I really liked the performance offered by the venom but glue the stingers in place cos they will fall out.
The head is a good thing i feel, but SP Racer who has been to the Kyosho Cup etc doesnt feel that they're so good, for me it represented a massive drop in operating temp, however I upgraded shortly after to the Novarossi so I have no long term experience with it. Lue's a pretty easy guy to get along with so we may as well ask him what he thinks and why? Input please Lue!

I got a pipe that Sir Sola (Sp Racer) recommends. The part number for Radio Model Supplies is EAGPB1503.

For the special Blue Cylinder, there is now major improvement.

Maybe it would help with the cooling of the engine but not by much. Its just there for the looks. So don't waste $71 on something with just looks, how about 2 speed?
Chuck in about extra $30 and you get two speed.

To me the blue sink is more about looks...

I'd save the money and put it towards a new engine when the stock one dies.

I suppose first and foremost you need to decide whether or not youre gonna race and if so what class before you too much.

If your gonna race youll need tyres straight away and then depending on the class possibly a two speed.

If your serious about upgrading later the head is more than likely unneccesary.

Do you know the specs for the classes at where you want to race?

the class ill be running in is the nitro tourer class mentioned before, I think ill try race this season but not too seriously as its already been going for a while, witha fair few people with stock cars now I hope our club chooses to run a Stock class. 2 speed I dont want right yet as then id be going straight into nitro pro tourer.

For now at least I will stick to running rubber tires and have bought a set of Take-Off's to try out anyway and ill keep the stock ones and just buy cheap stuff to bash with.

Now the eagle pipe is about $20 cheaper I dont know which one to get also the thunder tiger ts4 header is better to use isnt it?

The venom looks cooler will this pipe still suit a new engine if I choose to upgrade at a later date?

Leave the header alone, The take-offs are excellent and dont worry about the two-speed then. The eagle or venom are fine as far as pipes go the eagle being the quieter of the two.I was aware you wanted to run Nitro Tourer but I wasnt aware of the class specs.
