Default RD Logics Pipes.. Any Good?

Looking at putting one of these on My reflex with an OS .12 TR engine.

I currently m using the one piece pipe from Trinity and am not all that crzy about it.

Comments, good or bad, from anyone that has used the pipe would be greatly appreciated.

Talking pipes

i like them there cheap priced and work well. the bad part is that
there not very strong , so you need to stay off the boards .
i broken the stinger off my brand new roar legal pipe (I,M TALKING 1 HOUR OLD) but i jb weld it and is working like a good
used pipe now ,,,

It also helps you become a better driver, because you would try to not hit the boards and before long you will be notice that your driving is better and you don't have any board marks on your body .

you should mount the stinger within the cars track width
that way it will not be exposed when you swipe a board
or you could trim the stinger a litle bit for clearance issues.

I'm running the NTC3 pipe, the "Turbo' legal pipe on my GT-4 and the 1:8 scale pipe on my buggy. Have not been disappointed 1 bit. Especially when I think about what other pipes have cost me in the past.

Default RD Logics pipe

The turbo legal pipe works awesome on big tracks with good mid range and awesome top end. It is the only pipe I run in sedan.

I believe that official rules state that the stinger must NOT extend past the outer edge of the two tires on the same side. I would suggest if you're breaking the stinger, perhaps you should bring the pipe closer to your car so it doesn't hang out beyond the legal limit.

ive got a couple of them and i plan on buying more in the future

so far i have the .12 outlaw pipe (my favorite) and the .12 turbo legal

soon i will probably get one for my 1/8 buggy

cant even get close on the price and the quality is as good as any other i have seen

the only thing about them is the header where the engine attaches i hollow out the header some to make them fit on the engine gasket better its not necessary but it does give a better fit

i would much rather bend on break or whatever on a pipe/header that costs this much vs a expensive novarossi pipe
