So THIS is the best pipe for .12's?

It will be on my X-12.

I like the price, $60 is pretty good for a one piece, how does this pipe compare to Novarossi, RB, and Max one piece pipes which are usually $80-100,

Thank you jwf_frani and C Verano,

So they are both legal exept the VR is better for the same price?

Alright, so if money wasnt an issue, you'd still take this pipe.

I dont want to spend a ton of cash on RB's or Novarossi pipes, this and the RD Logics pipe have an attractive price for a one piece.

I'll probably end up going with this one, not sure though.

I have a Rb concepts v12,, you think the this skyline pipe will work good with this engine? BTW I am running it with a STS pipe now, it has good top end but i think the bottom end is lacking alittle.

I Run an nova based engine also. REX rer and the VR12 seems to have pretty broad power band with that combo. If you need more bottom end you could try playing with your clutch adjustment.

Hey Kenny I showed up for my main. I could not figure out my fuel mileage issue until the fuel tank seal on my car broke in the E-main. My friend told me that it was probably bad all week end and thats why i couldn't finish the five minute qualifiers.

I think the pipe is starting to catch on in Texas. I even saw Ralph Burch running the pipe.

Anyway, thanks for all the support and help during the Nats.

Kent,

We at Maxy would like to thank you for all your support on and off the track. We had great success at the Nationals this week and would like to inform you that everything that you had sent to us, from the chassis, the pipes, and the rear shock towers were unbeleivably superb. Our O.S. engine was a lot faster and the chassis was very good. We came in second at the Sedan Nationals Master Class. These products are very good and would recommend Skyline to anyone that races.

Thank You Kent
