Os 2050 or 2060...60 is a little smoother on the bottom.
053 takes away a little bottom. TTR 2035 smoother on the bottom also and good mid and top. I like the 2050.

The 2050 is the way to go. I have used a JP3 and JP2 with success but they just dont get as much run time as the 2050. The JP3 creates killer bottom but lacked a little on top, to where the JP2 still has excellent bottom with more top. I could get right at 9 minutes with either JP pipe and around 10 minutes or better with the 2050. The os pipe makes great power pretty much everywhere.

Very well said. I may try that pipe in the future. Thanks.

Thank you guys but let me rephrase my question a bit.I have a CRT with a V-Spec and I am running it currently with a 2060 OS package with Silver shoes and 1.0 springs.The problem is mostly that I don't have the bottom end and I also don't have the top end that I need.Now I know that I should probably have a .28 in my tank but I don't currently have the cash for it.I have three pipes that I can use that I already currently own #1 2060 #2 086 OFNA #3 Hyper 2059 what do you all think ?

motomanpat:

I run a Vspec in my CRT as well. I have found that a JP-1 with the OS 2050 header (not the long round JP header) is great. The complete OS 2050 setup is great too with a touch better milage. Also I used the gold springs with the silver shoes on both setups, as I found the 1.0 black springs are a little soft for the truggy but great for a FTE buggy application.

This has worked excellent on either tighter or medium large tracks for me!

dont waste your time fooling around with other pipes. the 2050 was developed just for the vspec.

Currently I can't buy a pipe,header or a new engine so I am kind of stuck with what I have.

On the Vspec, the 2060 beats the 2050 throughout the whole power curve. I don't know why people are still using the 2050's.

I use the 2060 and love it. I actually prefer to gear up to control the bottom end. I can't imagine needing more power down low.
