Default Whats the difference between a 2 and 3 chamber pipe for 1/8 buggy?

I was wondering if someone can tell me the difference between a 2 and 3 chamber buggy pipe.

Thanks

Chris

Quote from the EFRA's site:

"All the currently old 2-chamber mufflers that are valid for 2005 in Off-Road will be removed from the list and the handbook 2006.

A proposal will be made by the EFRA executive end of this year for the AGM. So from 2006, if the AGM accept the proposal, there will only be 3-chamber mufflers on the official homologation list."

They definately exist, but I've searched a bit and haven't found any sites that mention 3 chamber in any pipe specifically. I would assume a 3 chamber pipe would probaby give better fuel economy with the trade off of less power, due to the increased back pressure. A 3 chamber would be quieter as well. I wouldnt worry about it though, just get a normal pipe that suits you needs, wether it be low end, mid, or high end power. Novarossi pipes are generally regarded as being some of the best you can get. If you want the most durable pipe out there the Jammin pipes are really tough and hard coated.

"This new 3-chamber "In-Line" tuned pipe has been created to decrease the noise level, maintaining the powerlevel and low fuel-consumption of the RB Concept on and off-road engines. This tuned pipe set is polished to allow faster gasflow and makes it easier to clean. The "In-Line" system is a perfect and very reliable manifold/tuned-pipe combination."

So what is it, just a 2 chamber pipe with a more restrictive silencer inside?

From their description, that's what it seems. Sounds a bit farfetched to me if that is the only reason for the 3-Chambered pipe.
