Default Flexible Exhaust building material?

I'm looking to create a flexible exhaust for my Saito 125a. I want to continue to use the stock muffler, so there wont be a pressure issue. I have found there is limited selection on Horizonhobby.com for this engine. The exhaust pipe needs to be approx 12-14" in length. It needs to have 13mm threads on each ends to attach to the engine head and muffler.

Any creative ideas?

Thanks,
Mike

Saito is supposed to be coming out with a flex pipe for the 125 I believe the part # is SAI125A111 I don't know how long it is.

There is also this http://www.keleo-creations.com/Singl...-125-price.htm If it is any good to you.

Here is a pic of the 125 flex pipe off of HH web site

Saito does have a pipe available, but it is only 6 inches in length and on back order until November. I could purchase a custom exhaust through Keleo, but I would have remove my engine and mount assembly and send it off to Keleo. I would rather find a locally purchased item to create my own exhaust.

RC Outlaw-

Macs is perfect. They offer everything I need to build my own exhaust. This could be helpful to anyone needed to build/create there own exhaust.
