hmm I'll PM you in a re: THS pipe

Here is a photo of what I done, I cut the pipe with hacksaw near weld and near pressure connector then "welded" the pipe back together.

Also cut a little from header to get pipe to sit back in same place.
this is ugly !! horrible !! the worst pipe i have ever seen !!

I want to ditch my LD3 now !

centax seems to work good.
the new centax is a copy of mugen clutch according to the boss of HN.

Default Yo Adrienne!!! I did ittt!!!

Ummm, yeah...ok..I just sent payment out for a Champ "Tangerine Dream"
Im sure, once I get it and start building, Ill have lotsa Qs...so be forewarned
One quick one I have...about the Centax...
Choosing to upgrade to the Mugen or even Kong Nor's version,
I see that the main reason is for more gearing choices...is durability over the "stock" clutch an issue as well?..I am thinkin of selling the "stock" system before I even build it...is this worth while???
