I'm running OS V Specs and I am very happy with the mileage. In buggy I am using a 5.5mm restrictor and getting 9:30 on a tank. Truggy I am using a 7mm restrictor and getting 10:30-11 on a tank. Hard to beat that. Lot's that will match it, but not at the price of a V Spec.

v-spec gets the best runtime that I have experienced/seen so far. The speed and ninja JX are right on par with it. I would go with the ninja out of those 3. The new novarossi's (plus 4 and toro nero) are supposed to be pretty good too with the plus 4 being the better of the two.

Oh, forgot to mention I am getting 11 min with the v-spec with jp-3 on an extremely large track, getting about 13-14 on a medium track. Both of those are in a truggy, you can expect about a minute less in a buggy.

+1 on the V-SPEC. Thats what I run. I had the blue restrictor in and a 2060sc pipe, and still got 8 min plus. The key is the pipe sometimes, I've run the jammin pipes and got barely 5 min. Maybe all you need is a more efficent pipe to get better fuel economy.

Novarossi 21+4 I know of two around that are good for around 10 and half minutes with heavy throttle. Could go longer with a little feathering.

The above is dead on. I run the same with a dynamite 053. In a Truggy for the price the mileage and power. This is an excellent engine.

I have that same pipe. I am actually using the header from that pipe on my 053. Thats a top end pipe. You will be fine with that combo as the EVO2 has plenty bottom end. You don't have to worry about anyone walking you down on the straights and you can clear any jump with that engine. I almost clear most triples in my truggy. make sure you are not running silver or black springs in your clutch greens and golds is what you want. dynamite long life shoes 2 carbon and 2 alum or 4 alum.

We are seeing well over 10 minutes with our Slim S21BN's in buggy. They are made by Nova Rossi and for $275 they are a steal!
