Default Turbo Head Button for Losi 454 Motor

Hey,

I was wondering if the turbo button for the Losi 454 would be a good purchase? What performance changes should I expect with the turbo button compared to the standard? For $20 I am sure it is worth the price. I am using this motor for now as a practice and backup motor for my Ninja JX.21 but want to get some better performance and run time.

Also what pipe would you recommend with this motor? I don't really want to buy another pipe for this motor but the ones I currently own are a OS 2060 and Losi RE11. Which out of the two would you use?

Thanks

The turbo head button and RE11 (along with 30%) on the 350 turned it into a whole new engine. Well worth the money on that mill and I would assume you'd see the same results.

Run times went up and temps went down 30-40 degrees for me.
