    Exhaust

    Im looking for some knowledge on exhaust here. I'm a mechanic basic principals free up the exhuast to a certain point youll make a littl emore power. Is this true for these 2-stroke nitros and is there exhaust options for this truck, and where can i look?

    yes thats right a good tuned pipe will make a performance difference..
    ERCM 222SB Tuned pipe pricey but its the best..it will help give you every ounce of power other pipes may miss..
    THSracing THS1046 tuned exhaust is great..
    dynamite revo power pipe dynp5015 is another option..

    You need some restrictions in the exhaust to create enough back pressure to make it a tuned pipe, take away the back pressure, and you just end up with a metal tube. So freeing up the exhaust could actually make it worse. Be careful!

    I'm not a track guy, bashing all the way... always on the look out for different spots..
    All I can say is I've tried many different pipes, and none of them caught my attention like a ERCM..
    more power, better response, awesome sound..they do what a pipe is suppose to and they are hand crafted...
    Right on glad you like my vids, subscribe

    Not only that but then there's this thing called scavenging. A principle that's extremely important for proper performance...... The pipes and exhausts are tuned for this. Not to mention if you don't have enough backpressure you will not get enough fuel and oil into the engine when you need it.... Fry City....
