Do you run the 4mm RD Logics chassis by any chance? I got one a while ago, but been afraid to run it due to its higher CG. and what effects it might have... and...haven't had time to test it. So if you could...LMK. Thanks dude.

sorry but you are not correct

a heavier chassis will give you a LOWER CofG not a higher one
a heavier top deck would raise your CofG

I'm not quite sure why you are replying to a post about a 4mm chassis with a test drive impression of a BMW?

But since we are at it, if you feel the Z4 sucks, than you should probably get another Taurus or any other marble of American auto manufacturing.

I might throw my 2 cents in here.

Nothing in my opinion beats Japanese and German cars,i love both and have driven many mercs and beamers as part of my job and absolutely love japanese cars and have to say my favourite was the R32 Godzilla(which i owned)but my dream car is a R34 hopefully will have soon.

Did he mean the rd logics chasis has a higher cg because its thicker and it raises everything thats attached to it?Is it countersunk to remedy the 1mm difference?

I'm going to be ordering a new tuned pipe in a couple of minutes and would like everyone's opinion.

Presently I'm using the stock REX pipe and Mugen manifold and had previously used a Novarossi one-piece. Unfortunately the Novarossi was mangled when I slid into my starter box BUT the manifold is still good.

Should I?

- Purchase a one-piece or two-piece RD Logic pipe? (Manifold and pipe)
- Purchase a two-piece pipe (Pipe Only). Will it fit the Novarossi manifold?
- Purchase a one-piece pipe RD logic (Pipe Only) and use with the stock Mugen manifold?

Which is better one-piece to two piece pipes?

Which is the equivalent to the stock REX pipe, the Novarossi 51602 or 51603? My stock pipe I actually like but the stinger was pushed in a little in the last race.

I don't want to get another two-piece Novarossi because compared to the REX/Novarossi Black pipe I found it a little softer metal.

Any other brands anyone would suggest and where to purchase online relatively cheap?

Thanks,
Puma

if you are looking for a stronger pipe that survive crashes, go tfor Shark Outlaw pipe. Two piece and in-line available.

Has anybody ever tested the Fantom 2 chamber pipe, the steel one?

I just got one and hope it will perform as they promise
