Default Which Pipe for Novarossi Plus 21-5K?

As the title suggests, which pipe do you recommend to use with the Novarossi Plus 21-5K motor? Which pipe set, which brand, etc? If it helps at all the motor will be going into a truggy. As always your help and advice is much appreciated.

I have used a jp-3 and a jp-1 on mine. Neither of those are probably the "best" pipe for the motor but it ran great with them. The jp-1 gives it awesome bottom however I liked the jp-3 the best on it for overall performance and fuel economy.

What kind of run time were you getting with the jp-3 and which car was it it? Thanks

Well I havent run it with the jp-3 for awhile so i'm not sure, plus when I was running it with the 3 it was still finishing breakin. But I ran it last weekend in my losi buggy with the JP-1(running on a small tight indoor track so i wanted the extra bottom and didn't need the top) and I was getting 8-9 min. With the JP-3 it should be close to 10 min.

novarossi 9853 works really well, also the associated/thunder tiger 2035 works good also with this engine, you can also use a 9886 or msr1005

nova 9853 with short round novarossi header, 6 or 6.5 mm insert, great power, and you can flirt with 10 min runtimes, but it depends on your track.

Best pipe/header for the 21-5 imho

You can try the 9901 pipe as well. It is extremely smooth with a controllable power band. I get about 9 min a tank in a Losi 2.0. It is a lot easier to drive with a lot of the newer gearing in 1/8 scale.

truggy = dynamite 053mr with short square ofna header
buggy = dynamite086hs with stock header

lots of testing and these two pipes provide the best in durability , performance and lifespan of the pipeset , plus you can buy each piece seperate or together . novarossi pipes provide better power but lack in durability , the 9901 is very fragile .

use mccoy mc8 for standard odonnell 97t for turbo

I think the consensus is a 053 or 9853 pipe... Are they the same?

CJM - which header do you like with the 9853?

Don't overlook the 9901. I have the same combo in my buggy and it flat out hauls ass! No dents or dings after two races.
