There are a lot of racers in my region that have bought the losi pipe to replace there 2050's and swear it is the same or better. I am just not convinced yet. I would have to try it out for myself. I guess I am just kind of hard headed about trying new stuff. I just know that a 2050 and 2060 perform on the vspec or speed motors.

Same pipe as the 2050! Just a much better value!


Have you run the RE-11?

Myself no, It should be at my door in a few days. But buddies of mine have run it with great results. Great pipe! I have also seen it after a solid few months of running, and they seem to be holding up perfectly.

While we are on the subject of pipes, currently have a dynamite 086 on my sirio s21 bk kanai evo3 sti and a ofna jp-2 on my sportwerks .26. The sirio is on my primary buggy I race with so it's my biggest concern. Would the jp-2 be better suited on the sirio then the dynamite 086? I'm still new to all of this so still trying to get the pipe combinations down. What I'm trying to find is good bottom end and good runtime. So, any help would be great.

They are both top end pipes. If you are loking for bottom they aren't the right pipe! I have no experience with sirio engines, so I can't really reccomend a pipe. Maybe try one of the sirio pipes. 2013 might be a good start.
