it really just depends on pesonal preferance i like the one piece because it does not come apart it is a little more expensive than the two piece and there is not much difference in performance the only advantage with the two piece is you can tune the pipe by adjusting the overall length of the pipe

The X12 one piece pipe is a really good one. you will find them anywhere from $79 to $99.00.

This pipe is the softest pipe I have ever owned and gets damaged very easily! Take good care of it!

Yes I agree with you on that. I prefer Novarossi ones as they are much more sturdy. I especially like this inline pipe.

Yeh, I agree with AMG. I had a polished X12, didn't last very long, extremely soft.

I got the new Novarossi inline pipe, haven't used it yet, but this also looks fairy soft as a few people at our track seem to have a few dents on the same pipe.

i like the novamega inline pipe. very strong. it's so strong infact that i hit a board racing a few nights ago and instead of the stinger bending the pipe creased inwards at the pipe header connection area. frozen back to shape in 1 hour. and it only cost $120 oz with all needed to install.

Hi venomworldorder,

Freezing water expands and will push somewhat the dent(s) out.

Need to cap the stinger and pressure fitting off, fill with water from the header end, stand straight up and freeze in freezer.

Default freezing of pipe

Hi Sydewynder

Do you cap the header end when u put it into the freezer?

BTW, what do you use to cap the stinger and pressure tip?

Thanks.

i find a screw which fits into the stinger relativley well, then slip fuel tubing over the screw. screw it into the stinger. block of the presure nipple with a few cm's of tubing zip tied shut at nipple and the fuel tubing.

then with pen, battery, wrench, or whatever, i rap either of these things with surgical gloves and shove it into header end.

RAW40 you're welcome

Vifer Venom pretty much covered it. You can also use vacuum caps that cap off fittings at an automotive store or where I am a HomeDepot (A DIY kind of store).
