    i put the exhaust pipe so that where it connects, its barely in the rubber tubing. in other words, i pulled it out a bit. is it just me, or the engine doesnt rev up to redline cuz of that? or is it cuz of sumthing else? wen i had the pipe connected to the header very close, the engine always redlined...

    Try using longer tubing to connect the header and the muffler together, the tubing can be found in the plane section at your local hobbie shop , RED

    The closer you place the pipe to the header the more power the engine is gonna produce. Try it Where it is supposed to be and then move the pipe closer by 1/8th inch each run. Make sure you time the runs and mark the distance to see the improvements. When the vehicle goes no faster in a run thats where you want the pipe to be. Oh and dont re-tune anything during the process or you'll have to start over. I think RC Car Action did an article quite a while ago about that. I'll see if I can find it.
