Hi,

Will the bartolone torpedo pipe for HPI Baja 5b fit inside the Kraken TSK Cage?

Thanks but the bartolone pipe used in that build is the torpedo version for the 5t which is a little different. Please see attached picture for the version for the 5B.IMG_20190616_185951.jpg

I really like the Kraken Sidewinder cage and body, but i don't want to spend all that money if im not sure the pipe will fit. I asked Kraken RC but they don't know, but they assume it will fit. But i cant use "assume" for anything πŸ˜‚

It's not a dent it's a precision notch πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ to clear the cage. I'm so glad I didn't buy that cage honestly, making my pipe for the tc cage was hard enough, that tiny ass cage would be next to impossible
Knowing a bit behind the science of 2 stroke pipes..... they work like an echo inside the chamber ........wonder if the dent has an impact on the pipe performance?

Nice rig johnπŸ‘ what mod did you do to the pipe?πŸ€” looks liked it has a dent in it?
Did you bend it?
The bracket that mount to the frame I had to slot the hole longer to push it in closer to the baja itself. Also that a clearance notch, not a dent 🀣

Highly doubt it did anything for power decrease. If I were to crush half the pipe then certainly. After watching that fact being disproved many times about dents you really have to mess up a pipe to impact the way it performs
