Default HPI nitro RS4 DRIFT

Anyone have a stage D equipped RS4? or the new RTR version? Do they have the parts individually? I have the Stage D version, but I am interested in how the rear pipe works.

The rear pipe is only to create smoke at the rear as it comes from the tires, I do not think it can perform better than a good side pipe.

This is just a basher car. So I don't think this new pipe will make a difference. But I like how they made it go from the rear. Am I the only person who nitro drifts?

The performance of a 2-stroke engine is very depending on the exhaust, resonation is one of the important things the exhaust must do and thats why tuned pipes have nice shaped manifolds and a long straight pipe.

This rear exhaust design is only to lower the sound, the engine will not perform to its maximum.

Doesn't matter - performance is not so important when drifting.
