Default Shark pipe

What do you think about this pipe? Is it as good as h.a.r.d. says?

I would personally say that ts pipe is very good as it's H A R D and strong. I'm using one and hv not complains but only you will loose a bit on the fuel consumption as ts pipe sucks fuel. I would ay that ts pipe is good for it's top-end..............

what ws the temp reading on yr engine. if i'n not wrong you're on 16% right? i'm not sure will the nitro percentage play a part in fuel consumption. with the same engine/pipe like yours my can only last for 5min++ but ts is on the rich setting.

There are 2 versions: Legal & Outlaw

Legal is good for all rounder & good fuel consumption. Yes, with my S5 & reasonably new foam tires, can achieve 7 minutes heat completion with 1 or 2 laps to spare.

Outlaw is great for bigger tracks & yes, it gobbles down fuel. So if you're in the legal race, the pipe will be great. But if you're in the outlaw, IMO try something else....

yep on the 16% reaching 128deg max...but carb still stay at 60-70degrees. Seems like leaner on HSN ...but thats the best performance...anything lesser than that is just not Max...i better put back my RS5 STS then.

Using Outlaw here...7mm...manageable pit time.
