RE 10 and 2060 have identical power off the bottom and midrange but the RE10 gives some more top end..Both pipes feel pretty much identical other then the RE10 has more RPM on top

Thanks for all the help guys. Jason whats your opinion on the 2035 or re10?

Your stuff must last forever. Your driving style is so reserved at least it seems that way. I never hear your cars sounding all whined out. Seems like you just ease around the track.

I'm not sure when i'll get a new motor. i'm still gonna run the losi 454 til it dies. I'm just doing my research now. The losi motor may last me the rest of the season and maybe next year i'll buy all new gear and go premium with everything. This is my first year racing so i'm just trying to get a feel. This is my third nitro vehicle but my first one to actually race.

Lol you know what they say smooth is fast. The tracks we run on the 2035 is the ticket, alot of short run ups and big jumps you need the pop. I wish they lasted forever that would be nice.

the re10 blows my re11 away on my ninja. It's not even close really. I love that pipe. I love the way it keeps spooling up, and the notes that come out of that thing!

even with the bargin you get on ebay, i could still get 2 pipes for the price of the 2060. and 3 at retail price.

any of the losi/dynamite/associated pipes.

180 for a pipe is flat out ridiculous. that is the cost of alot of engines. The markup is on brand name alone, as losi and dynamite can make the same pipe with the same quality for much less. I would love to see a side by side comparison of the re10 vs 2060 on my ninja.

O.S. has ridiculous prices on some of thier stuff. A speed motor with a 2060 = at least 700$$$$ That is 200 more then my car and several hundred more then a entire electric conversion.

great stuff but overpriced. The ninja is a hot bargin as far as i am concerned.

For the money i think the ninja is the best out there the b5 is good for 200 but doesn't hold up like a ninja, my ninja has like 7-8 gallons and still has a decent pinch runs and tunes awesome, original parts except I put TKO ceramics in it about 3 gallons ago. I'll retire it at 10 and put a new p/s/r in and bam got a new engine the case, head, carb are all great shape.

Yeah i'm a penny pincher and have a hard time with the rip off factor of this hobby. But it is really fun and i get alot of enjoyment out of it so i just suck it up.

As you should. LOL

I still feel the 2060/2042 is the best pipe for OS engines. The RE10 is a very close second. And for the price, the RE10 is certainly the best value. Like Maximo said, the 2060 and RE10 are very similar in performance with the RE10 having a bit more top end RPM.
