Default Pipe Mount!

Move the pipe mount underneath the top deck. This will allow you to bring the front of the pipe down to be level with the rear of the pipe and the tank.

Default Skyline Mount!!

The skyline mount is made for the standard kit and not the new top deck in the WC kit. The mount hole for the skyline mount is further back on the top deck behind the top deck mount hole. Unless you modify the top deck, the skyline mount can't be used on the WC kit Top deck!

Can you post a picture where I can see how your exhaust is fitted?

If I do what you did and try to put my exhaust on the same level with the tank then there will be a constant pressure in the manifold. I mean that if I dont install the mount of the exhaust, then it will "stand" just as you see it in my pic...

There are a number of ways to mount the pipe......
I`ve used the wire pipe mount off a NTC3. It simply goes through the vacant upper deck hole and is secured using a 3mm bolt, 2 3mm washers and a 3mm nylon nut.......havent had any probs at all with it.
I`ve seen another setup, where a guy made up a spring "loaded" type pipe mount, this actually allowed the pipe about 1 - 2" of inwards movement in the event of a side-on hit....he claims this helped reduce damage to his pipes from side-on hits.
Cheers

i mounted my pipe exactly as per the instruction from the kit (from below of the upper deck), same as bighurt98. initially was afraid that if the car suffers a hit from the side, will push the wire mount to the pulley, but so far no problem at all

That must be a very polite track you have there.

I use the Team Magic mount and I put it on top. I also tried the Kawahara aluminum front pully shaft holder with a built-in mount but the wire was too close to the pully for comfort.

Default Car body length

What car body length suits the RRR?

I find those 200mm body length a little tight....the wheel arcs dun really match...as in the rear wheels will be off by around 5mm.
