Default Stock Nitro rustler 2.5 tuned pipe keeps coming off

The blue tuned pipe that comes stock on nitro rustler keeps coming off after just a few rolls. I zip tie, and rezip tie as tight as I can get it but get same results. Any advice or alternative solutions to keep this from happening? thanks

Flare the ends of the header and then zip-tie it together. This gives the Zip-tie something to grab on to.
How to flare-
Stick a screwdriver (or something else round) into the header (where the zip-tie would go) and roll the edges of the header out.
