I run my Vspec with the 2060. Haven't tried with other pipes coz I don't own others...

Generally, it sounds good. . Pretty smooth power and I can get 10mins out of a it. Frankly not too sure if it's due to the Vspec or the pipe. I've read in other forums that 2050 pipe would be the better choice.

Having tried a few other combinations, on both my OS SPEED and standard VZ-B Vspec motors, the pipe that had the smoothest and best power was the OS 2060. A lot of the fast guys around here run the SPEED with the 2050 and the TTR 2035 for buggy. You will lose some fuel mileage with the JP3, though it does have good power to it.

I currently get 7.5-8 minutes on the OS Speed with the 2060. (with the 8mm restrictor in, as the 7mm causes too much power loss for truggy). With a good clutch setup (for truggy) its the smoothest power delivery and best fuel mileage you can buy.

On the flipside of that argument would be a case in point where a local pro (last weekend) beat the entire truggy expert class by one full lap at the end of a short qualifier, and was almost one and a half seconds faster per lap running a bone stock Jammin X1CRT with the POS Jammin .28 and a jp3. talk about embarrassing.. purely outdriven.

Definitely driving was the thing to better lap times but that POS Jammin .28 and stock CRT must have done something right just to be able to drive that well and get that far ahead of the pack!

No doubt.. The lesson I take away from it is that so long as your equipment is reasonably reliable, well tuned, and race ready, the driver makes the rest happen.

I was quite stoked to see a Jammin truggy do so well bone stock (not even big bore shocks on it, or a BCE chassis) and it was clearly a win due to driving ability (the level of driving you see only at big races in the A main).

When I made the switch from the VZ-B Vspec to the OS SPEED motor originally I noticed the top end increase in RPMs and the extra power, but even now my lap times are nearly the same because of the lack of traction.

I think that learning consistency has helped me get much faster.. Losing a tiny bit of time each lap being conservative (single single before tight corner) verses gaining that small bit (doubling and landing perfectly on the brakes) and crashing one out of every 5 laps.

but now I am off topic.

I didn't drive truggy this last year but the year before I drove a completely stock CRT and a V spec and if I drove well I could beat anything. I came 2nd in our Canadian CORCS Championship with that setup. Also the CRT was bulletproof even without a Z brace. The only thing I ran different was the Ofna silver clutch shoes and the gold springs as the blue shoes wore down way to fast.

Once in a while I remember that slow is fast sometimes....LOL!

Does anyone or has anyone tried the Werks 2013 pipe on a V-spec?

Post Bullit R/C Performance pipe is the MSR 1005

The Bullit MSR 1005 is your best choice for the V-Spec. There is a few hobby shops that carry it. Its a very high quality Japanese aluminum pipe. Search Bullit R/c Performance on Yahoo.

I've run the 2013 on the V-spec runs like the 2050 only worse fuel mileage. Sounded bad ass thou Never heard a louder pipe than the werks 2013. Sounds like a pissed off tiny dirt bike.

On a side note I've always run the 2050 on my v-specs with great results. They have killer punch and silly run time. (8 minutes in 5R on a loamy red clay track). Recently I borrowed a 2060 as my jb weld job on the pressure nipple came off and I'm to cheap to buy a WN pipe. I'll never run the 2050 in the buggy again. The 2060 is just smoother everywhere with maybe even a little more top end. In truggy I'd reach for the 2050 hands down as I want punch in my 5T.
