Thanks. So far they are holding up fine. Our season is coming up so only time can tell.

I think it's the motor we've all been waiting for: bottom-end like a P5, smooth throttle curve, 421b top end, better balanced, no need for aftermarket head and should last a long time if you're good with maintenance. For what you're getting for the price it's a much better value than the P5 or 421b. It'll be my next motor for sure! (EB Mod flavor though ).

I too run a 421B and I run a 2011 Milkie pipe , I will tell you this combo is simply STELLAR !! ABSOLUTELY SMOOTH AND SILLY POWERFUL , I ran this engine in my MBX5 and now in my SP2 and it is just plain incredible to drive, it doesn't matter if the track is tight and technical or wide open this engine is sooooo easy to drive ! 1.0 springs with Mugen clutch bell on a modified Kyosho flywheel with Kyosho aluminium shoes !! And if anyon wants to send me there flywheel I can modify it for them so they can use a Mugen clutch bell ! The shoes will last for gallons instead of qualifiers !!

I just got the Prospec with a OS V-Spec. What is a good pipe for a technical course?

JP-1 or OS T-2050

Both pipes are great low torque pipes and are excellent for short tracks. Plus the Vspec reacts well to those pipes.

The V spec has a really punchy bottom end. Is the best all around purpose of mid and large tracks. Would you use a JP-2?

Im now a Mugen man!!

This buggy is all new to me so the first think I need to find is a great base setup. Maybe someone could help. This is my info.

I race in region 5 area. Ky,Oh,Tn and WV. The dirt varies from clay/dirt. It is mostly a dust hard pack track. All the track I run at are outdoor. I run a Vspec with Jp-2 pipe.
I was once told the Jason Ashton 04 Nats setup is the best starting point.

I was also told the Ashton setup is a really good starting point. I just put it in my prospec so I'll let you know. I would go with the o.s. 2050 with the vspec, just because you know o.s. basically designed the vspec with that pipe

Start with Ashton's 04' nats setup but use 400wt oil up front. The newer cars have more steering throw and they are less twitchy with one step heavier oil up front. If the track is very rough, run the inner shock mount hole on the rear a arm only. The car really floats through the ruts that way but is a little less stable on turn entry.
