That's the thing I don't like...having to basically have all 3 manifolds for that pipe (to produce different power ranges). It adds up in the cost. I'd prefer to get a pipe and stick with it without changing something for each track or condition. That's me though, I like simplicity in design that just works.

I don't see people complaining about having limited power for this or that when they run a Skyline Pipe which only has one header length/type. However, it is my opinion that Novarossi parts are overpriced a bit so I AM biast against them generally.

I can agree with that Novaroossi is over price I've never even bought novarossi products RC racing is expensive hobby as a whole.

Well, the Nova 2630 pipe with the 6 fins pipe is well balanced already for most track size. I only opted to get the 7 fins since the local tracks the I used to race before was considered a small sized tracks. You are basically safe with just using the 6 fins manifold unless you race at a much larger track...

Well, I got a very good deal for my 2630 pipe with the 3 manifolds... Can't say the price though since it's just a special price for the special hobbyist

One pic shows a KO Helios so I would assume it's the Helios FM receiver.
