T Maxx Dual exhaust?

Post by Olbeedo » Wed Nov 30, 2011 5:58 pm

Is it worthwhile to upgrade T Maxx 3.3 exhaust to the RD Logics Dual Exhaust, as far performance? :?:

With Dual Exhaust do you lower the back pressure ?
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"

Yes it does and that's not always a good thing. Nitro engines need back pressure to keep a consistent and smooth idle and throughout the entire range of throttle. Usually things that are mainly for looks although it will give it a slightly deeper exhaust sound. Rdlogics has been known to produce some good power upgrades though. look at their superchargers and nitrous injection kits. 8)

A bud tried the supercharger and got a bit more top speed but not enough to justify the purchase, going light weight offered the same increase. Looks cool as he!! on an r/c. Here is my maxx.

I read somewhere that any of those add ons, bolt ons, or Nitrous/ Supercharger upgrades are borderline. Your nitro motor will only take so much

and the performance enhancers will wear the engine out alot faster. Buy a big block and lose some weight is a better idea. My thoughts anyway...

I have two Losi 10-T's, one is brand new. A Team Assoc MGT 8.0 with reverse, brand new never run and a brand new HPI RS 3EVO+ Cuda.

I keep getting wicked deals on the nitro rtr vehicles and am losing interest in nitro. Gotta stop buying them!!

I feel you, with all the Lipo technology the runtime on electric is awesome. Nitro is cool but the maintenance is a bit of a pain but I tell ya the sound of the engine and the smell of fuel burning is addicting. I draw a crowd where ever i run. I saw a couple fellas running mod clods and got the bug, once I finish up my Maxx I am building a Brushless Clod....

Oh by the way I heard on another forum that the dual exhaust pipe isn't so good on the Maxx and makes tuning a real pain in the butt, I think I'll pick on up for looks once my Maxx hits the shelf. :lol: If that ever happens.

I ran a dual exhaust set-up on my MGT .21 but the dang pipe was so loud I had to have ear plugs in while running it. It did gain some top end, but man was it loud. I had no issues with tuning though...

I have those same wheels but started stripping out the 14mm hex on them so switched to 23mm dace adapters with Proline Velocity wheels now. It is so much better now. Those wheels are just too big and have a ton of mass to turn. They do look cool but not practical....

I didn't have a problem moving those wheels and tires, but I did have a problem stripping a hex on one wheel.

I haven't run them yet, I have a set of road rages on stock clod rims, never actually considered stripping the hexes, maybe I'll save them for the Clod project. Aren't they the same size as Clod tires?
