Nice but i think your pipe should be lower the fuel and oil will build up in the middle

I race with this guy and his car works well with that setup. The Skyline pipe seems to give good bottom end for most people. Running a Palmaris BRB set I think I like the HEC pipe I got from Kitracer. It seems to free up the engine.

I run Twister tires from Kinetix also. They're great tires, especially the wheel. It's really sturdy. I went through a crazy accident on the straight last weekend and the tire was barely wobbling even though the pipe on that side was destroyed.

your choice of pipe also depends on what engine you are planning to use and the size of your tracks... my pipe the the rbv12 inline concept pipe since i use a rb v12 5 ports tuned by rody engine. it's a screamer and has a very nice power band...

the v-one rrr wce kit can be easily adjusted to work with rubber tires. i removed the front oneway kit and changed to a regular diff. filled the front diffs with 100,000 wt and 30,000 for the rear. shock oil is 50wt on all fours. springs all black. these is my current set-up but i'm not yet that happy with it although teh car hadles great. still need to do more fine tuning to get the best handling. i know the kit can do better as my previous experience with my v-one r. also removed the front sway bar and rear stabilizer. i'm running 40R sorex rubber tires....

Joe...I disagree with that. Twister is a great tire. I've not had any problems with consistency. You should talk to Omar if you had any problems. I'm sure he would work it out with you.

The rims are by far the strongest I've ever used. The rubber is great. Provides good and consistent traction.

BTW...you missed a good weekend at the last race. Traction was almost at Winternats level and alot of guys were on the verge of traction rolling.
