Just make sure you do not have an exhaust leak at the joint where the pipe meets the header. Your may have to massage into place but it will fit. If your body was already cut for a different style pipe you will have to modify your exhast hole to fit the new pipe.
Thank you very much for the reply, I really appreciate it.

Thank you for clarifying that I can still use the pipe I originally purchased. I just hadnít seen too many pipes angled over like you mentioned was possible to do with this manifold / exhaust set up.

Thanks again for your help......

Good advice from Elliot. That pipe and header combo should work well. You really need to reroute your plug to the other side of the car.. my .02. Good Luck finishing it all up.

I appreciate the .02 cents Carnage. What plug are you speaking of?

I think he refers to the battery plug. The position it is in now puts it at risk of being eaten by the belt. Normally the plug is positioned close to the receiver. That makes it easier to connect and disconnect with the body on. Now I would not dare with the hot pipe close to the plugÖ

But in any case route the wire to come up between the tank and the radioplate. That will keep it away from the belt and pipe more than it is now.

with the straight header I do advise you to stick some aluminum tape onto the inside of the body. Otherwise it will melt from being pressed into the header by the airflow during driving.

Ok so I ďmassagedĒ the One brand header and pipe into the best place possible without getting any type of exhaust leak. I started the engine up today and felt around the header where it mounts to the engine and couldnít feel anything slipping by the rubber joint.
Esthetically it just doesnít please me all crooked like it is. Iím actually looking for different header and pipe combos to replace the one I have. The pipe and header I currently have are very study with the factory pipe mount.
So I may replace this pipe/header in time if I can find the right set up.
I have moved the wiring around in order to get that better situated in the area of the belt, it is just not shown in this picture

Anything to look out for in particular? Is it an error in the manual, or just a build step that is widely misunderstood? Iím FINALLY looking to build mine in the coming weeks (Ugh - long story),so any tips or advice is appreciated.

You got this, you will be fine, just pay attention to what your doing. The routing of the servo and battery wiring was an area I struggled with.

I have only been racing since the start of the year and a few of the experienced guys at my local track directed me to use the regular 750 natrix rear suspension. I have found it really beneficial as being a somewhat beginner I was always breaking the rear lower arms and other rear suspensions parts. I found the older arms more rigid and stable and havenít had any broken parts yet.

Does anyone know if Serpent will come with an 235mm model or kit for the 750?
