What pipe do you recommend? I have a dyn 053, JP2, dyn 086, GRP 2053 and a trinity bad boy pipe. Also what header for a truggy long or short. I usually run a long header for increased torque is that necessary with this engine?

I have run a 053 and the JP2 on a speed and I felt they both worked great. But ultimately I ended up buying a 2050 for it.

Out of those the 053 is gonna be the best. IMO the best pipes for it are the os 2060, losi re11/os 2050, EB 2041, JP-3, or 053. The 2060 will give a smooth powerband with the best runtime. Re11 or 2050 will be punchier with good runtime too. EB 2041 is about the same, maybe a tad less runtime. JP-3 very punchy, but kinda flat in the midrange, good runtime, but less than the others. 053 very smooth, with good runtime.

No way does the 2050 work well on the speed motor. Do yourself a favor and buy the 2060. 2050 does real well on regular v spec but kills the speed motor. Been there done that. 2050 kills that sweet top end the speed has.

What about the 053?

If you are going to spend the money on a 2050, best bet is the 2060. That is really the best pipe for the speed.

Agreed I just put my OS SPEED in to my 2.0T What a difference I think it ran better in my 2.0B Fast as hell in the buggy not enough power for the Truggy....changed the 4 shoe aluminum stock 2.0 setup to 2 steel and 2 carbon setup has a little more low end grunt IMO in that configuration....As always with the speed great run time though

Thanks Cary. I might have to try it out. I have 5 pipes to try but I don't have a 2035 sounds like a higher torque pipe - lower number (last 2 digits) usually means more torque and less top end, but worth a try.

I run the Speed in both Truggy and Buggy. I never had a problem with lack of power in my truggy, I put a 6mm carb. restrictor in it to tone it down a notch. I also run a 5mm restrictor in my buggy engine. My race partner runs a 5 port Novarossi in his Truggy and that thing is a screamer. He runs 2 carbon/2 aluminum shoes in his Losi 8T.

Anyone know if I need to add the extra shim that the speed comes with to run 30%?

I believe that shim is just intended for break-in. I myslef run 20% so not completely sure. I don't think it's needed though. I didn't even use it for break-in.
