thanks in advance and for yr time.
6mm, 7.2mm takes away too much bottom, affects run time and running temperature.

thanks alot bro...care to explain to me abt using 7.2mm which takes away much of the bottom? does it mean that i'll lose out on bottom end power and only able to get top end power?

VR12 Legal pipe will be best for you. This is a overall pipe that give you good bottom end and top end power.


If you use 7.2mm, you will have crazy top end. However, you need to lower down you first gear as lower as possible.

Thumbs up Skyline pipe

Hello to everybody.
This weekend we had O'Donnell race at Revelation track.
Weekend before the race we decided to try Skyline VR12 pipe on our motors and found that it is better for us to switch to this pipe. It is working ammezing-really good all over the range. We switch to VR12 on every single car in our team-we got 3 motors with VR12 in A-main, 2nd place in D-main, 3rd place in C main, 3rd place in B-main, my son first time ever got 2nd in A-main for amatures.
Ken thanks a lot for great PIPE !!!!!!
I sugest to everybody try it and you will not regret it.
Edward

I want to put some feed back about Skyline chasis for RRR- I got this chasis right before the race (our old was bent) and it took for me just 10 minuts to swap it-everything match perfectly, then my next worryes was how it will affect settings (diffferent material etc) but I really didn't feel any difference, but for sure it is much more scratch resistant, with regular set up we have much less scratches on the bottom. I love = quality, performance and price as well.
Ken, thanks a lot for good products.
Bring some more hope ups to make car more durable.
Edward

I will second that motion on the chassis for the RRR , I kitted a car at the end of practice and had to build a new car. Kenny was nice enough to give me a chassis and the thing worked perfect . It even is milled a little by the engine so you can take your clutch bell off without taking the engine out . This chassis is the bomb , thanks again Kenny for the pipes and tires too. Everything worked great.

i know they have two pipes. one is a tad shorter, reminds me of the mugen x12. probably has more bottow end. the other looks like the efra 2601... which pipe performs better? does anyone know the efra numbers. thanks.

I don't know if it has an assigned efra # but the skyline model # we use is the VR12.

The VR 12 pipe and new V-One RRR chassis worked great for me that weekend. Clutch maintanance was a breeze with the milled out clutch area. My package was good but I made a huge mistake and broke my car at the end of the first pit stop.

Still I think we had 5 people in the A main using he VR 12 pipe.
