The stinger on the JP-4 is definitely a lot stronger and I don't think the pipe is the same either. Not sure about the specs on the Ninja pipe and I have not used the JP-4 myself (I got the JP-1, JP-2 and JP-3 and like them all and mix them up, depending on the track layout), but I race with some guys that love the JP-4!

The ninja pipe is the exact same pipe as the Ofna 053 pipe. The JP4 is nothing at all like either the ninja or ofna pipes. The 053 pipes have a lot more grunt then the JP4.

Hope this helps....

This is a great pipe..works pretty much the same as the JP3 but with better mids...it's exactly the same pipe as the Hong Nor EFRA-2062 pipe that has been out for awhile. Guess it's repackaged as a Jammin product which happens to be the label for Hong Nor products sold in the usa..whatever it is guys, it's one great pipe...
And after some tests....

The JP4/EFRA 2062 works very well with most .21 engines especially with RB, OS and STS. It's got the same bottom end as the JP3 but the mids and top end are better. The power curve and mids are really smooth. The pipe's sound level is pretty similar to the JP3

I myself have the jp4 on both my truggy and buggy both sporting vspecs. I have yet to run them, damn Canadian wheather

the ninja 2053 is not the same as the 053. totally different shape.
the only reason i was wondering about the jp4/2053 is because they looked kind of similar
