Thanks for your reply rjl. What is the Rossi 01201 pipe set? I looked on Novarossi's site and they have no such thing.
While looking on Novarossi's site I saw this tuned pipe:
Here is Novarrossi's desription of the pipe: "High speed pipe developed for track use. With this exhaust the RPM range and top speed limit increase giving faster speed in the straights."
This is exactly what I am looking for. Like I stated before, I need a pipe that is designed for top-end in mind. What do you guys think of this tuned pipe for use with the Rossi Pixi-Black engine?
Also, I have a question about the Novarossi manifolds. I am kind of confused on which one in for touring car applications. At Novarossi's site under the 2.1cc manifold section, they list this rear exhaust manifold:
Here is Novarrossi's description of this manifold:
"Suitable for touring and track with rear exhaust engine."
Under the 2.5cc manifold section, they list this rear exhaust manifold:
Here is Novarossi's description of this manifold: "Suitable for on road 1/10 cars, standard rubber fixing."
I am kind of confused which one to use with the 51603 pipe. The pipe and manifold will be going in a Reflex NT. I think the art. 40602 manifold is the one I need since it was under the 2.1cc category and it states "touring" in the description. Is this the manifold to use with the 51603 pipe? I just want to make sure first. They look so much a like.
Also, this may sound foolish, but is there any performance advantages and differences between a "polished" pipe and manifold (like manifolds pictured above) or a "black" pipe (like 51603 pipe pictured above) and manifold? Is it just for looks, or is there any performance gains or losses?
