Before buying a pipe have a engine picked out. Cause certain pipes work better on certain engines. But I don稚 know about reds engines never had one or a reds pipe. Sometimes some cars won稚 be able to use a long header on a pipe cause space is limited.

Get a 41032 header and 9886 pipe if you're bashing.

So why are you trying to use a REDS pipe on that engine?

i would do some research and find what pipe people have used on that engine , rather then getting rid of the "tuned" one thats already on it...
if you put that reds pipe on it and it makes performance suck or doesnt fit etc then what? another RCT post about what pipe

Hpi have their own forums for their own cars

For sure it will not fix any broken parts......
Why did you come up with that pipe? The looks, you can get it cheap or did you read somewhere that it is a good pipe?
The performance of a 2-stroke engine stands and fals with the exhaust, thats a basic rule of 2-stroke engines.
OK, true that most RTR pipes are not optimized but a low ported engine giving a race pipe is also no optimized combination.
