Default Advice needed on a new pipe 1/8 pipe

Im looking to get a new pipe for my 1/8 on roader. The question is which one to get? The few that i have been looking at are: RB (9886) 86 / RB 2006/ or the maxpower tuned pipe. The engine i will be using is the Rb c5. Is it really recommended to stick with the engine manufactures pipes or does it really make no difference? Any advice is appreciated thanks.

2018 pipe from MAX is pretty good.

I'd get a 3 chamber pipe no matter what. 9886 is a good pipe, but it's a 2 chamber. A lot of clubs are going with the INS box and 3 chamber pipes to keep the noise level down.

in France we must run with inbox filter and 3 chamber pipe for the race,but in practise out of the race we can run with any pipe and filter we want

but i run everytime with inbox filter,i hate touch my engine,for the pipe last year i ran with 086(chut...don't say that at anyone)and this year i have a novarossi 9886,and a 2015...

for the race we have the national race(french championship)where a lot of control are done(fuel--->25% maxi,pipe,weight,width...) and regional championship where few controls are done(you can run with 30% nitro,and 086 pipe...but you should not get caught),and i just do the regional championship because my level is not enough high to go with top drivers,and the price for a race is expensive(hostel,displacement,race which proceeds over 3 days...)

if you want a good pipe 9886 is good,inform you at your track if they want a particular pipe or filter...and if they want 3 chamber you can take 2015

Thanks for the response. So will a 3 chamber benefit in powerband or will it only benefit in noise level. I do run the INS box right now.

depends on the pipe. all the newer novarossi pipes will be 3 chamber as no more r&d will be put into the 2 chamber pipes (for 1/8 scale). this is because that efra requires both the INS box and 3 chamber pipe. So the 3 chamber pipes should, in theory, be better than the 2 chamber pipes.

Since my home track requires the Ins/3 chamber pipe, I'm running the JP 2031 pipe. Pretty strong performance on both top and bottom end of the rev range. You'll also find that the 3 chamber pipe will help with fuel economy (especially with the new engines that were designed around the Ins/3 chamber combo).

I'm on the JP 2031 as well which I use with a JP RX-01 and I find it has good power throughout the engine's power band.

You can now get the 2031H, hard version. I was hit by an MRX-4 which crushed my first 2031. A harder version is much appreciated.

Very short stinger with a wider exhaust bell. I wonder what perfomance is like? It's Novarossi so you know it's got to be pretty good.

So.. Is the JP 2031 the better PIPE than the RB 9886? I dont think 2 chamber or 3 chamber matters at this point.

Both are really good choices, you wouldn't go wrong in choosing either one. If I was in your position, I would choose one of the 3 chamber pipes especially since you are using the INS box anyways.

Up to date performance, better fuel mileage, and lower noise levels. All good reasons to go with any of the newer novarossi(or novarossi based like the JP and RB) pipes.

I believe the jp 2031 made for R03 engine only...

Joe OS - um no. it may have been designed for the JP R03, but it can be used with great success with any of the other .21 motors. It isn't any different than using the 2006, 2013, 2015, 2018, etc. All are 3 chamber pipes with each having a slightly different affect on the powerband and fuel economy.

Oh yeah, I'm using this pipe with my TOP R1 WC with good results.

The 2018, 3 chamber, is a milage pipe works well makes good power - we used it at the Nationals in Florida. If you can wait RB is coming out with a 2013 pipe - it screams and gets great milage.
