Questions?? New to racing help

I just bought a rc8 factory team with a novarossi 21 bf and a jp2 pipe. I know I like the AE but any thoughts on the engine and pipe? I have never raced and want to make the jump from basher to racer. I can talk nitro trucks all day but not buggys and truggys. Thanks for any and all feedback.

The 086 is the best all around pipe and header for the 21 bf

i used a 053 on my .21bf last week and run time was crazy! im not going to tell you how long it ran on a tank for the purpose of everybody jumping in and saying it is not possible, but 086 or 053 is your best pipe for this mill

the dynamite pipes are better built though imo. i had a stinger get bent on my ofna 053 pipe couple races after i put it on my buggy and bought a dynamite 086 pipe and it has a brace on it to keep it from bending. the dynamite pipes are cheaper anyways.
