I love the JP-3 on mine. I got 11+ min runtime on the monster motorama track, and around 13 on my local track. That was in a truggy though. I have heard that the JP-4 gets better milage than the 3 anyway. If you are looking for the absolute best pipe, it would have to be the OS 2060 or the OS 2050/losi RE11. For the price of the RE11 that might be your best bet. The losi pipe is a 2050 copy, and the 2050 is the best v-spec pipe.

I run a JP-4 on mine.. get reasonable runtime.. but is a little bit of a fuel hog.. Not sure 100% runtime.. as its still only had just under a gallon through.. think it was round the 8 mark.. but dont count me on that..

Actually if you will search there was another thread about pipes for the V-SPEC... it has a link to some dyno testing. The best pipe isn't anything mentioned there... nor is the second best, which is the 053 pipes (what I run.)

The 2060, 2050 or 2041 works very well on a VSpec. AE 2035 works well also, but not as good as the other three IMO.

+1 I really like the 2041 on mine. Haven't tried any of the others. The OS pipes are so damn expensive.

Yes they are, but they are one of the toughest pipes around. The Ninja 2042 (O.S. 2060) pipe only can be found priced fairly good online if you search.

Yeah I know. There are a couple of ebay shops that sell the 2060 for $130. I will get one some time. I know the 2060 is supposed to be the best. I want to try the losi re11 too.
