I saw it overseas. It was also made by Racing Jack. Saw it at Prefect Garage in HK.

Anybody tried the ZAC Project (Kawahara) pipes? I need a new pipe for my Richey RTU and I'm looking for opinions. I also thought about the X12 inline system from RB. Anybody got opinions?

The ZAC pipe is more of a low end torque pipe......the material is somewhat soft!! Also the pipe is fairly long.......you have run a very short manifold to get everything to fit between the wheels! It is quite good thought!

I did find a very good combination this weekend for my RS.....it is a NR 51224 pipe coupled onto a .12 inline manifold (as opposed to the .15 manifold that it comes with).

This combination did a good job of filling out some of the missing initial low end torque of the RS whilst still maintaining good top end!

I have 2...where did you think I got the .12 inline manifold from!!

This is a very strange pipe...no particular low end or high end rpm characteristics...... it is a very linear pipe........actually it is very good, if coupled to the right engine!!!!!!!!

52605? I haven't seen that one. How about the NR 51604 or the NovaMega 2185 or 2186?

I just love huge stingers.......................... When they write turbo on the pipe it just has gotta be fast.

AMG, using that logis you could add the word turbo with a vibrating pencil or metal die set and make a fortune

There is an old joke here in the states that said "if you paint flames on the side of the car it will go 10 mph faster" People tried this

Default Foams

I made the main yesterday only to have rain stop the show. Car was tight most of the day. Prospec with gear diff (10,000) and negitave diff in the rear. Running 42 shore all around. Front plowed bad Track was very tight and dusty. Switched to purple front (40 shore??) and tire tack. This helped some what. Purple springs helped more. Looking for a recomendations on some foams. All we have local is Treadz, 42's No 40's Thought about trying 37 & 35 front...... would this work?

Also what is the differance between the front and rear foams?? Both are 26mm

TIA
