    I haven't seen much in the market for pipes for the T maxx. Haven't looked real hard either though.

    I ran it Saturday for the first time in a while and it ran very well. I just need to get a new ez start for it. Mine is in need of new gears real bad.

    I need a new tank for the slash also as the lid doesn't seal tight and it leaks all over in bumpy conditions.

    The pipes for nitro motors are slim pickings nowadays. Electrics dominate. For 500-600 a OS gold with matched pipe. About 3.5 HP. That should work.

    I forgot all about this thread. A lot of updates.

    Blew up the T Maxx 3.3 Ordering an OS replacement I think.

    Got an entry level plane. Flew it once into a pine tree.. 20170923_181952.jpg

    I thought you were just a bad camera man. At least I never got my Cessna 182 stuck in a tree. I did lawn dart it once......okay......twice.

    What engine is on that? I can't say I've seen an all BT setup like that.... Didn't know it existed... What does it do to battery life?

    Lol. Once I started Google get it I realized that. I've been pretty big into it and had never heard of it.

    I think I'm ordering the 21. How's it compare to the Traxxas 3.3?

    Never had a 3.3. When I first put the 21 in I hated it. I would just flip it on its back. Put wheelie bars on it, broke those off. Just tore up the car. Put the plastic drive lines back in it to save the diffs. Bought drive shafts by the bag. Ended up changing the pipe to mellow it out some. If you go any bigger than a 21 you'l lose precious RPM's. A lot of them. I originally was going to dual supercharge it. Google that. I have heard good things about the 3.3.

    I liked the 3.3 but want a little more. I think the .21 is the way to go. I don't need more than that.

    I'll try to remember to post up a pic of the exhaust that kicks butt. If you don't have the WFO or full on brake finger like me, it will work awesome. I don't finesse anything. The one that's on it now is for looks more or less. I do need to clean it up, lol.
