Default Pipe gasket

My OS.18 TMAXX split the plastic or rubber gasket that goes between the pipe and the header. What kind of stuff can you use to replace it? I would rather stop at the hardware store on the way home than drive 10 miles out of my way to the LHS.
We took two trucks out yesterday, and one broke a rod end of all things, and I only had a dozen spares at home, and the bad boy landed on it top and the gasket broke and the failsafe came apart!
I have never had a good day stopped by less ominous circumstances.
It was almost dark anyway!

possibly a silicone spark plug boot if the diameter is large enough, or maybe wrap it with some gorilla tape? i'd just drive those 10 miles to your lhs. my nearest hobby shop is 72 miles.

i've had luck in the past using 3/8" high temp automotive heater hose.
regular heater hose will not hold up,, the stuff i used was red in color.
used it for a long time on my old stampede secured with small hose clamps

Thanks for the input! I tried to call LHS, but tey were too busy to answer phone when I called. I will probably just get one from them.
I went to the hardware store tonight, and could only find rubber hose, not silicon.
