Yeah and it works just fine, much more power and rpm's than the std FG pipe, only remember to isolate the servos from the heat, like i've done.

That looks pretty slick.
Is that exhaust wrap? What kind?
Where does the exhaust tip exit?

Thanks for the pic and info.

Its called Powerwrap, normally used for 1:1 cars, for the manifolds and other places where the heat makes trouble.

I used 25mm x 4,5m , a bit to short to cover all the way to the end, but the purpose was to shield the servos from the heat, and it works nicely, still having to make some holes in the body, but not as much as without the powerwrap.

The exhaust tip exits just behind the right front wheel, in the top of the picture.

This Jetpro has another avantage, it puts some weight on the frontwheels too, makes it more easy to control on a track, i'm very happy with it.

How is it held on? Wire?
I think I'll order some, maybe make an heat sheild as well.
That is an advantage about the wieght over the front. I didnt think of that.

Thanks

i'd get on in black if your just going to wrap it up.. waste of chrome plating... if they come in black that is. yeah it does look like those poor servos will get really hot
