lol. Guessing from the prices he's charging prob. overseas. Don't matter to me where he gets them he's cheaper than even speedtech. He told me he had like 60 sets of Zac tires at one point. I wanna try that Zac head for the OS TR but I'm hoping he can drop the price a little more on that part.

I'm currently running the RD Logics RD61210, on a Collari 3 port. Has penty of power and so far I think it's better I than the Paris Ring pipe I had on it...

I also have a REX pipe, I dont remember the part number. I'll be running that on my RBX12. So can't really comment on it's performance yet.

I think it is a 52605, like I said long day. But the inline pipe is the way to go on the V1R(R) I find. Well here is my theory.

The front of most pipes (all except my very short Eagle racing pipe) sit right next to the front 27/25 tooth pulley. If you take a decent side hit the pipe gets forced inwards and downwards if you have a rear exhaust engine. The front of the pipe hits the pulley (evidence by most of my old pipes having a pulley shaped indent) but the rear can continue inwards. This seems to force the pipe out of the coupler if you get unlucky. I got unlucky 3/4 races one night!!

I did not have any problems with my RB header and RB X12 pipe however, the pipe did not come out of the coupler. But it did get messed up pretty bad on the inside where it hit my chassis

AMG I could scan a picture of the latest pipe I got smashed that would help verify that theory (seiki efra). The dent is where you described and shaped how you described. I took a ram by a serpent impulse (as I was lapping his butt last week) and my pipe got filleted.

I did notice from experimenting with these pipes that the lip on the X12 is larger in diameter than other pipes and makes a tighter seal w/ even the larger couplers.

but the x12 pipes are not known for their toughness....take a slight knock on the stinger and its goes dented.
the fridge treatment needs to be carried out to bring it back close to the normal position.

I normally cut down the stinger length...this increases the strength in this area signifcantly and makes the pipe LOUDER!!!!!

This is a must!!! The V1R has the side belt and I have not had a pipe yet which has not protruded wider than the wheels. One tap and it folds back
