Default exhaust manifold gasket, which brand?

Ok. The last Losi exhaust manifold gaskets I bought seemed to not last too long. Anybody got a good recommendation for a good brand that lasts longer?

I ordered a HPI set, and it wont fit. It slides around the engine fine, but my pipe wont slide on. I have tried fuel and spit (lol, I know, but it usually works) but it wont go on. Its like the gasket is too fat. The losi ones fit good, but they crack and split easy

OS and Nova ones are the best I have used.

Default Yep

You can buy the orange RB ones in a pack of 5-6 I don't remember exactly, but it's like 12 bucks, but they work really well, the Nova ones are good too, you just have to order extras. Also. I've found the Novarossi Headers fit on the engine a bit better than say Dynamite headers. I replaced the gasket less often since I started using the Nova headers.....

The HPI purple gaskets are tough and last, but you must shave the outside of them down. A dremel makes it easy work.
If you don't want to mess with it these are great, but more $.
