He did, I'm buying one! Thanks Garen.

Garen,

Who retails these? What is the street price of the P8C?

Thanks

Garen, of all the current Novarossi based pipes (2015,2018,086,etc) used for on-road what would have the smooth powerband needed for this class. I plan to drop in the 3 or 5 port Novarossi based sportsman engine. I know the combo comes with a pipe, any idea what it is?

I don't know what pipe it is, but I assume it is made by Novarossi (the engine is), the pressure fitting is on the side, it sounds very different from other pipes, and considering the cost, I think it is perfect for these cars.

Zoot, if you want one soon, let me know quick. Incoming shipment is nearly sold out.

The pipe is made by Novarossi,its under the sportsman engine section. They show the part number for the header and pipe. The cost appears to be about 1/2 what the standard stuff is.
I have a new 086 but its the old style that uses a silicone coupler. Has anyone seen the old style on-road headers anywhere. I can only find off-road versions.
Thanks,Will

Garen... Thanks.. I will wait a bit. I am saving for a trip to Lincoln next month. Perhaps mid-summer if you get another shipment by then.

Will- I would assume the 2015 with a short header would probably be best, or use the one Motonica offers. It's cheap and seems to work ok.

Bill- OK.

Cool

I am looking for a new on-road header for the old style pipes that use silicone couplers. I have 2 new 9886 RB pipes that I would like to use. PM me if you have one to sell.

Thanks, Will

Cool My almost complete P8C!

Here are pictures of my P8C waiting on radio system, pipe and header. Engine is an old Paris Modifed Picco G1, probably way too much engine, but it was looking for a new home. I'm going to stick a 7mm venturi in the Novarossi carb and see what happens.







Enjoy!

Hello France,

Nice surprise with the price of the DXF Primo chassis...

It drop from 599 to 399 (including the low profile Savx servo).

200 lower because of the changing of distribution...

Au revoir.

Got the kids pan car about 95% ready to go. I still need to get a rec. pack mounted and change out the steering servo arm since the one I have in it right now limits the steering travel. Kit was pretty easy to build and most everything fit together well. My only issue was the non-english distructions. You really have to study the pictures hard!

just curious, what will be different in handling if that front plate would be very stiff or really free moving?

Is it that with high traction you should set it more stiff (almost no side to side action)and with less traction you should set it more softer? Or is it completly something else? It seems there is no info about that.

Garen is probably the best source for setup info with our cars, but I believe you are right.
