Default What pipe for a OS V spec

Need a new pipe and was wondering which one would be best for a OS V Spec Blue head.

I have been told an OS 2060.

Whats your thought?

I use an Associated 2035, its a great all around pipe and its half the price of a 2060.

The ae pipe is good, I prefer the 2050,if you can find it. OS pipes are as tough as nails though, in fact you could pound nails with them if needed.

I run the JP-3 and get good run times and temps in the 210 - 220 range. I've heard but not tested myself, the OS 2060 pipe allows for an almost minute gain in run times and lower or the same running temps. If you read around these boards or search you can read up on it.

Good Luck... Great engine - make sure you have a very good air filter.

FWIW, the guy at the hobby shop (Perth RC ?) at Stirling Street recommended a Eureka Pro 2027 when I bought my Vspec a couple of year ago.

I run the JP3 and I also have the 2050. Both are great but I get a bit more run time with the 2050.

I would run the pipe that EB Mods produced specifically for the Vspec. There much cheaper than the OS line of pipes hard coated and were designed for the best runtime and power. I beleive www.rccompound.com has them on there site.

Run a OS 2050 if you can find one...My next choice would be a thunder tiger 2035 nd after that would be a os 2060......2050 will give you the best run time and won`t hurt the top end....Thunder tiger acts the same as a 2050 but run time isn`t there....A 2060 will give you better top end but you will see that it effects the bottom end.........If you run a small track use the 205 or the TT 2035..If your going to run a big track try the 2060.....I have tried all 3 pipes on modded vspecs and stock vspecs
