Default OS .21 vz-b v-spec, what pipe?

Hey guy's, I've been looking all over the net for pipe recommendations for this engine. I have found a few varying opinions. I was set on the sirio cl3b but i thought I'd stretch and buy the os!
Initially i was set on an os 2060 pipe but this seems very expensive and possibly not worth the extra cash. I have seen many recommend the jammin pipes, the jp-1 doesn't sound like a good choice as it's mainly for tight tracks but it seems like the jp-2 and jp-3 might be what i'm after.
The track i race at has about 3 decent length straights that you can really open up on. Lap times are about 38-39's for the quick guy's.
Any advice appreciated.

-Hugh

I personally really like the AE/TT 2035 pipe and run it on my OS Speed as well as on my V-Spec. JP3 ain't too bad either and people say that it gives a little better fuel mileage.

Default jammin

The Jammin pipes are what most of us run at my track on the V-Spec. It's easy, you want bottom you run the jp 1 you want mid ant top you run the jp 3. I run the jp 3 with my V-Spec with great results. This is a video of CW at the nitroX at the Nitro Pit with the jp 3 V-spec.

Thanks guy's, sounds like the jp3 is the pipe to go for then!

My VZB loved the Dynamite Platinum pipe...053MR...Also the OS 2060 is great but pricey.

os 2050 is the only way to go. OS pipes last 10 times as long as a JP-3.

2050 is a brute on the v spec. 2060 pretty sweet too on big tracks or tracks that lack grip.

what do you mean by that? i personally find it easier to clean and maintain a hardcoated pipe than a polished one. only recently did os fix the problem with the pressure nipple coming off. my jp3 is over 2 yrs old and works perfectly. curious as to what you meant?? thanks

The original 2050 was clear coated and was very easy to clean. In 2006, OS re-released the Mark Pavidis 2050 and it was not clear coated, but if you use an SOS pad, you could clean it right up. What I meant about lasting longer than the JP pipes it that the wall thickness of the 2050 is double that of the JP-3. The JP pipes smack down on the mud guard and the belly of the pipe flattens out. You really have to try to dent a 2050. I have some 2050s that are 4 yrs. old!
