Actually, I think you're right.
Now, how did he get the engine over so far without fouling the top plate?
Maybe the tank is moved further forward?

Dunno, but I presume it's sorted with the throttle servo setup.
What's that alloy bar across the top of the top deck above the throttle servo?

I will do tests on Friday against RB E1751-193402 pipe, and against Sirio S12-200006 pipe.
Let you know on Monday after the race my conclusions.

Well, I had a fairly good race yesterday. I made a 5th place overall considering I had some trouble with my transponder failing erraticly on the final.
The Mugen pipe worked well, it gave me more top end than the other pipes, but i think I should've geared my car differently to keep pace of the leaders. Overall it is a very complete pipe, definetly worth the investment. The other driver on the track with a Sirio engine had an RD Logics Turbo II pipe, and I outruned him on the main straight permanently, and kept a 5 car lead on him during the total final heat.

SORRY GUYS FOR THE LONG POST...

Thanks, Alfonso, for the feedback...
I'm just buying this pipe as this weekend I got one pipe de-stingered and another one completely destroyed... This happnes when you are no used to race in a specific championship and you have to qualify with the worst drivers...

Now my report:

Raced this weekend in a track I love the most... I feel very bad knowing the worlds could be on this track but will be on a worse onw...

In my first qualifying i had problems with gearing as I was breaking in the engine... In my best Qual the throttle servo screwed me up...

BTW - I'LL HAVE TO BUY 2 NEW SERVOS FOR THE WORLDS... STICKING WITH ANALOG ONES, WHAT DO YOU GUYS RECOMMEND?

During the main, we were 3 drivers turning the same lap times for 5 minutes... I was in second, there was always only 1 meter between each car... Then the third guy flipped over, and the first one got radio problems... So I got the lead.. and about 5 minutes before the end I was about 2 laps in front of the second place friver, my wheel came off in the furthermost point of the track... It cost me a 1:25m lap... sixth place for me...

But the car was amazing and I made the best lap of the race...

BTW- YOU GUYS USE THREAD LOCK ON YOUR WHEEL NUTS? I had probelms in the past with thread lock melting serpent wheels... what about Mugen Wheels?

Wondering if I am going to meet any of you guys in the worlds next month...
Take a look at the drivers listing
In Brazil they sorted the drivers in the listing after the Nationals results...

damn... what a long post... hope you guys dont feel bored...
