Default Manifold, pipes & clutch for Novarossi S21P5XLT

Hi guys,
I recently bought a Novarossi S21P5XLT for my losi eight 3.0 kit. I am looking to buy manifolds, pipes and clutch assembly.
Recommended maifolds are 41019, 41020, 41021 and pipes are EFRA 3005, EFRA 9901, EFRA 9853.
Since this being my first car and i am planning to start racing with it, can you guys please suggest me the best manifold and pipe combination?
Also, do you guys recommend any other brand manifold/pipes (cheaper ones) that would be a good combination for this engine?

What do you guys think about this clutch assembly: 71000 which is in the novarossidirect website.
Or is there any other clutch assembly that you guys would recommend me?

Thanks

Check out the Novarossi thread. Tons of good info in there on pipes and manifolds.

But in brief, 9853 is usually a good choice for truggy. Strong low end and midrange with decent top end. I've always liked it with the 41001 manifold. It depends on the track though, even a 2096 or 9901 can work in a truggy depending on the size/layout of the track and amount of traction.

The novarossi buggy clutch looks nice, but it's not as popular as the Buku, Werks, or m2c. The Buku composite 3 shoe would work great for truggy. It's nice and light and you can adjust the spring tension without removing the engine. The m2c and Werks 4 shoe clutches are good also.

Thanks for the suggestion. FYI, i have a buggy. I never considered 9853 pipe before but it looks better than 9901. I might go for that.

3 shoe clutch?? I have not heard about one that. I had worked with only a 4 shoe clutch few years ago. Why go for a 3 shoe instead of a 4 shoe clutch?
Thanks again for the help!

My bad, thought I saw an extra T in there somewhere

Some people like the 9853 with the p5 in buggy as well. It's probably best paired with a round header like the 41021 in buggy to smooth it out a bit.

As far as clutches go, the Buku is to standard three shoe clutches as a Tesla Model S is to the 1908 Model T. The shoes use a kevlar based friction material which will last several times longer than any aluminum or carbon shoes. Plus each spring can be adjusted on the fly from a grub screw recessed into the side of the flywheel, which makes it tune-able for almost any condition.

I have tried that motor with all 3 different headers, 9901, 2096 and 9853 pipe in my buggies. I did not like the 9853 at all. I almost always ended up running the 9901 with 021 header indoors and then outdoors I would use the 2096 with 021 header. The 2096 will give the best mileage along with a little more top end while sacrificing a little on the bottom.

Thank you @bash bros & @token.
I think i will go with 41021 header. Is there significant difference between 9853 & 9901? If not, i will go with 9853 as it is cheaper.

As per clutches, go for #2000ABK-34 clutch set for the novarossi?? what about the clutch bell??

If your new to NITRO and or racing I would suggest you get your engine/pipe/header combo install your stock losi clutch first. Get comfortable with the feel and tune of your engine. Once your confident with that part of your racing program then move on to the 2000abk-34...
