That rule should have no impact for running here in the US. It's just a Europe thing.

i dont see that JP-3 pipe being any better than the Mugen MSR 1005.

i wasnt too happy with the JP-1 and 2 performance on my REX P5. i was more satisfied on the performance of the novarossi/rex 086 over those two pipes.

i will see how it goes when the results come out..

i might go to a JP-2 before i try the JP-3. i have the JP-1 now and people say that i should use the JP-2 because although it is more for medium to top end, it gives you great bottom as well. i don't notice that much more "umph" with the JP-1 on the bottom that i was expecting.

Are you running the JP-1 on the RB S-5 in your sig? You might want to try lightening your clutch shoes slightly. Everybody I know that runs RB's tell me that the JP-1 and 063 are by far the best for them.

I have a Collari B7 that I need to get a JP-2 for. I was running my Nova 9886 today and got a dent that looks like a hatchet wound in the side of it. Runs great but those Nova pipes are just too delicate for me.

Your S5 is lacking bottom end?!?!

I ran a 13 tooth bell, Jp-1, and the Blue Jammin Alum. shoes with the 1.1 springs. It had redicuous bottom end. It had too much at times when it was slick out.

yes, it does. when i am at the line with the other buggies which all have at least 7 ports, it's like my S5 is dragging piano. mind you, i have the same top end as the other guys, but it just lacks on the bottom. i was thinking about getting it modded for more bottom, but it's a little late now.

i am running the black springs that the blue clutch shoes come with. those are the heavy ones, right? maybe i should use the gold ones to get better bottom end.

Macnkitty, try lightening the shoes first. That usually works better than stiffer springs (less slip). Maybe try a leaner low speed needle setting too and see if that helps throttle response off of the bottom end.

I am not familiar with the Ofna components. 1.0mm is the standard clutch spring from most companies.

OFNA Gold springs are 1.0's.

The only pipe I've found that makes any bottom end with ANY RB engine is a JP-1.

Im AZRCaddict's frind he is referring to. I got the JP-3 in today and compared it to my JP-2 and found it to have the same dimensions. Its installed on my Ninja MR21 and I will be running it tonight. I'll post back my findings. Jay Halsey has been quoted as saying it will provide a low end punch with out sacrificing the top end. And provide better fuel mileage vs. the JP-1/2. Im honestly expecting to see a compromise between the JP-1 and JP-2. I'll give a report back later on tonight.

Well heres the low down for ya. The JP3 is flat out a compromise between the JP1 & 2. It has a good bottom end punch but not as good as the JP1. It has good Top end but not as good as the JP2. I wouldnt go as far as calling it a midrange pipe cause it has much better top and bottom when compared to a lot of other pipes. It is much quieter and a bit more fuel efficient. I wouldnt say that this pipe can replace the JP-1 or JP-2 cause I can imagine tracks where those pipes will out perform the JP-3. I will say I like it. For the tracks I race on I think it will fill the bill just fine. Sorry I cant sugar coat it anymore then that but its a pipe. Not a whole lot else can be said.

It sounds like a good choice for the engines I run. Where did you buy it?
