Tuned Pipe

I am planning to get a new engine next week for my Losi 8ight Buggy, right now I am leaning towards the Novarossi http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/2939 .

Can I get some reccommendations for tuned pipes that will go well with this engine based on its abilities.

I plan to use this engine on bigger tracks and keep using my OS RG on the smaller track that we frequent the most.

I am currently running a JP-3 on my RG.

Thanks in advance.

Run a version of the 086 for max power. Keep a short and long header for tuning.
The JP-3 will run well with this engine. It will give you better run times than the 086 and will be a little smoother.
Pipes depend a lot on your track and surface conditions. Indoor small clay tracks have different requirements than a large outdoor loamy track.

We can help more with a little more info.

Thanks for the replies so far.

Tex1, I run at Indy in Garland and Jake's in Euless. This engine/pipe would be more for Jake's and tracks that size and larger; but I wouldn't rule out running it at both . Right now I am doing fine with the RG at Indy.

The pipes I am considering...

JP-2
JP-3
Novarossi 9886
Bullit MSR-1005 *Currently Out of Stock on A Main*

I am looking for smooth power more so than fuel efficiency. But dont want to run 5 min tanks either.

go with the Novarossi 9886 that pipe will get good run time very good you could go 8-10 mins a tank not as much power as the jp-2 would do but you mostlikey will not need all the power.

tkemory -
I run at those tracks as well. Instead of buying a pipe how about walking into my pit room (at Indy) and trying ones out of the selection I have on my bench. Then you will know for sure.
I have about 8 different pipe and header combinations you could try that will greatly help your purchase.
That is why I have them there.
I'll be there tonight with my orange RC Pro shirt on.
Let me know.

Tex,

Thanks for the offer. I will be ordering my engine this weekend, I will take you up on that once it comes in and I get it broken in.

Not to hijack a thread but I'm running a S7 with a JP1 pipe and looking at the RB 2045 and 2020 pipes. Will I see a big difference in these pipes over the JP1?

The 2020 pipe is the one that is recommended for the engine. It does run very well with the RB sport motors.
This pipe is a smooth torque pipe with an RPM front on it. The rear is more long and tapered so you will like it on the slick stuff or the short tracks. When you can really put the power down and have tons of traction the JP-1 will be the way to go.
Have you tried the JP-2. They love the RB sport motors!
Like peas and carrots!

I missed you tonight. We do carry those engines and the full RB and Sportworks line as well.
Break in is $20 with an engine purchase and $35 without. Everyone comes back again after they have had it done once because it is just too easy.
I have over 20 years in RC and Joe has more than I do by a mile.
He has raced at the Worlds level in 1/8th onroad and knows what it takes to get the job done and get it done right.
We can do full mod work (moJoe) for efficiency, low or top end power.
Prices vary.
Best bang for the buck.
Look us up if you need more info.
