The best pipe for a vspec is the os 2060 or I use the mugen 2042 (os 2060 copy). This pipe works very well. I have also seen great results with the jp3 pipes. I haven't seen too many jp4 pipes on vspecs so I dunno about that one. Os 2060 is the best and you will pay a high price for the best, but you did ask.

The TTR 2035 is probably the best pipe for the value and it makes the engine very crisp and runs like a machine, and they are only $47.00 US from amains

For a racer with deep pockets, the OS 2060 is also a very good pipe

They are the two best bets for a great combination

The 2035 is a very good pipe, but if your running it in a buggy you have to be careful as the stinger cant take a hit or it will fall off. The OS 2060 again is an excellent pipe but it is designed for the Speed engine. If you have the stock V-spec i highly recommend the OS 2050 pipe for best results. I cant give an opinion on the Losi RE pipes as i have not tried them.

The os 2050 or 2060 depending on what kind of power band you want. I run a 2060 to smooth the motor out on bottom and it does give a better top end. The 2050 is more explosive on the bottom with a little less top, it also gets better fuel mileage. The losi RE11 is supposed to be a pretty good choice to from what I hear.

I seem to like the JP3 in buggy alng with a small carb venturi, for example 6-6.5-7 depending on my mood/need for fuel mileage.

try the hard ano dynamite 053 as it made my vspec in buggy mental bottom end..really to much and fantastic fuel economy with a screaming top end and its cheap.
have used the 2060 O.S on same engine and it was very similar to 053.also have a 2050 I used on this engine and was a little disapointed.

I am not positive that the RE10 is a 2060 copy the debate is still out to lunch on this one. I do know that the mugen 2042 is a 2060 copy and the RE11 is a 2050 copy.

The RE-10 is not a copy of the 2060, they are very different. I have no idea how the RE10 runs other than the local Losi sponsored driver runs it on this Dynamite platinum engines. They seem to work for him but he'd beat us with a 10 year old RTR car.

For all out power, use a EB/Mielke 2041 pipe set.
