Default Best pipe for O.S. VZ-B V-Spec II?

Options are aplenty, but info is not. I've "narrowed" it down to 8 options:

Associated FT: http://67.199.85.166/main/productdetails.php?text=89175

Losi RE11: http://www.losi.com/Products/Feature...rodId=LOSR8001

Dynamite 053: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=DYNP5003

Dynamite 086: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=DYNP5005

Dynamite 007: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=DYNP5001

Either the Losi RE11 or the AE 2035. I've used them both. The RE11 is a little smoother but the 2035 gives a bit more power.

the AE 2035 works ok but the o.s. 2050 or 2060 are the best
I have the 2060 on a Pro Twister Mod v-spec and it screams

OS 2060 would be the best. Followed by the 2050 or RE11 (same thing, I personally use the RE11). The 053 is also a very good option. AE pipe is good as is the JP-3. Theres some options for you. Take your pick.

I have the RE-11 and the JP-3

Re-11 has a bit smoother powerband with a tad more low end and much better run times

JP-3 has a good enough low end, a better mid and a screaming top, with 2-4 minutes less runtime

OS 2060 (Mugen 2042 same pipe) OS 2050 (Losi RE11 same pipe). The 2060 will give you more top end the 2050 will cut the top end off a little bit. I have also been told that the JP3 works great too. Personally I would go with the OS 2060 or Mugen 2042 with the 2060 header or Mugen L shaped header. I have the Mugen 2042 with a L shaped header on an OS speed and I love it. I didn't like the 086 and the 053 pipe did ok it just was a little less responsive and cut the top end off. 053 and a long header was worse than the 053 and a med header or short header. Bottom line is 2060 is the best and 2050 is a good 2nd choice.

I have the RE10 on magnesium head speed and I like it. it has less top end i think than jp3 i think, but ton of bottome and very smooth.

I really don't like the cheap look of 2060 and played out chrome and that's why opted for the RE10.

Get some mothers alum polish and buff away. The pipe will shine like new and you will love the chrome finish like you did when it was new.

The OS 2060/Ninja 2042 or EB Mods/Mielke 2041 are the best pipes to use.

Holy sh!t, thanks for all the responses. I think I found a new homepage.

Anyhow, the reason I didn't list the OS pipes was because they are out of my budget (over $100). I only want to spend $60 on a pipe, and maybe $80 if [the] pipe is that much better.

I didn't know the Associated pipe was so good (mentioned in the same breath has the "re-badged" RE11 (OS 2050) and cult-favorite JP-3.

Thanks again for all the responses, I really do appreciate it!

Definitely the OS2060, a little more pricey, but it's worth it in performance and the long run.

EB Mods 2041 = best performance/mileage pipe available for the V-Spec

Smooth delivery like a 2060 but with the power of a 2050

Broader torque than a 2035 and longer revs like a 2013.

You can set you clutch heavier (.95 spring + high bite shoe) to smooth it out even more.

(Clutches last longer as do the bearings from reduced slip/ heat)

It's almost like driving an electric buggy.

Which sounds the best? I have a O.S 2050 but I can't hear it on the track.

The 2041 has the sound. The O.S. pipes are quiet.
