Jay.. You can get the OS pipes from Tony's screws for $130 W/ header of your choice.. check it out http://www.tonysscrews.com/category.sc?categoryId=74
cool. thanks. I have also seen 2060's on ebay for $130. But with the ninja you get to pick the header which is nice. I am probably gonna order an EB head button from tony anyway so i might grab the pipe then too.

i think the p3 i have in it now plug wise....... as far as carb , my speed came with a bad carb< os basicly told me to f***off..we wont warranty anything!> so im actually using a grp carb on it. and it works very well.
let me say I WILL NEVER BUY AN OS PRODUCT AGAIN cause of that

miller ive met you before and seen you at the YARD! im one of trey's buddies, i got the pipe from trey....... my next mill will be a jx

The JX is an OS product..lol
Anyway try a P4. You'll make more power, and get better run times. You will need to lean it to compensate for the colder plug.. YGPM

I just can't justify spending $170 for the 2060.

Here is the ebay link. this is the guy I got mine from. he had like 60 when I got mine a few months ago.

You'll give up a little bit of power with the Losi pipe, but great runtimes.

Interestingly enough, I'm running a Dynamite .053 on my V-Spec... makes plenty of power, and I'm getting about 12, maybe 13 minute runtimes in my truggy. I haven't timed it to runout, but I can run a 10 minute heat race and have 1/4" of fuel left... and I'm running a hair fat, barely temping 200-210.

And just so you know, I am NOT "Mr. Throttle Control." I'm WAY too choppy on throttle, it isn't my finger getting those runtimes.

Not bad for a $50 pipe.

And I have a friend running that Losi pipe on a V-SPEC, he's getting 10 minutes. His dad tried it on the Speed, it was down on power AND wasn't getting near the runtime. It isn't a good match for the speed.
