NT18 car kit $350 Can
electronics $70 Can
keep breaking the exhaust manifold very costly
this s the second time ive broken the exhaust
please XRAY do something about this exhaust design make like the NT18T exhaust design add a rubber coupling 2 prevent the exhaust from breaking. or add bracket holder to the resonator 2 make it more stardy. On the packaging picture on the NT18 eve notice its got a bracket holder on why didnt u apply it to the final product.

Hi Mario
mayb u can spread the word to the XRAY design 2 solve this little problem
any help would b greatly appreciated.

that is the exact reason i bought the xray nt18 or any xray product because they have a quality product.So far I am diapointed.What happened?!st off 1 bad servo 2nd bogus engine.And where is the paper seal on top ot the Toki .8cc.The motor is the same as the Acme nitro 1/16 buggy and that head has the paper seal on the head.Could these engines be factory recycled.Both my engines have scuffs on the end of the slide carb chrome end.

yea i noticed the scuff marks on the slide carb as well...

your 2nd motor leaks the same as first? damn! something needs to be done
i think we need to start a petition for a recall!

no leaks on my motor yet 6 tanks in..
however I have noticed that the exhaust will bend easily if I just barely clip something. it tends to bend downward in the front of the car, so that it rests against the chassis. I was able to bend it back, but enough of the bend and rebending sequence and I could see it might break off. I'll have to be really carefull. I could see the exhaust being one of the only needed upgrades that is substatially usefull. Aftermarket will pick up on this I'm sure very soon...

perhaps even an aluminum bracket that slips over the exhaust end and bolts to the chassis somehow like larger cars do?

Interesting for my M18 project, with an 1.7cc engine I need a suitable exhaust.

But I am wondering, can someone give the difference in performance between this pipe and the original ? I see a very long manifold so I expect more torqe and less RPM.

are you talking about the nt18? And does that engine fit on the nt18 chassis or are you custom building a car.
