Default LRP 28 which pipe?

I will be running the LRP .28 engine in my Truggy. Has anyone run this engine? I would like to hear you comments on it. also what pipe combination should I use for this engine. should I go to a high end pipe like a JP3? any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Wayne

This engine is freaking FAST and has great bottom end.... That said I have sold 10 of them and had issues with the Rear bearing, good thing is they know it and replace it every time. Associated has great customer service

I hear they will be puting in NEW swiss bearing so maybe your will have one in it. If Not its worth the $15 ta have someone, who knows how, drop a NEW rear bearing in it and you should be set

Loved mine after I put a new bearing in it. Made my ST-R on a 200' straight pull away from ANYONE

was cool

Wayne,
I ran two of these a few months ago. I also just put one in a local kids truugy. The motor is very strong on the bottm end but lacks a little on top. As for what pipe to use, not sure, but I used a JP2 it worked great.

My RB928, (the motor which I think is the fastest and most powerful RC thing on the planet!lol) I use a JP2. The JP2 is a two chambered pipe is almost like open headers. All power comes out. That pipe is great for big tracks! For medium to small, I would recomend and use the JP3 or 4. Both are great pipes that provide a little backpressure and make all that power that these 28's very usable.

the JP-3 would be a good pipe for the LRP.28...

My friend had an LRP Z.28 with a JP-1 on it and it ripped.
don't know in comparison to others but I would think a JP-3 would be ok also.

If you want a pipe-set that will make that .28 scream. Get the
TSAIS T-32 pipe-set. I have tried the JP pipes and a few others
and the best pipe for the big blocks was the TSAIS. The .28's
have plenty of low end power and this pipe makes them scream
on the top end.
