I have run the 086 Dynamite pipe and header on mine and currently using the Kyosho IGW007 rear exhaust pipe and header for smaller track racing.

The 086 is faster and the engine runs cooler but the rear exhuast factor of the 007 is pretty cool. And no gunk on the side of the body or the rear wheel is priceless!!

Nice race video!! A couple of the cars looked really hooked up for parking lot racing. Thats what we do a lot of here.

The White Porsche looked great, and the driver was nice clean looking for good places to pass rather than run through the other cars on the track. There were other good racers in the video also and there where some that didnt quite pay attention to whats in front of them.

Are those all electric cars? I didnt see any smoke.
What is the make/model of the Porsche? What set up/tires?

Yes that was my car Steve Nguyen AKA "SNR"

It was all electric car I ran Ofna Ultra GTP2e with all my carbon fiber parts on it, for tires I ran PMT 10 and 20. Second place was Losi Oval car converted to GTP also running PMT 10 and 20.

Jeff, i usually run this air filter "elbow" on my GT's and on my offroad cars, it gives you full air flow over the engine cooling head as it puts the airfilter just over the battery/receiver box, is from OFNA :



I think that in case of INS BOX, this can be used too ...

cya !
