The dynamite pipe is too long. I have tried or made every type of pipe possible for the NTC3. Dennis came up with a center exhaust deal that I used for a good while till the RD pipe came along.
The RD pipes are by far the best out there right now. The turbo version works very well with my modded engines!

Default ok ,

so its getting a little colder here in p a, ok alot colder, last race was 80 degrees, now its in th ehigh 50's to low 60's and was wondering since this is my first season racing , and my car was setup in the warmer weatehr ,, do i need to soften the suspension for the colder temps,, or do i just use softer foam ,
i assume traction will be a problem in the colder months ,, and aslo why do the clubs in the colder climates stop racing in the winter outside,, id love to race outside all year ,

The center exhaust deal is something Dennis came up with when he was playing with the car. He made a pipe turn down the center of the car and exit out the rear of the car. He used a Rex pipe modded to rear exhaust outlet. I also used this pipe and a MIP Stinger pipe and a Paris ribbed pipe.

For some reason I and a few others had tuning and heating problems with high output engines, these exhaust systems and fuel tank modds cured most of my problems. Now with the RD pipes and the G-1 or G-2 chassis all problem are gone. This tells me there was a problem with the stock pipe and stock chassis.( chassis too flexy, too much vibration, and too much restriction on the pipe. I can't answer why some people have troubles while others do not. It seems the more HP you make the more troubles you had.
