Questions?? Best Pipe for OS 28 XZ?

Hi everyone. Looked for almost and hour and can't find this info in here, so thought I'd post a thread:

I have a brand new OS 28 XZ for my truggy. I bought the T-2060SC for it, but was told the 2050 rocks. So I bought a used 2050 for it. Plan to break in with the 2060 as it's already attached. Wanted to know what others have experienced. I have JP 1,2,3, and 4 and others (RB, LC etc). Not too concerned with mileage. Just want to know what would work. I know I should experiment, but thought I could cut down on research time and ask all you fine, knowledgable RC whizes!

Thanks in advance for any input.

That motor will get more than what you bargain for with the 2060 with respectable fuel millage for a .28, torque galore. I ran mine last season on a losi 2.0t and had to gear up to a 15t clutch bell as the stock 13 was good for tire spinning, same with the st-rr had to go 15.

I have tried loads of pipe combinations with this engine, including the ones you have mentioned.

For me the best pipe for all round performance and fuel economy was the HN2062 pipe which is the same as the JP4

Lol first off this engine has ridonculous power so it all depends on what u want if u want a load of on track power go with the 2050 but u might want to gear up as high as a 15 tooth. I have 3 of these engines and I ended up going threw alot of ring and pinions so ull need to shim ur diffs every full gallon u put threw it. However back on ur question I put the 2035 pipe on it and geared up to a 16 tooth so I could keep traction and it works well on very large wide open tracks especially cause I don't have parts breaking now. If u want insane f'n power go with the 2035 or 2050 and a 13-50 gearing and that thing will b ridiculous but like I said it's gonna b crazy n not usable at that point.

Cool. I'm already planning the 14/50 to start. I've got the 48 spur on order. Also plan on have 15 ready. I realize this will change everything as I was running JP mod VSPEC 21 with 13/50 or sometimes 12/50 for craziness. I looking mostly to bash at this point so useable power is all I care. What's a 2035? OS?

I run the same mota in my RC8T with a JP2 pipe on it, and it is a
good combo, fuel milage is ok, for a thirsty mota, but we only
run 6min races at our club, and i still have just under half a tank
of fuel left, good luck with ur choice of pipe....

The 086 pipes work very well on the OS .28XZ engine for all around performance and fuel mileage. Worth giving one a try

Wow! Lot's of different answers. Thanks everybody. Sounds like I still have quite a bit of experimenting to find what works for me. But narrowed down somewhat. I think I'll try both 2060 and 2050, then JP4 and JP3 or the RB 9886 in between.

On the 28xz I like the 2050 and the jp3 . The xz is a powerhouse but I have yet to find a pipe where it doesnt suck fuel .

I'm not concerned with fuel mileage. I'm bashing my LSP. Main reason I started this thread is I bought a BUKU pipe. I'd like to see my engine performing at it's peak, then try the BUKU and see if it's anywhere near the hype. I'm going to try it on my JP mod VSPEC in a buggy as well. First get it running best I can, then swap to the BUKU and tune according to their instructions. The technology of the BUKU makes sense to me, but like to see if I can tell the difference.
