yeah the FD120 is the most popular , i have it currently installed on mine its really powerfull and really loud , but kinda feel its more of a low end power pipe , i also have the long side mount DDM pipe also , this pipe is more quiet but i feel it adds more backpressure maybe cos it has the integrated silencer , but both proberly seem to me that they make the same power and speed , but i personally like the appearance of the long sidemount DDM pipe cos mine is the chromed one .

What i would love to see from DDM is to make a FD120 style larger sidemount pipe , something like that would make insane power to compete against the massive TGN sidemount pipe

i have both the x-can as well as a jetpro silenced. the x-can was "REAL" cheap and gave it killer low end power. its also really protected. my jetpro wich i keep on all the time is an awsome pipe as well. its a good top end pipe. it screams at the top end. hust really opens up the power band. it sounds insane too!! hard rear end landings can do some damage tho.

whatever you do dont buy the TGN race pipe...its got a ton of performance but mine got thrashed in about 15 minutes of mild bashing. i had to trash it and put the HPI tuned pipe back on.

GBE!!!!!!!!!!
Trust me.. ive used all of the other pipes out there except the new Jet-pro.
The GBE is a great sounding, and performing pipe.

GBE pipe no way id never spend my money on that ugly thing lol , id still rather get the TGN pipe however unprotected it is . The only thing thats looking strong for a baja 5b pipe is the DDM long sidemount pipe , strong steel contruction and strong mounting locations on the chassis you cant complain about that

I beat my Baja every time I go out.
Look at the pipe... Still in great condition.. The header has had ZERO leaks and I have not had to tighten any of the pipe or header since I first put it on.
The side dom is very nice, but this the best pipe I have had out of the pipes I have ran.
The X-can still is the best protected, and best for Zero damage.
