While I don't have the LG2 WS7, I've got the previous years version along with a GRP. 21, RB C6BBT, MR Ninja .21, and an OS V-spec.

With the exception of the OS the others are all pretty much the same. A nice smooth linear powerband, a bit softer on the bottom.

The V-Spec has tons of power everywhere. This can be good and bad. It takes a bit more throttle control on the bottom so that you aren't either spinning tires or spinning the buggy around in a circle.

IMO, the V-spec is my favorite for my driving style...

Get the Associated black pipe(ASC89175) I'm pretty that the correct number and header(ASC89176).

I've got a huge collection of exhaust pipes; I've found for a stock V-Spec, the 2060 works best. I've tried the JP-3 on it, and while it works well, it tends to run a little hotter than the 2060 and lacks a bit on the bottom when compared to the 2060.

The other JPs aren't suited well for the engine. They work, but not well. Also the OS 2050 is too restrictive. Lacks too much bottom end.

I have a S7 in mine. I am very happy with it. A WS7 would be a great choice.
