the weather has to be better than here. all its done on the weekends when we are supposed to race is rain. we keep having to race the off weekends from the schedule. really messes things up. the electric club is supposed to setup on saturday and they keep getting rained out. nice during the week but rainy on the weekend. kinda nice for me since i just got one of the kyosho motorcycles and i can practice after work. we are running the gas 1/5 bikes and i am going to kick some serious butt with a electric bike thats smaller.

Default difference

the skyline pipe, is longer than the rdlogics an the pipe itself is narrower then the rdlogics ,which i think is closer to the kyosho then the rdlogics.

so if the rd pipe is kinda short and fat it should produce good bottom end and mid, if the skyline is long and narrow it should provide mid to high? is that right? cause i need some more mid to high. dont get me wrond i like the rd pipe but if something is better suited to what i need ill go that way.

I have run both and found the car running better w/ the Skyline. Running pretty much everything else the same, I finally got into the 19's on a track I usually get 20-21sec/lap. Found the motor running alot cooler too. It is a larger track though, I'll be running at a smaller track at the end of the month so we'll see how much better it is there.

Currious if anyone knows of a good online shop in the US that sells aftermarket or stock parts for the 05R or RR. Sucks that Tower abandoned all Kyosho car parts from their stock.
