Default Smoothest Pipe for RB WS7 III

Currently running the RB 2045 with a 7mm insert but my question is are there any other pipes which have a smoother powerband???



Thanks for your help

Nope.

Stick with the 2045. Big money pipe. What are you useing for clutch springs? Mine needed a real heavy clutch to get a good bottom. 2x 1.0 springs and a 1.1 should smooth out the bottom.

My WS7III was too smooth. I ran 3x 1.1.

Currently running an 808 with the stock 1.71g shoes and light springs. Is there any way to set up the clutch to hit earlier? I also ordered a 6mm restictor to try out anyone tried that?

2045 with 198 header works great for me, buggy or truggy, 7mm restrictor. Buggy gets carbon shoes with 1.0's, truggy gets aluminum shoes with 1.1's.

you could try these clutches, I recently got mine. These were suggested to my by a few owners of the 808 which I have as well. These come with three diffrent springs.

You could try going with the soft or medium clutch springs to help with your setup.

I have never seen an x-ray's clutch, but I imagine that you could run some mugen or ofna carbon shoes, just make sure the pin hole is the same and length of the shoe is close to the same, the ofna aluminum shoes are pretty long, I'm guessing their carbon ones are too
