Of all the pipes I've used (and that's quite a few), the GBE was the best overall.

The TGN pipe is good but I've seen some get pretty damaged in rollovers.

i was bashing with mine last night and i flipped and rolled it five times the pipe did not get damaged and it didnt damage anything else either , what i did was weld the two halves together and removed the springs , its now solid as rock and steel and as i said it just wont budge in rollovers

THe V3 is great, but either the TGN or GBE is better if you ask me.

Rear Dom for 23/26/27cc motors and the GBE side bleed for 27/29/30.5cc motors, these are the best combos with the most power i have found. The GBE side bleed is the best pipe i have ever herd (and is quite but with a very nice note) then the TGN race pipe. Rear Dom has good power but can get loud when pushed hard and sounds 1/2 N 1/2.

so noone has tried the jet pro side pipe??.....Jet pro pipes have always been ##1 in my book

like splcrazy stated .....no coupler... its a solid pipe... so no movement ...its a dual bleed





This is the brand new Jetpro Eliminator pipe. This is a dual bleed pipe. This pipe can be adjusted by plugging the center or end stinger.

I love my gbe side bleed also

This pipe decision is crazy
I never thought that it would be this fun trying to decide which one to buy
