Default Pipes for MBX6?

Hey, I just bought an MBX6 and once i finished building it I realized that the JP-1 pipe I have is too big. Does anyone know of any pipes aside from the O.S. 2060 that fits well in the MBX6 and also happens to work well?

What engine do you have for it? You can't just slap on any pipe buddy. I've heard that the MXB6 is a tight squeeze but damn I didn't know it was that tight! LOL

Anyone try fitting the dynamite pipes on there MBX6, I'm really hoping there going to work but they didn't leave much room there, wonder what the thought process was for that.

Dynamite 086 fits well, you will need a longer pipe wire to reach it. Everything will be a tight fit on this one...

I'm running a jp3 with a 2050 header. Makes great power with good mileage. You do need to dremel out the plastic lower guard.

Can you say hijack?! LOL, j/k...all you guys are giving him pipe suggestions without even knowing what engine he's running? What if it ends up running like a piece of turd? Let's wait till he chimes in on his mill before we all pound him with pipe suggestions.

You gotta use the pipe that works with your motor and track... you may have to trim some of the mud guard away to make the pipe fit, same deal with the MP9.



you just need to trim a little recess in the mudguard where the nipple on the end hangs over. it might rub on the body a little but its not a big deal!

Hmm.. Well Since its a buggy I assumed his mill is more than likely a .21cc with 3 to 8 ports and running on 20 or 30% nitro So the pipe I suggested should work fine and since it fits in a MBX6 like he asked, I gave him an answer. "What pipe fits in a MBX6?" "A JP3 with a 2050 header." Furthermore if you don't own one and you've only heard its a tight fit why would you even comment if you knew what motor he has. And its beyond me why someone would post a pic of a MP9 when hes asking about a mbx6.

I have the MBX6 and I running a OS Speed with the JP-4 with the os 2050 manifold, unfortunately the JP-4 manifold is to big and it sticks out wide and the body doesnt fit.
