ok, so we go back about a month ago, i had posted pics of a pipe I was building for my MT, well, i finnaly got it done this week and gave it its first test yesterday, more of a on the bench test to make sure no leaks where going to ruin my project, after about 15 minutes of idleing i was convinced.
So today I rebuilt the truck and decided to take it outside and actually test the pipe on the truck, my first impression was :clown: this pipe doesn't only sound bad-a$$ it actually performs extremely well. The front end was popping up and sitting the rear firmly on the wheelie bar as if nothing was holding it back. Wheelies come not only from a dead stop but from "on the roll" also and not just once in a while but practically every fricken time i hammered the throttle. I need to do more work on it now and make it a single piece pipe now that i have my correct measurements and correct tube angles.
Total cost for all this ??? about 20 bucks :blush:
heres a re a few pics of it installed ...

Buggzy,what combo of gears you using 16/48,18/46?Is that a stock engine?:)

as for the engine, its a 29cc with a stuffed crank. With stock can it wouldnt wheelie, now it does though :)

Nicely done Eric, very beautiful. Does the shell fit ok with it? and would you have to cut a hole in the shell where the the pipe is pointing?...
I hope you didn't run with the antenna resting on the pipe like that though...:)
