mrgsr,
This would be perfect for what you are looking for.
Relitively inexpensive, good power for the price, and easy to tune.
I would say to stick with an OS brand exhaust, they seem to fit the powerband of the engine nicely.

You will like the OS VZR, it runs great. The best part of it when you wear it out, the cost for a new piston and sleeve is $109 at Tower Hobbies. The cost for the others (RB, Novarossi, JP) are rediculous.
