Just to let you guys know, I'm going to get the VR12 Plus. The VR12 has gotten a lot of praise and recommendations in the V1RRR thread and by Grinder for overall performance. I'm pretty sure I'll have to replace it after only a few races.

Guys, I just got mine today as well. It looks even better in person and the prototype as well. The pipe is really popular and I had a hard time getting one for myself.

The shift point does change with the new pipe (vs the VR 12) and your 2 speed shoes may need to be tightened a little bit from engaging too early. We tested the VR 12 Plus with all kinds of engines, from JP's, Sirios, OS, Novarossi and Picco motors with great success. So far it has worked well with all the engines we've tried.

i just got back home from the Las Vegas Grand Prix race...

the VR12 Plus is a great pipe. it got a very broad powerband from bottom to top. very efficient gas mileage, no problem at making time at all. can't ask for more!

thanks skyline for the great pipe!

Thanks Ken for a great weekend. The vr12 plus pipe is totally awesome, great bottom, middle and top end. Got clipped couple times on the left side of my car during qualifying this weekend and the pipe stayed in shape.

Marc, your motor was screaming fast using this pipe, i think it's a great combination, you'll get them next time man

Good Job for the rest of skyline team, Congrats for Jeff Lin who finished 2nd with vr12plus pipe Peter Chu who bumped up to A main with vr12plus as well as Jo in A main who was running the plus pipe too and the rest of skyline team who's been running strong this weekend. Good job guys
