Default Twin Engine TMaxx Question....

I am fabricating a twin engined Tmaxx for the heck of it and to see if I can do it and make it work. The problem that I am about to run into is that I have 2 O.S. CVR-X .15 motors that I am gonna put on it, and they are both side exhaust motors. Now I could put 2 of the MIP Stinger Setups on it but I have had issues with the Stinger pipe in the past on the current incarnation of the Maxx.

What I am trying to find out is that if there is a header that would wrap around the back of the second motor and exit on the left side of the truck. I don't know and would love it if there was one. If not I am gonna be forced to use the Stinger's.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

No one? Oh well, guess there isn't a header to match my problem.

Maybe you can use a flex pipe to create what you need. I'm trying to imagine your scenerio, but cant seem to figure it all out.

no i have a twin well actualy had one tmaxx i tookout the second .21 but my set up was difrante because i used 2 .21 and the manifolds are very difrante because youn can move them all over the place.But any how no i doubt that is possible to get what you would need just go with stinger thats my best advice.

install the header upside down (if you are using the stock TRX .15 header), so it faces backwards, then use some rubber manifolds and piece of metal tube and you can make it work.
