I ran the losi 8 and 8t for a few gallons a couple years and found that I really liked the losi clutch design . The best setup I had found for buggy and truggy was the combo similar to your description. I used two losi blue aluminum shoes w/gold springs and two losi carbon shoes with green springs , make sure you scuff the anodizing off the shoes and to scuff the clutchbell also .

Which is probaly why that other racer is using 1.1 springs with his car to try and gain some low end by putting a high stall on the clutch .

If you want the best runtime you will use the 9901ss/41021 or 41005. With either of these combos you will get the best runtime available period !!

If you want a little more power from low all the way to the top then use 9853ss/41001 or 41005

Thanks man,that's what I wanted to know.
Is there any other pipes that would do the same thing as the 9853??
What about that O.S. 2060 pipe,would that be good with the 41005 bent manifold.Just looking for overall performance and good fuel mileage with more towards the top end.

i have the same car as you. what pipe/engine are you running? I have an axial .28rr in mine with a modified kyosho stock pipe. I also have a 2 bend header on it. It has crazy mid and top. and to be honest the bottom is pretty impressive. I have 5k diff oil in the center diff and the front tires spin so fast, they expand so big they hit the body on the straight and almost rip it off. I'm thinking about putting some thicker oil in so the front dont spin so bad. I took the pipe apart (it 2 piece and screws together) and i drilled the hole in the cone bigger and drilled the outlet bigger. I was jus playing around because i have a couple of these pipes, but it runs better than it did with my dynamite top end pipe. i get 8-9 minutes out of it.

9886/41020

not much experience with the 2060 pipe . i have seen it used on novarossi engines and it did seem to work fairly well , more than i could say for the 2050 on a novarossi engine .

I run a Ninja MR28 with an Ofna 086 pipe set.
The car itself is all stock.I don't know too much about the oils and diffs,so I'm of no help,but what a great buggy..
