Before I bought this truck I had to filter through all other threads to find info on this truck. Here is it's own thread.

What would be a good aftermarket pipe that would fit without modifications to use on this truck when I am in an area that I can get away with a louder pipe.

I am pretty sure buggy pipes will fit. If so then you have to chose if you want more top end, bottom end, or a mid-range pipe.

Is the 2 speed tranny for the MT2 one that they use for other cars or is it a newly designed on for this car? If I put in this 2 speed trans will it accelerate quicker in the lower end of its speed range? What about getting dirt in the gears? Is it worth the $90

you really only will want to use the 2 speed for on road applications.

also, the gearing is different from the cars to the mt2

also note the part #'s are different

IMO, no. I would rather but a few different clutch bells and spur gears and just tune it for your mood. I personally would not want to use a 2 speed in the dirt. Although if I was given one, I would definately use it.
