Default Exhaust Coupling for Miss Vegas

Does anybody know where I can get replacement exhaust coupling for the Miss Vegas. Tower Hobbies doesn't have them listed with the Miss Vegas replacement parts that you can buy. After about 20 tanks of gas run through it, it has finally burned up and cracked. Thanks!!!

toyotatruckin,

I tried using an exhaust coupler from my local hobby shop, but it was too soft. It burned up in one run. The one that came with the boat went thru about 20 to 25 runs before it burned up. It's winter time with 50 degree water temperature and I'm still burning the damn coupler up. The engine is running great and it not getting hot, but the exhaust temps is getting hot. I'm running 50% nitro, but that is what a lot of racers run without any problems. I even tried using automobile black heater hose and it's not working either. I'm thinking about welding the two pieces together and doing away with the rubber coupler all together.

I've had the best luck with the Aerotrend couplers in the past. I've tried GS Racing as it comes in a variety of colors but doesn't seem to last as long.

On TowerHobbies, the Aerotrend exhaust stacks comes in various sizes, does anybody know which size to get? I'm looking for one for the TC31, mine fell apart when I took my exhaust pipe off.

Measure the inside diameter of yours or the O.D. of the pipe or header. Roughly, I'd guess that it's 1/2".

A note to all you newbies out there. The exhaust coupler is not intended to be an extension of the exhaust header to the tuned pipe. If you use it in that fashion it will burn out very rapidly. Especially on a high nitro burning racing engine. The proper set up has the tuned pipe sliding over the exhaust header or at least butting against it, with the Silicone coupler over that junction. If you've cut the pipe to short and there is a gap between the pipe and header then you need to put a correct size "jumper" in to fill the gap. The "jumper" is a section of aluminum tube sized the same as the pipe or header.
