Thanks for the info. Maybe Nova will make a head. Theres are around 35 and I heard are pretty good. Though, I am hoping its not necessary.

No problem right now, the season is still awhile away here so no rush.

NO AFTERMARKET HEAD IS NEEDED~!!!!!
O.S. Pipe is the best.
JP-2 or Jp-3 is nice as well.

086 is a RPM pipe.If you have a BIG track(150+) and care only about straight away power then have at it.
With this pipe you will loose a lil low end rip.Just a lil.

i'm with tex.....i really don't think you'd need an aftermarket head for your vg.

i'm not familiar with nova heads.....but there are only three company's i'd buy a head from.......os rocket, king headz or o'donnell....but i don't think os rocket or o'donnell makes a head (i could be wrong) for the vg as yet.

buy yer'self a vg (you can find 'em for around 140), seal it (carb, fuel nipple and back plate) and get a jp-2 pipe and couple gallons of your favorite flavor of 30%, a few spare plugs, break it in, and you should be set for the season.

30% = more power...motor runs cooler.

run 20% in .12's.

Part of the catch here is what the OS RG does best. It makes low end power. If you run the JP-2, JP3 or .053 Dynamite Platinum pipe you are comming in at just around $200 for your engine system.
The Dynamites are clones of Novarossi/RB .063 - .053 and .086. They have been modified with an improved stinger so it won't fold over in a crash. The pipe and header is about $59 and they are beautiful.
Any of these combinations will pull a heavier clutch with no problem due to the torque.
A lot of guys try and run the clutch too soft and it slips. Then they try to tune it in with the carb. Motor gets hot and they blame it on the motor.
Run a clutch setup that will engage solidly and if you have to, drop a tooth on your clutch bell.
The motor will run cool and if it is like my setup, everyone will swear you are running a highly modified motor.
You will get about 8 - 8 1/2 minutes of run time in races at 240 - 250 degrees.
What are you running it in????

Thats part of why I was looking at the VG was that what everyone says is that it makes great low end power, so I figure a high end type pipe would be a good combo for overall power band. Could be wrong here, if so no problem, would love a good explanation.

Loosing alittle low end rip is ok, I figure it won't be as twitchy as long as its just alittle. :lol"

You also need to look at the size of the track you are racing on. If it is medium size you should look at the 053 pipe or JP3. If it is a larger track were max rpm is needed use the 086 or JP2. For a small track the JP1 is great.

the track is not small. i'd say it's medium to big. i don't quite know the length and width. but in the middle of medium to big.

running the vg in a hyper 7.
