I can see where you would say that it is an OFNA but unless OFNA made it for them, you have to assume that this is a HPI/HB produced product. However, as you can see, it was out long before the current crop of cars that we are currently running. It was put out right after OFNA came out with their Ultra GTP 1 but neither caught on back in their day.
OFNA didn't make the car their manufacturer Hong Nor did. The Lightnings were nothing more than Hong Nor made cars with a Hot Bodies label.

How does the Tsais T32/36 compare, or are there others worth considering?

I currently have a JP-4, and from what I have seen of it on the Mach I have in the DM-1 now, I'm not impressed... I switched to the stock Losi RTR pipe from my Muggy last weekend, and it was better. But I think for these GT cars you need the most power in the mid-range.. Low-range with a 28 is no problem, and top-end is not important unless you have a quarter-mile to run on. So I want a big booming mid-range.. I know the JP-2 delivers that. Just wondering if there are others... Thanks..
I run the LRP and did NOT like the JP4 at all, I can look tonight what pipe I run, I think it's a 086 Ofna. Also another guy runs the LRP and borrowed my normal pipe and liked it a little better than the JP3. just mu $.02

I tried all my 1/8 pipes on the LRP and what worked best for me is the THS8015 pipe and header. I have these in stock. The header will clear the bulkhead on the OFNA car. This is a great pipe.

Guys i need help here.

I need some tips about products to improve traction on asphalt. I remember watching pics and videos of a semi-permanent parking lot track in USA with GT Cars and some very black paint/emulsion was droped on asphalt but i cant find the pics again, the idea is to improve a track traction suitable for rubber and foam racing ...

Any tip will help,

thanks,

I've used sugar and water in a spray bottle, you'll have to re-apply it between rounds though. And when we've been without a spray bottle we've used 2 litre bottles of Sprite.

Our track uses generac brand Grape Soda. Grape soda for some reason is really sticky compared to other sodas. Plus it smells really good.

They spray it on with a pesticide pump sprayer you can get at Lowes or Home Depot. Before spraying they blow the area off with a leaf blower. They only spray once before the races, and seems to last through the day.
