The problem with me is that I had no guidence. I was buying everything that looked cool on my car. Expensive powerless HPI motors not knowing that for the same money you could buy a good OS engine. I also bought my son an RS4-3 with the entire stage d drift setup. I had superchargers on my cars and was a waste of $200. Now I have more sense about the hobby and know exactly what to buy that will make my car more durable and faster.

I haven't run my RS4 yet, but one of the main things I wanted to learn on it was drifting.

I looked up the weight of the normal RS4 3 evo, and its 3.85 pounds. Mine seems to be 4.5 pounds, so I'm not sure how that will effect its ability to drift. Hopefully it still can. Still waiting on a few more parts before the car is ready to try.

The engine I got with the car is a OS 18CV-R. I still need to find a good exhaust system for it, I don't like the one I got with the car. I'm leaning towards either the THS pipe and header, or the Tsais rear mounted pipe setup.

rx7 the pipe on my RS4 rubs the tire the same way now, its one of the reason I want to replace it.

That extreme rc mods pipe looks nice, but I fail to see how it can fit on a RS4 3 series car, notice also that they don't show that pipe mounted on an RS4.

both of you guys recommend the THS pipe over the tsais rear pipe. Why is that ? Why do you prefer one over the other.

I have the Ths pipe and know how it does. And the rear exhaust I've seen it on a car and the mt2 and it requires alot of retuning and for the price I picked the Ths pipe over Tsais pipe. Also I didn't notice much of a performance change WIth the Tsais pipe as I did with Ths pipe . That's just my two cents at the end of the day it's your car and money so what you want is up to you.

Thanks for the info jackedman, I appreciate what your experiences with them.

I know what you mean about price, the tsais pipe is $79, and the THSis like $36.
I'm not worried about retuning, since my car isn't tuned now, I have never run it since it was incomplete when I got it.

I had one of those drift kits on my sons car. It's way better than electric drifting, it's slo motion drifting for me. The nitro was way faster.

Well, you all agree'd that the THS pipe was a good one.
But, I'm never good at fitting in and wanted to be different.
After reading some good reviews on the Tsais pipe, plus I like how it keeps the car cleaner, and I think it looks very nice, I ordered one yesterday. I know its not as powerful as the THS pipe, but I'm not worried much about that, I'm sure the difference is very small. I'll post pictures when it arrives, should look real nice on the car. I searched around a lot to make sure the Tsais rear mounted pipe fits on the aluminum parts my car has, and finally found somebody else that had one, it fits fine.

With the shocks, and pipe on its way, the only problem left on my car is the roto-start. It has a tiger drive one, and the HPIstarter won't fit it. I'm considering going back to the original O.S. pull starter on the 18cv-r. I'm not sure the starter will fit, will it hit any of the aluminum parts like the rear aluminum diff, or rear suspension arms.. Another option is to use an HPIroto start backplate like they have on their 15-18 engine, but I have no idea if it will fit on an OS 18cv-r.
