    Talking Header for os18tm to fit on revo?

    Which header other than the actual OS header will fit with the os18tm on the revo to the resonator pipe on the back. I'd buy the OS but its like $50 on ebay which seems much just for a metal tube. And do I need any mount shims for my 18tm to fit. Thanks!

    For $45 you can get the THS racing 1046 exhaust pipe and header. This wil fit the TM and gain a little power also

    I use this header with my OS 18TZ;

    http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...n-Manifold-MTX

    It is a little shorter in length than the Traxxas header, has smoother bends, and it keeps the pipe further away from the body mount tower. It does not come with springs to mount it to the engine. I use 2 springs to hold it in place.

    You do not need any type of shim to mount the engine. It bolts right in.

    You can use the revo platinum header , you just have to dremrl the bottom a little bit to get it to clear the back plate and you may even need to dremel a lil bit of the plastic off the ez start if you use that set up . I love the 18tm wish they still made I I actually just scored one on ebay in really good condition I can't wait till it gets here

    I ended up getting a THS pipe setup off tower. Between the pipe the lc3 glow plugs I needed and other stuff tower actually ended up being cheaper than ebay. Between having to use different ebay venders and not getting a deal on shipping costs, tower with the $10/100 coupon code was cheaper by like $5 and I only have to wait for one box instead of 4-6.

    O.S. doesn't make it anymore. They replaced it with the 21TM.
