Default Trinity Big Boy Pipe

Anyone have any good informayion about this pipe. I'm thinking about getting the Trinity ExTech "II" Pre-Run "Full Modded" .24 engine. It's one ugly looking thing but I've heard it's amazing! Anyone try it out yet???

The Extechs LOVE this pipe. Great runtimes for sure. I think i smooths out the low to mid a bit but still screams on top. And it's not that ugly. Kinda grows on ya.

I just bought one of these pipes and have the X-tech .21 modded engine. I will be running it this weekend as well and I will report my findings. BTW I had to cut up my mudguards a little (MBX-6) to get in in without bending the stock header. It is kinda wierd looking I agree.

Default extech 24 and bat pipe

I've got the full mod 24 and bat pipe. the pipe is actually kinda nice. It's polished and looks like it could be used for a weapon. today was the first time I got to run the combo and I was only able to run it twice with no real feedback. even though the motor was running really rich it already feels like it's going to be extremly fast. It's got a throaty sound to it unlike anything I've heard before. I should be able to run it some more to get an idea of what the fuel mileage is going to be like. lack of power won't be your problem.

the long header and short pipe is going to put it at a strange angle. I cut the body on my RC8T so it wouldn't rub and had to make an extra long pipe hanger.

Big boy is the bomb. Don't let ugly scare you.

I'm running the X-Tech 2.0 full mod with big boy and stock header. I used to run the 2013 pipe because I really like the low end grunt that pipe had.

After trying the Big Boy it smoothed out the entire power band without loosing anything. It also increased my runtime to upwards of 12 minutes where the 2013 only would get about 8 1/2 minutes pushing it.

I know that Chad had Colby and Trevor testing pipes and we have tried out quite a few ourselves. The Big Boy is hand's down the best pipe for the X-Tech's.(Not sure about other motors but I'm sure alot of the same will apply) Nothing else even compares. Hope you enjoy!

So, I just ran about 1/2 tank through the "Bat" pipe. I am running it on a Jammin JPX .21, which is the mill I will have for Truggy @ MotoRama (will be running ET's in my buggy for the summer ) Anyway, all I can say is...WOW! Now, granted, I havn't had it on a track yet, so I can't say right now what it will be like in racing form...but just beating around in my back yard, there's a huge difference compared to the JP3 I had on it. Nice low burbling idle, bottom is solid, SICK mid range to top. All in all, I think Im gonna really like this exhaust and can not wait 'til Friday to practice on track!

I am thinking about picking up one of these pipes, the Sirio version, in the next couple of days. Planning on running it on either GRP .21 or GRP .28. Would like more feed back from owners if possible. My other option is to go with the Ninja/2060 pipe.

Mine is the Sirio version. Also, I can not confirm this, but I've recently read that the GRP is similar to the Jammin. No clue how true that is so take this with a grain of salt. Anyway, as noted above, so far I'm ecstatic about how it feels. I will have a better evaluation come next Monday.

Found the Trinity version from a local dealer for $55. Way better deal than the Sirio version at A-Main for $88.

Anyone use this pipe with a grp .21? I have a powerhouse modded grp and I'm looking for a new pipe. I have used a 2053 and dynamite 053. These are decent just looking for more options.

I plan on testing mine first on a GRP tuned .28. That could change though. I have a new Powerhouse GRP .21 in my buggy coupled to an MSR-1005 pipe. If I don't like the feel of that combo I'll put the Bigboy on and give it a shot.
