Questions?? New to Onroad.... Need some advice

Hey guys,

Im an off-road guy making the switch to Onroad.... Need a little advice.

I picked up a new XRay RX8 with a Novarossi 35 Plus .21

Can someone advise me to the correct items to purchase.

Needing pipe, manifold, starter box batteries for starter box, body (Pre-painted would be nice and tires and Rx lipo.

Im thinking of getting this pipe but not sure what manifold they have a short, medium and long version.

Novarossi EFRA 2015


Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!
