Default jetpro pipe on monster beetle pics needed

If anyone is running the monster marder 2 pipe on a monster beetle can you please post pics. I am trying to see how much of the body will need to be cut before buying. Thanks

Yeah, I also already have the fg pipe but, I was thinking about trying the jetpro ( it looks like alot of the body will need to be cut) just wanted to see how much more I will have to cut.

Hi,

You will only have to trim around 2" from the back of the monster beetle body for the jetpro pipe to fit, I hope this helps

Looking at the photo i would'nt have thought so, It should fit straight on without having to cut any more of the body

You have to cut more off of your body from what is shown. About half an inch into the rear window. I will try to get a pic as soon as i can.

Actually i did not cut quite enough...the middle of the pipe still hit slightly every once in a while. You want some room because that pipe gets pretty hot.

I didn't want to cut anymore of my beetle body so I just bought a new body that I won't have to cut http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_3462904/tm.htm

With the marder pipe you do not need to cut as much of body. If you were to use the mt5 pipe you would have to cut more of the body.
