Thanks guys !

I used the AE tuned pipe. It is my best all around tuned pipe. I run it with all my engines in my buggy and truggy.

MadMaxx -> You find out that I speak French... I'm done ! LOL You can copy it if you add a link to my website.

i actually just posted the direct link to your review instead of C+P

can i get a model number for the tuned pipe? and what % nitro are you running?

i was thinking to try the jp-4 or the LOSI re-11 with mine, i will be installing in a CORR style conversion

the port size and shape looks very similar to the mach.26 series, how quickly does it go through 125ccs?

No leak with the front bearing.

I din't "officialy" time the runtime but it was between 7 and 8 minutes in normal use conditions.
