I bought one of these from Bisson, its a lot stronger than the original DLE muffler, but no quieter, and it sits a bit high, so you have to turn the spark lead to the side or the muffler will melt it.

Yes,
I have a second one for my No 2 GF 40, going into a 88 inch Tigermoth.

RE: ECOMRC TigerMoth 1/4 Scale

You should here the OS GF 40.
