Wow! That sucks, I was considering using that pipe myself. Guess I will have to give it some thought now.

i never use 3 racing. I still remembered friend of mine using the front universal joint on the Kyosho 05, he broke 3 pcs in a day even with a very slight hit on the track. It can only last for "3" racing.
For the pipe, i am using the Mugen instead.

I once bought a 3 racing chassis for my retired NTC3. The chassis was built like a tank; but the machined holes where so far out I had to add about 15 shims to get rid of the slop on the front and rear a-arms. You are right they are only good for about 3 races or less.

no i tried that with the 1st pipe and when it heats up and the oil gets to it it just falls off again in the winter time ill try to weld them back on.
for now i use the stock ninja pipe
as for 3racing that was the last part on my car,never again
cvd's brake in 1 run
chassis bends easy and holes out
servo saver brakes
oh wait i still us the batt tray,its carbon fiber so i think its ok.

I have 3 racing chassis on my MTX4 , it last more than "3" racing. but other parts I prefer plastic over alu. my skyline engine mount work find for me, never shift position or break, I have the same gear set for whole years, it is crewed but never stripe.

I was joking. .... Of course I wouldn't buy 3racing anymore if main chassis only last 3 racing.

( I have 3racing main chassis for MTX3 and MRX4. So far so good u know ).

if you are running a ninja the stinger will fly off as you come to the end of the straight do to the high speed and air flow.
dont even let another car tap you on the pipe side
and i do mean tap
good luck.
