I found this on youtube
but couldn't find out who makes it and where to buy one.
Also do silencer's really work? Does it reduce the sound or does it change the pitch?
I've been in electric but would like to get into nitro so I apologize in advance if some of these questions are fairly elementary.
By changing the routing of the exhaust, you will also change the performance of the pipe/muffler. The combintion of the pipe/muffler are designed to improve the performance of your engine, and by changing this, you will dramatically alter your engines performance. Just by changing the header from say a 3 ring, to a 4 ring header changes the power of the engine. The pipes themselves also play a huge part in the way your engine runs. The manufactures have done a lot of research in determining the right lenght, diameter of both the pipe and header. The engine will run of course, but the performance will suffer greatly if you alter the length of the exhaust system.
