RE: Recommend engine/exhaust for Savage 5.9 XL

Thanks for the quick reply.

In terms of the exhaust header and pipe, assuming I go with the Mach 454 recommended, what would you recommend for the exhaust header and pipe? Quieter is better for...

Thanks for your reply. All the spare parts that came w/the truck are "Kyosho" brand, and I see "Kyosho" somewhere on the frame. You're right it does look like that Losi truck though.
