what im wondering is if you run a exhaust cooler, and a fuel filter whould it make the engine harder to tune? man if the exhaust cooler, works good and a fuel filter thats a lot of, running time for a nitro buggy/truggy.

I've been running a RB cooler since they came out! I can't say anything negative about it. No flameouts for me. $19 is not that much to give it a try.

TC5man the Hut can be crap at times, one day I experienced two flameouts at the same part of the track. Let me say I rarely have flamouts, after taking a walk of the track after the main I noticed a man size crater that I believe was catching my 50t main gear and shutting my truck off.

do you have any pics of where, you install the cooler at . how much longer of fuel line do you need if you run, a fuel filter and a cooler together?

I’ve read using 2 small or one large fuel filter works just the same on the Exhaust line.
Obviously the inner filter is removed.Apparently the alloy on the filter housing is enough to cool it.
Depending whats available at your LHS in large or small filters

But would I buy one ofcoarse not.It’s a gimmick that will kinda work.

The alloy acts as a transfusion of inside and outside temps,for it to work it will need air passing it and for that to happen it will need either a fan pushing air past it or sit up outside of the body shell.
Any PC users will grasp the meaning of heat sinks working effectively.So why would this be any different.
