its just an asighned number given by ROAR femca or efra for racing depending on your country usa is roar, europe is efra etc etc.

not all pipes are suited to all motors its best to run the same motor and pipe brand to start of with or ask around the forum

086 = top end pipe
007 = high torque pipe
053 = mid range pipe

but what engine are you wanting to put the pipe on? like its already been said not all pipes work great on all engines.... you can usually get by with the 053 but you could loose tons of run time or just not the right power. i think i have 6-8 pipes and i hardly ever use the same pipe on more than 1 engine... except the JP3, ive ran it on quite a few engine and it work great but some engines im only getting 6 min a tank but i like the power.

I try to collect used pipes off my racer buddys so I'll have a pipe for whatever I end up running.

its running cold... you should be able to pit at 7-8 easy with that stock losi RTR pipe but most people run the 350 at 240-260 degrees. BUT how much fuel has been ran threw that engine? that engine will get better and better run time as you get fuel threw it. about the 2 gallon mark youll peak on run time and youll get around that for the rest of the life of the engine.

Hahaha. I got the motor that day of the race an ran the motor to half tank 8 times and made sure it was up to 200. Degrees andshut it off at half tank and let it cool off each time. I also used 4 head shims during all of this so I would not hurt the rod. I used a heat gun everytime too start it. So I got a little less that a gallon on it. And the damn thing still has pinch it.

oh dang, just keep running it, dont change a thing except take i think 2 of those shims out. those engines are kinda slow and suck the fuel for about 2 gallons and then they are actually pretty decent engines, you should be getting around 8 min easy!
