I hope you are comparing this pipe to the optional Kyosho pipe and not the kit pipe when you are saying this.. For the $, they are a pretty good pipe, the only down side is that the stingers break off (easily fixed with a little 2 part epoxy) and in my experiences offer a whole lot more than the "kit" silencer.
