Default Exhaust Gasket

Wondering what others are doing for gasket on the .12 .18 engines using them or a bit of permatex. Or making your own.

I've had the best luck with the Team Associated gaskets as they are open enough not to block the exhaust flow. The Team Losi's are what I'd use next.

How good does the copper permatex hold. Ive always liked the High heat orange or is it red for cars and thermostats. Dave

Some you've got to watch as not all engine blocks are made with the same width at the exhaust port. Most are but I have found the exception to the rule before. With the being spaced the same, it makes it easier for the aftermarket manufacturers to make them all the same.

I noticed on the OS the aluminum is thin around the area the gasket sits Id like to see it beefed up there for a better seal .

I've always used copper permatex for working on vehicle engines, never had an issue. It will even plug a hole in the bottom of a gas tank. Ask me how I know been there - done that

im not sure if i would trust copper particles that close to the piston on a back breathing engine, i dont know if it would hurt or not. Try using brake quiet sealer...works good and peels off easy, cleans up with water and dries fast, high heat. I bought an empty squeeze bottle at the crafts store to run beads of it with. Works great, total control and width and no brush or paper towels needed if your careful. I've started using this on everything now. Rubs off better than anything, and stands up to fuel.
