Default Buku pipes

i've seen a review of this pipe on rcmonstertruckforum.com and it got a good review. anyone else try this pipe? i see it is $109.00 bucks. pretty steep for a pipe, but i guess it's an all in one pipe. you can tune the powerband and get more low end, mid and top end. looks pretty cool, just wondering if anyone has given it a try.

Don't mean to de-motivate you bro, but these adjustable pipes aren't legal for sanctioned races, and it makes your engine harder to tune. If you have any high speed projects in mind, they would serve you great! Back in the late 90's MIP had CVEC pipes too, now they're nowhere to find

the pipe is awesome and for tuning it looks hard as first just by looking at it ....my race buddy name mrzero he use that name on here as well ..but anyway buku send him the pipe to test it with different engines and what i saw the pipe is awesome and tuning is done in minutes....my opinion pipe is worth $109

Too bad this pipe is noe legal for sanctioned events... the 109 bucks are 1055 worth it, it is amazing, easy to tune if you follow the manual, it gives you an incredible range of adjustment posibilities and best of all... you will notice the power difference, its like if you were feeding your engine with NOX.

I am running this pipe in my buggy together with an LRP.28 engine... INSANE INSANE INSANE. I had to use a 7mm carburetor restrictor and tuned the pipe for high speed and even so the car gets launched like a freeking rocket.

Well, it is extremely well built, well thought and the best of all... it really works, it isnt just a crazy idea.

Here is a pic of it in my buggy... well, just a tiny part of it.

What about when the pipe starts getting gunk built up inside? I would imagine the mechanism inside the pipe would start getting stuck.

If you are going to bash it's probably one of the best pipes you can get. Without a doubt if I was building a basher again I would go with this pipe. A friend of mine has one on his Revo and it's insane. Great pipe.
