Default Muffler extension

Looking for something to extend my exhaust pipe out for a smoke system. Anyone know of a flexible pipe that could be used? Would prefer synthetic type material over metal.

Ring up Valley View RC, they should have the extension tubes used by DLE

The extensions are made from either PTFE or High temp silicon tubing . As stated VVRC may be able to supply the standard pipes that DLE provides . If you need longer tubes do an online search for suppliers of ptfe flexible tubing or high temp silicon flexible tubing . You will need to know the i.d and o.d and of course the length you need when ordering

McMaster Carr is a good source for both the silicone and PTFE tubing. For silicone, they have quite a selection of sizes, wall thicknesses and hardness. While silicone is not generally recommended for use with gasoline, it works quite well for muffler extensions.

You won't find a company that ships faster than McMaster! They are a fantastic source for many of the things we use regularly. For hardware, you can usually buy a 100 of something for about what you'd pay for a few at the hobby shop.
