Hi!

I recently hav bought a FG MT Hummer and I love it so far. Now I am thinking of byuing a new pipe for the truck. First I wanted the Dominator but since many people have installation issues and the fact that you can`t use the gear cover with this pipe I have now turned more against the Samba pipes. I have looked at several places and have found two different kinds of Samba pipes that will fit the FG MT Hummer. Either this:

or this:

Is there a big difference between these two when it comes to sound and performance both in comparison with each other and in comparison withe other pipes such as Dominator?

I have a friend that uses the samba for the marder, and the car performs very well, that's not a wheelie pipe, but the car shows a lot of power.

In this video the yellow hummer runs one, you can see it (at least you can listen the sound of it.)

You can see it too in this post:

About the DDM I bought one, and here you can see the first time I start the engine with the pipe. About running, I've never run the car with that pipe, so I don't know how it performs.

The second link you post won't fit the Hummer body!!
It will only fit with a pickup truck body.

And if you buy the samba pipe directly from modelcargo you can save a few buck.

Get a rn tuning pipe. They make a couple of different pipes for that truck. Very nice ones i might add. I had a samba pipe for my monster beetle and it was friggin insane when the pipe came on. But that was a few years ago, now rn tuning makes a awesome pipe for this truck. I seen a few videos somewhere online with it, i can't remember where is has been a few months, but holy snit it hauled. A little pricey, but the performance was cool. They claim 5.2 horse at 12400. Check them out.

I ordered this pipe for several weeks ago and still haven`t got it. But I hope it is worth the wait......
