Has anyone tried the AE rpm pipe yet?
it seems to be just like the novarossi pipe but louder. has a lot of mid and high range when you tune it. the stock stinger ID is 4.90mm with a 15/64 drill bit it is now 5.91mm wow what a cheep power gain

Just wondering if it makes a difference to turn the head 90 degrees in the NTC3 so that the open part of the head will allow air to flow through? Anyone got an idea on this?

Your pipe is also no longer roar legal. Good trick if your not running a roar event though.

i under stand that but we clube race so we can run outlaw motors and pipes. and all that in a spec tire class it is fun now my tr12 with a lot of work, it is a bit faster than a rtu on the infield and i think he gets me by 6 or seven inches at the end of the straight

Default Ratio advice needed...

Hi:

For several time I've been reading the thread, but now I have a question to do. I own a NTC3 with a Rex 12 RN motor (the ones with Turbo crank and 1/4 UNF plug). On the next weeks I'll attend a race in a large track with a main straight of >200Ft long, the rest of the track is very speedy (big turns and only 2 consecutive hairpins).

My question is: What kind of ratio should I pick with this engine for this track, the stock gearing proved to be short, should I go for a 23/27-54/50 or other ratio, please suggest one (I'm not novice on R/C but yes on those greasy and messy things ).

The track conditions can be something like this: 35-40 air temp, >60C track temp, 700m upper the sea level and the pipe is the two chamber one, I loved the way sounds the stock pipe, but it's illegal under EFRA rules The fuel is good quality with 16% nitro (Crash brand).

Dennis or whatever: with the stock head config, the plug don't get any kind of air flow thru the fins of the head, should I rotate 90 to get some air flow to the plug?
