The K Factory pipe is a very good pipe. It performs well on small tracks since it seems to give good low and middle powerbands. It becomes weak on long tracks where you need your engine to produce more rpms. The pipe is well made and doesn't dent easy. Nicely polished and like all K Factory parts, quality is tops!

yeah, also heard that it loss power in high rev on 2nd speed, so might not be ideal if ur track has a long stretch of straight road.

I have to agree with uniquexme. I used the missile pipe with a Murnan X12 at the recent European GP and it just drags at the top end. Its not even that impressive in the low end. I changed the pipe over to a Mid-Mugen and everything changed.

To have an idea of the track, go to 3hobby.et and download the "Scenes" video of the GP.

Try a Skyline VR12 Plus and you will find a very smooth and excellent powerband throughout. This pipe was the choice for high performance engines fo a lot of teams at the recent Nationals here in the states.

I have had excellent sucess with the pipe.

Default missle pipe 5mm

I tried this pipe and the top is very weak took forever for the rpm's to peak. I run on a medium track. Low end is average. I would think K-factory would have done a better job on this pipe. Not very impressed. Only positive point seems to very rugged. Purchased another pipe switched to the novarossi 2630 Great pipe!

How would you compare this to the vantage C/F pipe?

Thanks!

Thanks Sam but I just saw that it does not have an EFRA number so I can't use it.
