only downside to the mega 2686 inline that I used was getting a good seal on the rear exhaust outlet because the manifold is larger in diameter than a small block pipe. Doubling up on the gasket though did the trick on the collari.

I haven't tried any of the other 15 pipes. I guess the other downside is that it isn't ROAR legal.

Thanks Patella for the info...

btw, anyone ever try a Protoform Vauxhall Vectra body? If so, how is it? How close is it to the Stratus? I'm basically looking for a body that performs the closest to a Stratus that isnt a Stratus. I've heard the two closest are the Vectra and the Accord. So I'm trying to pick between the two.

Well here is something to think about. I have a Mugen 19T pinion and a Kyosho 15T pinion on a Mugen clutchbell mating to the standard Kyosho 2 speed. The Kyosho gear has far more wear on it as they are made from softer material.

I think you are just having some bad luck.

I agree, I have never been able to feel significant difference between these bodies.

Patella,

I got the Zac Pipe in the mail today, and other than a few minor scratches, it looks brand new!

Thanks for getting it out to me so fast.

U can find reviews on the bodyshell here http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=3086. There are few guys at my track running it with great success...
Judge the size of your track and get a shell that is practical rather than just the 'Look' of the car...Hope this helps....
