The A Plus Femca 0801 pipe is really good you can get it from www.rcproproducts.com or www.trackstarrc.com the sirio 2013 and the mielke 2041 are also good pipes check out the Alpha thread on here and see what other people are using

It depends on where your at. In the US there are maybe 6 ROAR rules races in the country that might not allow the pipe. Any of the other races the pipe should be legal.

Hope it helps a bit....

IMO, If you're looking at the 2013 and concerned about mileage, you should consider the 2057. In my experience, it is a little softer on bottom, but opens up the top end. On my Ex Tech mills I was able to push 8 mins or so with the 13, 9+ easily with the 57.

With the F850 the 2013 or 2041 actually gives better mileage than most of the other pipes. The new 0801 we are selling seems to work as good if not better.

Of course some of this also depends on your driving style too. For the most part when we test anything we test it with drivers who are on the throttle heavy instead of someone easy on the throttle.

Hi, I have one of these engines Alpha RC F850 Engine (ARCBT5PA) and the Turbo Button head is cross threaded a little, does anyone know where I can buy just the button head? I found a website in Spain that sells them, but surely there's a place in the Usa
Thanks for your time.
