Not looking forward to the break in. JP3 pipe good enough for a tight track with short approaches to big jumps?

I was at the local track this weekend with a friend of mine and we installed the grp non tuned motor out of his truck into his buggy. I talked him into trying my dynamite 053 after reading good results online and so he did. This combo in a hyper 9 buggy was very impressive. Good power from bottom to top with an odo99 plug. Going to get one for myself after this experience.

Thumbs up

i have four gallons on mine and it is still hard to turn over with your hand i love this thing . i get 8 1/2 minutes of run time in a d8 . to me for a now sub 200 dollar motor that is awesome. and you dont have to spend 15 dollars on a turbo plug another plus if you ask me.

for a plug i run rb6

for a pipe i run the associated 2035 and it works really good.

i am glad this thread got started for the longest time i thought i was the only one that was running the non tuned.
