    086 pipe exhaust deflector

    Due to the stinger design on this pipe, is there one that fits or a solution someone has come up with? I couldn't find anything searching.

    Tower hobbies has aselection of Exhaust Deflectors. You can also find them in Hobby Shops in the Airplane section.

    Can you show a picture of the pipe and how it fits in the R/C?

    I use exhaust deflectors on some of my offroad Trucks to keep the oil off the body.

    RE: 086 pipe exhaust deflector

    Um, I know it just might be a personal thing but I would not recommend the exhaust deflectors. They cause additional back pressure in the exhaust system and the additional length added also changes the tuning characteristics of the tuned pipe. Tuned pipes and headers are made a certain length for a reason, if you change it, you just changed your powerband of your engine and you will also loose top end RPM. Not only that, now you are just aiming the exhaust and oil at your back tire. I would personally just deal with the little bit of mess. You can drill and extra set of holes in the flange of the pipe to adjust it up or down as needed, to me that is a better solution.
