the RD pipe is very similar to the performance to Novarossi inline pipe 52605. I havent tried the RB outlaw pipe yet. it is RB 1700-202

is your RD an inline pipe or outlaw ? it seems Mr. Lam does not stock RD pipe, right ? the inline of nova 52605 seems expensive to me.

RD pipe is now available here. It was shipped to me by my buddy in LA. I find the RD pipe is same as JPL pipes which are made in Taiwan (MIT)


JPL pipes are widely available here.

Since when the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) starts making r/c pipe? hmmm... I've got to ask my uncle for that.

And, since when the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) makes r/c pipe?

Soon, we'll have the CalTECH pipe?

out of siesta shortly

i have this pipe, its torquey and offers good top. Use in conjuction with RB short manifold (1700-193) for best result!
This pipe now lying in my garage collecting dust! The stinger broke and the pipe dented left and right...a major operation is needed!
Show the pics later!

if this pipe were as tough as Shark Pipe, would love to stick with it as its 'fuel friendly' during mains!

I think the uprights are ok maybe the track you race on is a little harder on cars then most if the pivot ball evers pops out check your uprights for stress cracks change if so.
