Default Info about the OS.TZ18..What pipe?

Hey all.
I have a friend that wants me to install a OS. TZ18 in his HPI super nitro. I am not familiar with the TZ 18 so I don't know what type of pipe he should run. He wants to drag race with it.

My question(s):
What is the proper pipe for the tz18?
Is the OS. TZ18 a speed motor?(on road based)
All input is welcome. Thanks!

OS 18 TZ? Its a beast , mating it to a pipe is hard since there isnt many pipes designed for a .18. But one thing is for sure be sure to get an outlaw pipe if your bashing or using .18 motors. There might be some specific pipes for the .18.

But with the power , whats to worry , just run what you got or find something cheap. The 18 tz will more than make up for everything else.

Just try to keep the temps under 220. I had one and at 180F it was making ballistic power in my on-road , to where it was too much.

It's cool to hear somebody not letting go of their Super, I still have mine and I love it mainly because of the size. Bigger is better!
