Default JP-6 JP-1 QUESTION

Does anyone know if the JP-6 is longer/shorter than the JP-1?
Is the new JP-6 a top end or bottom end pipe?
JP-6 have chambers?

I asked Rob at NitroHouse about the pipe a couple
weeks ago and he said that they haven't had a
chance to run the pipe yet. So he couldn't tell me
what r.p.m. range it was good for. Funny how it just
popped up for sale without any info about it anywhere.

Wait....when did they get to JP-6? I totally missed JP-5, I mean I know about the JP-.5(1/2) for the 1/12 scale truggies, but is the .5 considered to fill the 5 spot? LOL.

the jp-6 is an "all around" pipe, just like the jp-3 n jp-4. don't know why they have another all around pipe but they do. a local sponsor racer has one n he noticed more bottom end then the jp-4 n little better run time.

My guess is that their R7D department finds minute tweeks that they can make and instead of back porting they just create a new version. If this in indeed there style, I think we'll see the phasing out of their older models.

The new JP6 just might meet the new Efra rules. The JP4 doesn't from what I am told, since they changed the rules on the pipes again.

Not fact, just rumblings that I am hearing.

isn't the JP-4 is already EFRA compliant to the new rules it has EFRA #3064 on the pipe and I thought any pipe starting with a 3 eg 3064 etc was compliant

I can't keep up with all the JP #'s vs EFRA #'s BS but if a pipe has an EFRA # on it that starts 3xxx then it should be legal for EFRA and IFMAR. Also, I would NOT bother buying one unless you are running in an EFRA or IFMAR race since ROAR is not requiring them yet and they are all SLOW compared to 2xxx pipes.

I'm with you on the NOT understanding point. Why change the rules? Why make previous approved pipes become non-approved? Seems like a waste of time. Or maybe people creating job security. LOL. I shouldn't say that. Anyways, I won't have to worry about the EFRAIFMARROAR deal for many years, cause I'm not that good.

OK!! Here's the scoop:

First, Jammin came out with the JP4 (EFRA 2062), because JP3 didn't comply with European noise regulations (yes, this is an issue as some track are near towns).

Then EFRA goes and changes the regulations again, and Jammin has to come out with JP6 (EFRA 3016).

Now it seems that for a small noise dimminishement, these pipes reduce the motor's power output noticeably. So in site of the uproar, EFRA might changes the rules again next year.

In Spain, after making 30xx pipes mandatory for official racing, thay allowed the drivers to drill out a bit of the inside of the curved connecting pipe, to improve the motor's performance.

TO SUM IT UP: if you bash or race at a club level, don't even bother with all this bull. Just get a JP4 (EFRA 2062), that gives the best all-arround performance.
