Default Tuned Length

With the newest engines revving so high now, just wondering what ppl's opinions are:

to run shorter pipe and headers and let the engines rev?


longer pipe and headers for better bottom end?

hey snoopy......

I try different pipes to see if the engine responds(to alterings its powerband)......

if I can notice a difference,I use the pipe that suits the track I'm running at.....

last year,at the hpi challenge,with a 150 ft back straight,I ran a RB turbo pipe on my HPI SS(with 3 port turbo)..

This year they are going to have a shorter(70 ft straight,and real tight infield) track..I switched to an Associated GT pipe...car runs real strong out of corners....
