This INS box is good for both Sedan and 1/8 scale on road cars, there are 2 versions: 1 being clear and 1 is black, these are light and compact!

Or this http://kamikazercracing.com/proddeta...prod=NOVA30003 which is good for 1/8 scale only.

They do rob a very small amount of power. It's about the same as going from a 9mm to an 8.5mm venturi.

They actually do a little bit, different boxes does give different runtimes....

But it is not the airflow but the resonance of the sound which is damped, the shape and the 2-chamber construction works as an exhaust.
