OS 2060 or 2050, if you don't want to spend that much the losi re11 is a direct copy of the OS 2050.

I run a JP-3 or an EB-mods 2041 on my v-spec. As far as the BEST pipe the 2060 or 2050 are probably some of the best. But in a truggy I am loving the powerband of the JP-3 and getting 10+ minutes of runtime on a 200 on a large track.

how would you compare JP-3 to 2041. I got both but had chance to run only JP-3 so I cant compare yet

I use the short header from Novarossi, with the O.S. 2060 pipe, the Vspec seems to work well on the short pipes.

Are they still making the 2050? I was told they are not.

They are going to release in again.

JP-3 has slightly more bottom end, 2041 is smoother and gets slightly better runtime. Both good pipes for the v-spec based engines.

As for the 2050 If I were to buy one now I would get the losi version (RE 11) just because of price and durability of the pipe.

all of us that have v-specs rub the RE11 pipe here, because we run 10 min heats and if you pit, you run the chance of not having a good qual spot.

I can get almost 11 min w/8mm restrictor on mine.

Noone was denying that. Infact thats basically what I said already and the reason it runs so well on OS engines.
