What is the common pipe that everyone is using on the RRR. And has anyone ever heard of Twister foam tires. They are selling them @ $9.99 on the Kinetix website. Just wanted to check before purchasing some.

Most of the guys from my track runs the Skyline pipe and it seems to be fast. I have been running various flavors of the Max pipe and they all seem pretty good.

I would also like to know what the good pipes are.

What Skyline pipe are you talking about? Is it the leagal or the outlaw one?

The legal one (V12 methinks). I have not tried it but a very similar pipe on my FW05 works great.

The Max is good too but more expensive and not as sturdy.

Is anyone out there running the front diff with overdrive (23T)? I wanted to get some feedback on this. Also if anyone has any opinions on this it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

John

Im running the skyline vr12 on my RRR, its a good pipe. Its as good as the RB I was running previously, and a bit sturdier. Twister tires work well. I believe the foam is from GRP, so traction is good but wear isnt quite as good as Monotuning. Also the rims are really strong.

I`m running the RB pipe (V- concept 401) and find it to give pretty good power right across the board with my RB v12.

Im running the Mugen 2501 EFRA and ive found it to be the best pipe ive ever used.

Ive used Nova, Jp, Max, RD, mega and none come close to the Mugen

Default set up for rubber tires

hey doki_doki....
I'm from Brazil , so i we usually use sorex 36 tires, soften suspension, use front diff, and the greater racers blocked front diff (spool) , these are the basic.
But some guys change front sway bars, rear axle, all pulleys ( i was talking with a guy here and he told me that rubber tires version comes with litlle pulleys than foam version).
But i tested those ways and didnt found different results.
Tell me one thing, what engines do u guys use in the us?
i'm using here novarossi rex rer 12s3 with efra 2601 pipe.
Thanks.
Marcelo.
