i have tried both OS Speed & T. Shimo pipe. heres the result

OS Speed, the best is it save fuel so much even compared to 2630. but top end losses some power.

T. Shimo, overall was satisfactory, the reason for buying this pipe is because its stinger is only 5mm, which i assume plenty of back pressure. i still prefer this pipe over OS Speed, since T. Shimo is a little bit cheaper.

I must say the OS pipe did not work for me. Tried changing setting so much because I seem it works on OS but gave up after 3 tanks.

Anyone interested to try HEC pipe, let me know. The prototype I tested should be out in about 2 to 3 weeks so need to order now or contact Harmony. Not selling here, just want to share what I think works.

well, my os speed pipe was damaged, so i remove the manifold, cut the pipe down near the end, and use a 1/8 silicon exhaust coupler, thereby turning into 1pc (not inline), slightly longer than stock. power was totally different.

yes, definitely more than 5mins, and btw if u really want to save fuel, try os speed with os speed tuned pipe, as it lasted full 8mins, i tried that few months back. hahaha. but to my amazed, my frenz palmaris pr12 + 2630 pipe lasted longer than mine by a few more laps.

Most likely, that I can't see from your picture, your piston is no good anymore. I will keep the sleeve for future use. Sorry, we don't supply piston only

Time to get to the new generation Bi Metal piston and sleeve set.

Spraying the nitro cleaner takes less time than trying to restart hot and it seemed to work everytime I tried it during a race. Give it a shot. You can try a Sirio evo3 carb as well since it's plastic shouldn't have the restart problem.
Turn a bottle of compressed air upside down.... you know, the kind you get at office supply stores to clean keyboards....

It is compressed with freon and will really cool the carb down.

Warning:

Do NOT spray on skin. Even through clothes it will leave a freezer burn for hours.

hmm, does anyone know which series of Palmaris is newer? the one with longer heatsink or the shorter one? oso, y both come with the same internal parts, and y both need to be modded to prevent oil from leaking? is palmaris still out there? or has it been replaced by Axial?
