Hey whats up MArcos, going to be racing hopefully in fall becuase my limit on my birthday is 600 dollars. I am going to buy the kit, engine, and pipe in two weeks. Then I will work for money and hopefully get my radio equipment.

Heres the outlook.

Engine-200
Pipe-50

635 dollars total

Oh, forgot to mention earlier ... I use the Kyosho manifold with my shark pipe ... lots of space between the manifold and the pulley.

First mount the alu parts between the bearing blocks, then tighten the screws that hold the alu parts to the carbon upper bumper plate.
That's a good idea Kevin. I'll copy that before you patent it !

Why? Wouldn't that cause engine tuning problems?

As for the pipe, you may want to try a Novarossi / Novamega manifold that comes with their inline pipe and pair it up with yout RDLogic pipe. Makes the overall pipe shorter. Very good on long high speed tracks.

He is from Bali, Indonesia. Not from Pakistan or India. His nick when translated means "A Crazy Balinese Person".
