Would there be any pipes out there that u would recommend to me besides the nova pipe i was thinking about and THX for the lightening speed responses. Also i have a friend that was thinking of doing a v1s conversion to a r would that be more than a brand new r at the end?

Talking about pipes... What do you guys recommend for an torquey inline type pipe?

Most inline pipes I know are high revving ones. Thanks.

Dont worry about the pipe too much. Run the car and see how it feels. Pipe tuning makes minor difference when you compare to proper needle and clutch settings. It should be a good pipe.

Generally you cannot convert the S to a R without substantial amounts of parts. It will almost certainly be cheaper to just get an R.

If you run rubber tires you are better off without it. If you run foam tires the rear of your car rolls less and has more grip in high speed corners while maintaining low speed grip. Basically it makes the car easier to drive fast.

I ocassionally run at a track which is effectively a concrete walking path around 5 feet wide which they race on. Crazy? Yes. Long story short foams dont work there as the concrete dust makes it slippery.

But if you get a spare set of kyosho rear arms you can convert back and forth in around 2 minutes.

Even lowest shims is around the top hole of the kyosho hub. I find the best is top inner and bottom outer for concrete walking path tracks This minimises the camber change. Mayby I am too fussy

Would this mod behave similarily to having the gold rear sway bar? I mean... I understand that they reduce roll by different means...but I was just wondering...if you guys have tried it ( the gold rear sways )??

Lowering the rear camber links changes roll centre, what track conditions call for altering roll centre?
