Good question. Not a lot of difference between this pipe and latest top brand two-chamber pipes. One thing I think is special though...the price. Street price will be around $60 for a complete system (pipe, manifold, seals, springs, etc.).

It has the heatsinks on the connecting parts of the manifold, conical header, smoother shape. Just look at mine. Hold on lemme get a pic.

That's good enough for me!
The manifold does look different though...

What I meant to say GK, is that this THS pipe is the same as most of the new complete exhaust systems. RB, Novarossi, JP, etc. all have new pipes with these conical headers, heat sinks and overall performance traits. But, this one just has a little less of a sting on your wallet.

Yeah, dawg. As you could see in the earlier pics, the car is ready. Come to think of it, my season already started. First the WinNats, next is Vegas in April and then our local stuff. Looking forward to C-Whits new joint in MD too.

Chris, if you're trolling this thread, I'm coming down there to bust your...and you're taking me out for dinner.

Shout goes out to my new east coast teammate Vince Jackson! Watch out for this kid...he's coming fo ya.

Hey don't forget me too! Well, I'm still learning, but am already managing to put down some fast laps with my engine at only around 80%. Gonna test the car out on floyd one day when it's nice out. Any of you guys going to run at bridgeport Barcar event? I'm still not sure what was the postponed day from the 16th...but the rest are all on sunday...and it's mandatory to attend all 3 pt series. I may got to FBF for the club events. HOpefully the track will be dusted off before then for some practice or I'd have to bring my bro in law's leaf blower.

I'm a BOLD ADVENTURER! JK....Don't think we've met, but I haven't raced at the big official races at Floyd. I'm Bert. Not sure if you've seen an HPI R40 with this body at floyd some time in the past?







For now though, the 8th will just be there...r40 been sold. Not sure if I should bag the Hudy tire truer....thing thing is $300! The integy is pretty good, but with the hudy bit some calculations will have to be done. I like the Ofna one. What one would you guys go with: The hudy for $300, Ofna for $200-$250, or the Integy with carrying case for $190.

Kewl, thanks for the support. I'm ordering the new bulkheads instead of the older ones. I'm sure that'd be helpful. Also, got spare spur gears and pulley set, belts. Not gonna go with the Hudy tire truer....just is TOO expensive. The Integy will do.
