I ran the 2035 (3 chamber 053) on my Speed for a while and really liked it. The fuel mileage was similar although the 2060 felt more linear.

Ive got the Ninja pipe and its exactly the same as the 2060 but with the cool etching. Its even more expensive than the 2060 though. I just happen to get mine off ebay for a steal.

The OS pipes are worth the money. I highly recommend spending the money because they last so long. Ive got a 3 year old 2050 that will polish up to look like brand new and all the holes for the springs are still good. There isnt any other pipe Ive used that lasted anywhere near this amount of use and its not even close to done.

My 2060 still polishes up great too.

The only pipe that is the same as the OS 2060 is the Mugen 2042. If you are running on a Mugen truggy or buggy I recommend geting the Mugen pipe because it is doesn't come with the header and then getting the Mugen MBX6 80 header. It makes the pipe fit better in the truggy and buggy. In the MBX6 buggy you have to go with the Mugen Header because of the narrow chassis. In the truggy you don't need it and you can use the stock header that comes with the OS pipe, but the Mugen Header still fits better. I found a good deal on eBay for the OS pipe and header but still purchased the Mugen header and have the stock OS for a spare.

The Losi RE10 is similar to the OS 2060 but it is not the same. The RE10 is a bit snappier on the bottom but is not as nice on the top and doesn't feel as smooth through the power band. Easy way to tell it's not the same is the tune was different.

As far as I am able to tell the RE11 is the exact same as the OS 2050.
Sorry if this is hard to understand it was typed on my iPhone.

Yup ebay is amazing for 2060's. Another member called rc-willpower is where I got mine for $117. LOL what would you choose, $160+ at a Amain, or $117 on eBay. He has another one for sale as well.

I'd choose a mugen pipe from Tony so you can choose your own header. $130.
