Default rear exhaust

Does anyone know if there is such thing as a tuned pipe for 1/8 on road cars that exits to the rear? I gotta get a pipe for my S950, and thought it would be nice to dump the oil behind the car, instead of all over the side of it.

You can try attaching a long sillicone tube on the stinger to lead the smoke to the back of the car.

You are going to dump the exhaust oil all over the chassis and rear tire.

You would be restricting the exhuast flow from the motor. In turn you could damaged you engine and you certainly would be affecting it's performance.Just let the exhaust flow the way it should. Yes, all over the side of that new painted body. Why? Because that's just the way it is. Later

Default I know

I know all that, that's why I was looking for a system that is designed to exit to the rear, I don't really want to rig something up that would hurt performance. I just thought someone out there might just make a bolt on setup to do what I want to do.

MIP used to make a similar setup for the T-Maxx, they still might. Have never seen one on a 1/8th scale circut car before. It would be possible to make one without ruining your engine, but it will effect your powerband. The engines in these cars are sensitive to any changes in length & shape of the pipe & manifold & also the gap between the manifold & pipe. If your engine isnt excessively rich the pipe out the side isnt a big deal & shouldnt cover your tyre with oil. The body will get dirty either way, the amount of foam that coats the inside of the body outweighs a bit of oil.

Default good point

ou bring up a good point that I am aware of, I know that this would affect the exhaust extraction of the engine, but I was just looking for a way around it. I guess the foam particles from the tires would make a bigger mess anyway, like you said.

instead of just cutting an entire hole in the side of the body a lot of guy's leave the rear portion of the hole attached and fold the body to the inside and back. draw the area you want the exhaust to exit the body and just don't cut the rear most portion. now just fold the body to the inside. it should be behind the stinger. you may have to trim whatever you fold in so it does not rub on the pipe.

this will prevent the excess oil from coating the inside of the body and your rear tire.

if you already have a hole you can always mount a deflector on the body just behind the stinger to do the same thing. it really keeps the oil from coating the entire inside of your body and the rear tire.

Default thank you

Thank you for the tip, and I really enjoyed all of the pix as well. 1/8 on road is no such thing where I live, so I really enjoy any pic or video I can find.
