Does anyone recommend upgrading to the 5485 Tuned Pipe Dual Chamber Resonator? I'm running this thing with some buddies who have a small grass/dirt track with some little jumps AND ALSO on the street when we get that "speed bug" and want to go full throttle.
So, knowing that we intend to do a little of both, do I just leave it stock or is there an exhaust upgrade that covers the whole rpm spectrum? It seems like you either get something for low rpm or something for high rpm, but nothing that helps overall performance.
Any thoughts from folks who have made exhaust modifications?
drill the stinger on 5485 pipe. you'll see the diff.
Slash PE & Ja-two.
Well, I've currently got the stock (I think 5541) one on there. Did you mean to drill that one or are you saying to buy the new one and drill that?
He meant to drill the stinger on the stock one. I did it, and it got louder, consume more gas, more rpms, and you need to retune. Get a THS pipe, that's an upgrade. Also you can have the sleeve ported.

So the Traxxas 5485 doesn't do much, eh? Alrighty, thanks guys.
Yep drill your pipe and retune...I was going to buy a pipe also but drilled my pipe and I like what it did.
nutty like a squirrel turd....!!!!!
Thanks for the input, guys. I'll have to give this a try. Right now, I'm just waiting for the weather to cooperate a little so we can get out there and run!
Im just curious every body keeps saying redrill it. But no body say redrill it to what size? Interesting
That's a good point. It seems to be such a common suggestion that I think I might do a YouTube search to see some examples of what size people are drilling to. Looking at the opening, there isn't a ton of extra material to drill. I know on these cars that a small adjustment can make a big difference though...
I'm kind of new to this, but it all seems logical to me. Thanks for everyone's input!
