Default Can someone recommend a muffler for my Buggy?

Hey guys, I drive a Kyosho 1/8 Scale Inferno Buggy with an OS 21VG Engine (rear Exhaust). I still have my stock muffler and want an upgrade. I just want something good and reliable and better than the Kyosho stock one. As far as my needs, I love top-end speed, but I also love quick bursts of acceleration, I would hate to have to choose between the two, and I only drive on soft dirt, and only at an official track. Anything come to mind? Thanks!

I'm not too familiar with OS engines. But I ran one once w/ a JP-3 on it and it worked great. Good acceleration, top end, and fuel economy. But, someone else might have a better suggestion.

Dymamite 053 is a good sure bet - the JP pipes are ok too

The 053 is a mid-range pipe... doesn't kill the bottom, doesn't run out on the top. I run in on my VSPEC in a truggy...

The 053 pipes are good for a vspec the best pipe out there is an os 2060 but its pricey, the os 2050 is a great pipe as well just a little less top end. I run an OS speed and it did ok with the dyn 053, I was told to put an os 2060 pipe on it and I ended up with a Mugen 2042 (OS 2060 copy) and a Mugen L shaped header. This combo was night and day difference from the 053. I had more bottom and tons more top. It depends on where you want it to perform better at. 2060 is the smoothest all over performance pipe. the 053 will perform best in the mid-range and the 2050 will perform like the 2060 with a little less top and a little more bottom.

Here are some links:

Dyn 053

OS 2050

OS 2060

Mugen 2042

Thanks for the links Frank.
Most of those are kinda pricey though, but I'm finding the 053's for under $50, that may be more in my budget .
