Default Pipe for V-Spec

What is a good pipe for the V-spec? I know they recommend the OS pipe but at $130 bucks I don't think I want to go that route. Was thinking of the JP4 or JP2. What are your thoughts?

TTR/AE 2035s and JP3s are also good pipes on the V-Specs. O.S. 2050 really is the best choice though.

EB Mods 1/8th Dyno Tuned Exhaust System (for EB Modified O.S. V-Spec and Stock V-Spec)

this one is around the same price as the OS pipe though.

I have the JP2 on a stock V-Spec and I'm not impressed with how it runs. I bought a JP3 and OS pipe to try and will know if it's any better after next weekend. The V-Spec with the JP2 is not near as fast as the B7 Collari motor I have with a JP1 on it. It feels really soft off the bottom and doesn't seem to have much top end either. I'm new at this game, but I have plenty of experience with 2-stroke snowmobile engines and pipes.

looney, the JP2 is known as a top end pipe, so what you're experiencing with it makes sense. You'll like the JP3 and OS pipes a lot better.

When I've run the JP-2 on my v-spec I've found that the power is good, but mileage is not the best. If you're buying a new pipe I second the TTR 2035 recomendation.

I'm going to try the Dynamite 053 and 086 on it this weekend. If you haven't made a decision by then I'll let you know how each of those work out.

I hope so. I was told the JP2 was a top end pipe, it just doesn't seem to have much of it. The JP1 is a bottom end pipe, but it was faster everywhere with the Collari motor. Now I did have them in 2 different truggies, so I'm going to change the gearing on the Losi 8T with the V-Spec and one of my new pipes better work. If they don't, it has to be me.

JP-3 or OS 2050

I get over 10 minutes of run time with the JP-3 with great power. But I get even better & smoother power with the 2050, with a little less run time. 9 minutes I usually run the JP-3, I like the longer run time, and it power is plenty for the track I mostly run..

Thanks for all the input. I might do the JP4 pipe. I've seen Chad Bradley run the JP4 on his OS Speed and that thing hauls.
