    The trinity pipe is probably the loudest pipe you can get.

    Loud doesn't necessarily mean more performance. I'm not sure you'd want a loud pipe, I know that if my car was any louder I would feel bad running it around in my neighborhood even in the middle of the day. If more and more people get annoyed with loud pipes then they will start complaining and the law will start cracking down on nitro R/C. I know it doesn't seem like it would, but dirt bikes are in the same position right now, loud exhausts are killing the sport.

    Just my $.02

    The tuned pipe itself can easily be mounted on the Jato.

    i also found that the traxxas exhaust deflector gives my resonator a really nice sounding tune and seems slightly louder

    i really suggest against this... all ur gonna do is upset people... and in turn, they will complain... and then alll the good runnin places, won't let u run there cause u already upset to many people..... then the next guy tries to run there... and he can't because of the problems u created...
    just my 2 cents.. and the pipe u r lookin at is a dual chamber pipe....
    been there bought that

    I agree with Forbes, you do not want to upset people in the areas you run. I used to be able to run a new neighborhood that was under construction, until a guy with a Savage would go out and run at all hours of the night. I showed up at 1 PM on a Saturday and was asked by the neighborhood association not to come back. Pretty sad. Also I am running the Traxxas dual chamber pipe and I have had complaints from my immediate neighbors in the middle of the afternoon. I basicly have talked to all my neighbors and came up with an agreement that I can run from 8AM -8PM and I agreed that if asked to stop running for a valid reason that i would. This has helped thus far and now most most of my neighbors are pretty cool about it as I approached them firts. Try to be mindful of others or it can make starting and running your truck an automatic hassle from everyone...

    I agree with Forbes and the others who are advising against the louder pipe. Although I like nitro and the sound to a degree, I wish my R/C cars were quieter. Anywhere other than the local track, I'm looking around to see if people are outside and enjoying a peaceful day before I fire up a nitro. If they are, I go somewhere else and let them have their peace.

    You may not want the attention a louder pipe will get you.

    as i recall u have asked for list of parts to build one from scratch... instead of being told to go to the parts list in the manual section..
    there were a few who actually posted...
    now with u being a new member... and being the one who are askin us questions.... thats not a way to get lots of info .....
    we tryin to protect our hobby from being ruined .... it benifits u in the long run too

    You wanted opinions, thats what you got, opinions on the loudest pipe.

    You also got your question answered for wich pipe is the loudest.
    If you dont agree with the opinions dont ask for them...
    or at least dont insult people trying to give you good advices.

    Absolutely and i said ty, i appreciate the help, im a noob when it comes to jato's so i dont even know what stock sounds like since i never had one, so im trying ot learn as much as i can, but the sound and speed it what attracted me to jato's, i shouldnt be downplayed, if you dont want sound, go electric.

    Rok you don't have to be disrespectful to those trying to help and give advice.

    And I would say into the thing about neighbors being "cool", my neighbors are really cool. When I'm running my jato, some people stop and ask after seeing it run and when I'm refueling come by and ask about it. And say wo that thing really "flies". If they have the time I tell them about it. One people have said "wo, thats what I should get my son for his birthday".

    And I have a single chamber resonator and it gives good power and noise(not upsetting the neighbors^)

    In a single chamber there is a "straight shot from the header through the pipe through the exhaust tip, in a double chamber there is a break and 2 chambers where the exhaust passes through(prety straight-forward). You know what a chamber is right?, it means basically the same thing in an exhaust pipe. Atleast thats my understanding from just my comon-sense standpoint.

    single chamber got more on Low - Mid range power, and the double has more top end speed.
    most the louded pipe is single like the "Outlaw"
