I would have to say the polished pipe is more bottom end grunt with the black pipe being smoother and more top end for onroad. I have both, but haven't run it yet. Only the stock plastic pipe was used so far. Haven't had the time to run the Spada with those pipes.
I have all three pipes and the Kyosho pipe is definantely the best all around pipe. The stock pipe may have a little more bottom, but mid and top are way better with the kyosho (baseball) pipe. BTW I purchased the kyosho pipe from RDVTG as well and received it super fast through EMS...I would recommend.

1FastVW,
how wld you rate the polished sirio pipe with the other 2?
currently i have the sirio and the stock polished pipe..

btw, i can't seem to get the right angle for the sirio pipe.
when the exhaust stinger is at horizontal level, the fuel pressure nipple is at the bottom..

any suggestions?
pics wld be great!

I thought the polished pipe had a little less bottom than the stock. IMO the black kyosho pipe is the best all around available pipe for the spada. Also there is no good way to mount the polished pipe as it was designed for the mini-inferno buggy...so the nipple will face down....

Is everyone running the stock motor?
With 20% or 30% nitro
Also has anyone did any mods on the front to increase the ride height?
I will be working on this shortly to get 3mm ride height all around

I run 30% in my .09....1 year later and still on the original plug. Also, you should be able to get 3mm ride hide without doing any mods....

Good luck. Unless someone imports Spada parts in the US, you'll have to order them overseas. Thats what I did.

PM me if you want a site that sell spares and options for your Spada. They carry everything and also tuner parts also, like Charge RC and Eagle Racing.

The electric Spada looks cool. Don't hit anything... the chassis will 'taco' quite easily...
