that might depend on what type of track your running on.

Yup, depends on what track you're running on (long straights, short straights, big jumps, etc.) , number of teeth on your CB, clutch shoe type, clutch springs...

Get the JP-3. That pipe works well with just about every engine out there. At least one of those 4 will work poorly on the engine. I don't agree with the idea that it depends what type of track you run on. Nitro engines usually have an optimum pipe for them, regardless of the track. It's best (in my opinion) to find out what pipe works best for the engine and stick with it. You will know your engine's tuning characteristics better and be able to spend more time dialing in the chassis, less time finding the best engine settings for the day. You can tune your engine's power/traction management more predictably with clutch and gearing.

JP-3 any day is a good all round pipe and works with most engines.

I like JP-3 on buggies and JP-1 on a truggy, the smooth band of the JP-3, and the grunt of the JP-1

Jp-3 is an awesome pipe for just about every motor out there. Only complaint I have about it is that it is kinda a fuel pig.

I've always been a believer in going with what supports your engine's best quality. I don't run different pipes for certain tracks. That's what clutches and clutch bells are for!

Engines that are good at the low rpm's you want a pipe made for the bottom end.

Same with the top. Good at top end go for a top end pipe.

Sorry im not familiar with which jammin pipe is best for what.

if your choice is limited to the jp pipes (and noise aint an issue!) then i'd recommend the JP-3... personally i run a ninja 2053 FLS or OS 2060 pipe on my modded ninja 21.

Dude!! You totally asked my question for me! I also run the JP-3 pipe, on my V-spec, and I want the new Ninja for my 808, and wanted to know what people thought. I have been told mostly to go with the ninja pipe,(053), or 2060 by most people, so TRArena nailed it, at least from what I've been hearing.
