Yep, the pipe wakes the stock motor up and helps the weight get moving. Plus that engine only has 2 minutes of run time on it. After the afternoon, the motor was already getting loose and gaining more power. Our local track is closed, but we will try and get some footage at a dirt field on Sunday.

I will have track videos next weekend. Everything looks beefy on the suspension and drivetrain, but as they say, nothing beats the snot out of it like racing for 2 hours.

RAMTech, Great looking pipe. Can you tell me how loud it is in db we have a 95db limit for racing here in the UK.

jetpro have just released a pipe too..i'd guess it'd be in the $170 range.
most pipes use chrome moly for construction not mild steel, i know vrc do, samba and pretty certain Dino does too even though he uses a heavier gauge...it's why the raw finish doesn't rust like you'd expect bare steel to...mild is too soft and too heavy for pipes

Do a search for mild steel, nickel plated 5ive-T exhaust.

even if they are what you've just alluded to, at least it's another option...the more pipe options the better, applies to all rc's...no need for sarcasm

Pipe are going to be a big part of the Losi. Its heavy and the 4x4 sucks power. Once you add a pipe, the truck comes alive.

Exactly..... Have you seen the videos one of the guys stops on a hill and it doesn't have enough power to start going again. He has to roll backwards and turn around and try again. Just like when the 5b came out same thing even with hpi's tuned pipe it was about a 60 percent power increase. This was the only thing I seen in there prototypes that looked dissapointing... I receive mine tomorrow and I don't even want to drive it till I find a pipe.

I received both of my trucks today one is for me and the other for my son. He is the kid in the picture. I will also be the tester for Jetpro's new pipe. The pipes will be sold for 189.99. I should have my test pipe by tuesday or wednesday I will make videos of the truck running with and without and also a video with one truck with stock pipe and the other with Jetpro pipe in a drag race. I will knock out this testing as quick as I can so production can start immediately. I am even taking a day off work! One of the pictures is next to a 5sc for comparison

The drag race video will be the key to showing how much low end power you need to get it off the line. Can't wait for your review.
