you got that right uniquexme .... the Skyline VR12+ is the pipe to get. durability is superb and performance is very strong (very hard combo to get)... other pipes out there are great in performance but very soft and vice versa.

Currently using Kyosho SC Tuned in line pipe #39058 which all members here claimed to be very good, coz they have all tested so many pipes, and have concluded that this is the best, well, since for me, its my 1st nitro, and that i have damaged a pipe, i need a new one, coz my frenz uses K-Factory missle but claimed that it loss power in high rev. so other than Skyline VR12+?? btw, how much is this VR12+

IMO I have found that motos that have there own proprietary pipe combination usually works best example... mega zx 12 + mega 2602 pipe, sirio evo3 + 2611
os tz + os 1040 pipe ...just Imo

wow, seems like they are a few pipes that are listed in top 10 rankings. more more, intro more. maybe we shd make a poll on pipes, so that we all dont have to waste money trying out new pipes. wat u guys think? can anyone help to do this?

It will work well with either one. Pipes aren't really specifically designed for 3 or 5 port engines. Only for .12 or .15 engines.
