If you have a bit of time RB will be releasing a new pipe/header. It is #2013. Watch the RB main site for info on the release date.

Ace Hobbies carries a ton of RB items:
acehardwarehobbies.com

If you are running a large flowing track a #9886 (great 2 chamber pipe) with a "6 fin manifold" is a good choice. If you want more punch run a 7 fin. More top end 5 fin.

I have been running 9886 pipes for years now and it works great at my track. My track has as a smooth and flowing layout like Rich described. We don't have many areas where the car comes to a complete stop (none, really) - the car will will definitely drop down into first gear in most of the corners on the track, but the car never slows down enough so that the clutch disengages.

That said, I'm going to try one of the 2013 Pipes after my current set of 9886 pipes get all banged up.

Please keep in mind, performance never comes cheap! RB,MAX, Novarossi Are the best pipes out there.

Rd logic is nothing more than a racer's budget pipe. IMOP
