Default Can someone recommend a fast pipe for my TC3?

Hey guys I'm an offroad vet who just got into street racing. I have a stock Team Associated TC3 I'm gonna run the stock motor for a while and I want an exhaust to provide huge acceleration, I'm more interested in low and mid end power and I'm willing to drop $150, like I said I'm new to onroad racing and I'm not sure what to get, please give me some brands, ideas, and if possible personal experience with pipes. Thanks!

Lethal, you are better off putting some of that money towards a faster motor, and staying with a cheaper exhaust. I ran on OS and and RB on my 2 tc3's, and ran the stock TC3 (metal) pipe with great results....

As fastharry mentioned, put the $150 on to and RB T9 JR if you want. The pipe on the NTC3 or even the Ofna LD3 dont have much options.

I found on ebay a few engines brand new gonig for the amount of money you are willing to spend.

The pipe on the NTC3 is definitely TOO long.. it provides way to much low end punch and inconsistent tuning.. replace it with an RD Logics 1 piece pipe for the NTC3 and you should notice a big difference in power end engine stability.
