Lightbulb Post Up Pics of Vintage / Rare Nitro Tuned Pipes!

Hey guys,

I have been into RC nitro on and off road since the early 90's, and to me it seems like the tuned pipes "of the past" seemed to be SO much better performers than the pipes of today... (maybe it's just me). -i have regretfully sold alot of my RC cars and engines of the past, but when I found a good pipe, I held onto it! My personal collection includes a TON of Paris Racing Pipes, Duratrax pipes, and a few O.S. Pipes.

So... I wanted to start a post where members posted up pics of vintage tuned pipes of the past. I will post up my pics as soon as I get my camera from work!

Please share any vintage pipes and your experiences!

theres pipes for all out power and there are pipes that balance power/mileage and there are pipes that rob power for mileage
