2060 I like the 2060 in a truggy and a 2050 or jp3 in a buggy the jp1 or 2 I don't see the gains people talk about on the bottom or top of the rpm with these pipes.

the jp3 is close in power just seams a bit off when compared to the os2050.
anyway you have an os motor you should get the pipe that was designed for it. the os2050 or os2060. both awsome pipes. the bonus with the os pipes that I think everyone seams to agree with is extra run time. some say +0:30 some say +2:30 I see on average about a min more run time in both my buggy and truggy with the os pipes vs others

yea the 2060 is the best pipe for them. at least in a buggy they lack a bit of bottom from the 2050.

i replace rods at 4 gallons in my vspecs. 30.00 you can't go wrong.
