The jet pro is usually a mid to top pipe. Hard to tell without dyno sheets which are nil these days. That being said it will be much better than the stock can. I just ordered a raw one from jetpro for the mtxl for 168 shipped. Also run 500,000 diff fluid in center diff and 100,000 front and rear diff for more punch.
Yea, hard to say for sure with no proof. I am running 500k in the center, and 50k in front, 30k in rear. Going to see how that works first. May do thicker later on. I plan on ordering my engine this week, going to call obr one more time and discuss it with them.

Got my mtxl in today!. Freggin pumped. On a side note I also wanted to mention to flip the clutch shoes. Run them backwards for even more bottom response. This is a popular mod in the hpi baja world I'm not sure alot know about.

They are the rc4wd super swamper 40 series tired. There about $180 for all 4, as far as size they are about 1" bigger in diameter and a little wider as well. A little power loss is worth it to make it look like that lol. The tires have to be cut to fit, as they are a 40 series (3.8") wheel diameter.

I'll look more onto the pipe and power loss. I'm really looking at the jet-pro. I like the sound of it compared to most of the others. Seems the fit/ finish is on par with the others, just Not sure about power.
how didu get the tyres to fit dude???they look badass!:eek:!

You need to measure both rim measurements on the mtxl wheels, if you have a 40 series wheel as well it helps keep the tire you will be cutting centered so it is perfectly round. Use the measurements and transfer it to the new tires and cut slow and very steady lol. Its a pain but worth it. I didn't take pics of anything.

Well ordered this hog today, he said there is a 6 day lead time, so will likely be late next week I should have it hopefully.

Screenshot_20180214-165022.png I didn't order a pipe yet, but will probably next week. Going with the big bore victory pipe. He said the jetpro is a good pipe but more for top end and I would lose a decent amount of torque and low end.

Haha I have been there trying to video lol, nice looking rig there.

I just ordered that intake as well off Detroit performance, got a decent deal I think. I have a bartalone clutch carrier now on my stock engine so I'll swap that over to the new one. Are you just running the prefilter on the pull start, Or what else are you running for a pre filter? Screenshot_20180214-201157.png
