dont run vspecs
buy a novarossi and you will be happy
turbo plugs have better seal in the plug seat and a better flow of the combustion ball or detonation ball to expell the exhaust faster creating more power
use a hotter plug with lower nitro content but also depends on humidity , altitude and such of your area
shear friction and lack of lubrication heat will mess up the rod and make it lose its temper no really the rod will start to lose its temper above 300 or so and you will end up with a broken rod or bushing failure sooner or later
and besides that , think about how much a rod really gets stressed . alot

jp pipes are not the pipes for novarossi engines , trust me
since you already have the right header i would recommend buying a dynamite 086hs pipe only you will be happy guaranteed

idle gap at 1mm , low approx. 1 3/4 - 2 turns out , high approx. 3 1/2 -4 turns out , base race tune but not alll engines are like this , anomaly engines like to be about 1.5mm gap , low 2- 2 1/2 turns out , high 2 3/4 -3 1/4 turns out , cant tell ya why .

Is that the pipe your are using in a truggy or should I try a 9856 with the same header for more punch? I also have a longer header. I understand that longer headers will produce better bottom end at the expense of some run time, if that is correct? Also, what carb restrictor would you recommend for the buggy? I'm tying to take some of the power away so I can control it better. I have the stock restrictors in both engines now. How do the L or " ] " shaped headers affect performance and runtime? The only pipe I ran with that type or shape of header was the OS T-2050 on a V-Spec which hit pretty hard in the middle. Is that a characteristic of this type of header shape? Thanks. You said to ask questions and I usually have a lot of them.
two pipes i use 95% of the time are dynamite 086hs pipeset w/ header and 053mr pipe with the square header from ofna . novarossi perform the best but but $$$$$$ i ain't rich!!! try a plus 21-5(plus4) in the buggy , much smoother you can use restrictors to gain runtime but some designs of engines actually gain power from smaller res. as it creates a better air/fuel mixture i usually leave the 8mm in unless i need some runtime

Monty is the most helpful guy I have ever met at the track,almost to the point that he scraps his own races to help people outoh ya thanks again for the last minute battery pack that was charged and ready that you just happen to have in your pocket last year. If I was only fast enough to need a faster motor you would be the man I would ask. See you soon buddy!
