Default You and my first Vspec Impression

Well after Running nothing but RB WS7s, I went out and gambled on a used EB mods V-spec, my first issues was getting is started, seem to be dumping to much fuel in the motor so I lean it out some, and about 20min later it fired up, so i ran it rich for a well then started to lean on it and to my surprise that dang motor has a Ton of power well maintaining about 230 degree(i had no temp gun just used the spit test,smoke and engine sound) and the funny thing is its has a very very smooth powerband the top end is just sick(maybe because its moded my EB Mods)..I was just Running it with an ofna 086 pipe but when i get more funds ill go out an get a jp3 or OS2060 IF I can Afford it.Im very Impress so far with my first OS Vspec what a great powerband and so so smooth..

don't go with the JP3, if your on a budget try a dynamite 053 you can get them for like $50 and that would be my second choice to a 2060. As far as the EB Mods, the mods give more power across the whole power-band.
Check it out!

They are awesome, but the better bang for the bux is defiantly the ninja JX. The JX is smoother, more reliable,(no cracking cases), Nicer Carb (Idle screw up top), better rod, and will be good for a rebuild (DLC coating), oh yeah and it's faster..
All for about an extra $50! This is a no brainier if you ask me....

Awesome engine. One of the best .21 racing engines ever. I have yet to find an engine that will match the performance and runtime of the OS engines. I have also not found any longevety issues. 8 gallons on my v-spec and running stronger than ever.

As for pipes, go with the losi RE11. It's an os 2050 copy for $65. JP-3 is also a great pipe for it IMO. Awesome power and excellent runtime, but I would still go with the losi pipe.
