How does a person determine what pipes fits what type of track? Is there a guide somewhere?

Thanks!

Yes, is there a guide somewhere? I have a X12 and run on a track that is either in the big to really big catagory.

Default Tank

Does anybody know how the gas tank is put together? Is it heat welded, glued, chemical fusion, etc...

I have a tank that leaks all the way across the front seam. Is there any way to fix it?

Thanks.

Speaking of pipes, I have an OZ TZ with a RD logic turbo 3 pipe. We usually race on a small track 155 x 75. What pipe would be recommended? I bought a rd logics 505 but haven't used it yet. Someone told me the 505 is like the skyline vr12, can someone tell me if that is true?

Does anyone have recommendations?

Thanks

Use a soldering iron and repair the seam. But you're better off replacing it.

I'll post something in the main Nitro On-Road thread to see if we can get some answers.

I tested the 62505R which is the pipe you are talking about it is a balanced tuned pipe for a 12-15 engine the tuned pipe works perfect on a big flowing tracks with alot of sweepers testing was done @ kissimee raceway the turbo3 is also great on big tracks with a long straightaway it works better on a track that does not have a lot of sweepers like the track that is in Fort Myers as for the skyline comparision to rdlogics there identical it is very hard to to say which is better they feel the same.
I would recommend the 505 for your track since it is smaller than the track i raced @ & you will feel that has a bettter midrange than the turbo3 and the turbo 3 has a better topend on the straight but might be 2 much for that track do the testing & let me know what you think.

Mcsquish are you talking about the toledo track where the GLC is hosted.
If so I ran the Rdlogics turbo2 & then switched to the 505 pipe to gain more midrange speed there lastyear . Hopefully I can make it again this year.

How small of a track? I find the stock gears to be pretty good on my small track (75' x 150').
