The guy from the cheese state is right.

Ether will work well. They are a fine tuning option.

Just to throw in a vote, I like the 2060.

I have both pipes and in the truggy I like the 2060. The 2050 hits harder onn the bottom but it really chops the top off on the speed engine. The 2050 also sucks more gas. The 2060 pipe is a perfect all around pipe, it's not soft on the bottom at all and it let's the speed engine wind out on the straight. Bottom like is if you try them both you will put the 2060 back on and nevr change it.

I'm about to try my truggy out today with a 2060 on my Speed. I've been running the 2050 for the last few times at the track. I'll be interesting to see how it affects the engine. With 13/50 gearing, I seem to be winding out about 1/3 the way down our 200 ft. front straight. Could be the pipe, could be the gearing.

I'm good on the infield, just would like a tad more top end on the straight. If it's still winding out early, but is still strong on the infield, I'm going to jump up to a 14T CB, and see how that works. Hopeully it won't raise temps too much.

2050 kills the speed. Go 2060 and you'll not look back. Losi RE10 works real well on speed. More topend than 2060.

Well, hambone's right....the 2060 was aces in the Speed today. Much smoother power delivery. Still had all the bottom end that I needed for the jumps, but revved out better on the straight.

Next, I'm tweaking my gearing and clutch to get a bit more stall, and just a tick more top end. I think the higher stall will offset the jump from a 13t to 14t bell.

If you're planning to buy a pipe, get the 2060. Then you can try someone's 2050...honestly though, my 2050 is likely to stay in the pit box most of the time. I may put it on if it's really hot and humid, when the engine won't be making as much power period. In those cases, the extra bottom end may be helpful.

My 2050 saw one race day and then in the box.....
