tuned pipe keeps slipping off..

i have a Hyper 7 PBS and my tuned pipe keeps slipping off.. wish i had a digital camera to take a shot of it to post here..

(i'm pretty new to the whole r/c thing, so please excuse my description if it's how all pipes work..)

the very tip of the pipe slides down on a metal rod.. i believe it's called a pipe rod. (which looks sorta like a alan wrench), and then a silicone rubber tube connects the pipe to the manifold? the pipe that comes from the exhaust port on the engine..

if i'm putting the buggy around on a flat surface, no problem.. but if i take it on a more rigorous course and start jumping it, the pipe starts working it's way up the pipe rod and when that happens, the other end of the pipe starts coming loose from the silicone rubber tube, and the buggy gets about 10 times louder.. once that happens, i know the pipe came out of the silicone tube and i have to cut it off, wait for it to cool down and then reassemble it..

so my question is: is there a way to keep the pipe at the bottom of the pipe rod? or another way to keep the whole exhaust system together so i dont have to keep reassembling it?

any help is much appreciated! thanks

I am guessing the pipe rod is the support bar at the front of the pipe that keeps the pipe in place. There should be a set screw holding the pipe firm onto that piece, put some threadlock on that screw so it wont back out and come loose. Then run some thick zip ties on the manifold coupler.
