Default pipe length

I'll be running an OS .15 car engine in my boat. Does anyone (maybe Ron) have a good starting point for length of header/tuned pipe?

Default RE: pipe length

I'm using the Mac Products pipes set at around 8-1/2" from the glow plug following the path of the exhaust to the fat part of the pipe.
There are couple of pix in my Gallery if they show up. I just tried looking at mine to see what I had loaded and got the dreaded X's in the boxes.
If you need help locating other parts, I've been through that with all of my .12 powered projects.

Thanks, Ron!

I'm using the Macs header and pipe also. I'm not sure if I want to put the pipe on the side or the middle. I like the way yours was done with the pipe on one side and the radio gear on the other. Is it pretty well balanced?

Yes, it balances out pretty well. This was a Grimracer hull that Mike built for me do that's the way it came.
The servos (Hitec HS 81 MG's)are mounted on the divider so those are almost centered with a small RX and a Hobby Zone RX battery from one of their planes.
