yeah i know, but i'm like Tim Allen from "home improvement" i like modyfying stuff, but half the time it works worse than before, but i have fun doing it

mainly i want it for ease of cleaning. the mugen pipes cleaned after every race with water and detergent come out like new. i sold a mugen pipe to a mate recently and it was just as the day i bought it. the siro pipe, after just one day of use has black shyt all over it...and this can't be good for heat disapasion.

Alex will probably laugh at me, and say "disipate some good lap times first Tomas!"

but hey, that's me

one thing i learned up north was that some fuel on a rag will polish your alloy pipe up like new in no time! no chrome needed

Ella Re Tom.
Sounds like you have prety much tried to copy my mods.
Please post some picks so I can see your work man, If you dare.
With the pipe just use Autosol mag wheel polish which also doubles up as lapping compound for those that dont feel like running in engines for 3 litres.
Anyway just use Autosol and tooth brush at end of day, wipe up with rag and presto CHROME PIPE. Thatll be $5 for tip of the day.
cmn to Waylen this sundy??

yeah i'll post the pics, i didn't want to initially because i thought it was just a thread about Kickarse modifieds. i only did minor cuts and i stayed conservative in how much i "cut" i learnt from my first ever modded motor less, is sometimes more.

yeah im 100% going to whalen. i might even take all my toys down i'm 100% going for electric modifed, but i might also take the mugen..not sure but i don't have soft shore foams.

and here is something itchy b will be happy with...I GOT A 12TH SCALE! (a mad nice CRC job) so i might even have this ready for sunday! far out busy day man. i'm trying to catch up with all the racing i lost whilst i was having to stay home doing my uni assignments.
