    I've just ordered an x-can with rear facing stingers so I hope they, someone, anyone, say's nice things about it ..........................

    It came recommended by my club members in the UK.

    Some have got the tuned pipes and some of those pipes sound like a nitrous bee on steroids..................

    I like my xcan over stock. I put on long stingers so it exits behind the rear wing. I chose it just because it is protected so much. I have a tuned pipe on my FG and love the sound of it but they are much better protected on the FG's

    I ran an X can for quite a few months, and they do work really well, and they are well protected too. I then started to use a DDM Dominator pipe and well...the difference is night and day. Now the Dominator makes the back end of the car a little bit heavier which can be a good thing. When jumping the baja seems to be a bit nose heavy as it is. Here's a couple of links of my baja when I was running my X can. It also had a 29cc at the time.

    I had the X can for a year almost, I have gone to the HPI Pipe and like it more.
    The X can is nice but offers too much bottom end for my driving.

    Thats good to know because our track in the UK really needs a lot of bottom end due to the design !!

    Do you know if it makes any difference to the performance/back pressure if you add the 6" stinger pipes and chrome ends ?

    Unlike a nitro very little tuning is necessary.. Always going to be some when changing pipes, just not too much.

    long stingers will affect performance but that is something you are going to have to work out to meet your driving style

    Even the HPI Pipe offers a ton of bottom end.

    I have run the Stock, Stock Gutted, Jet Pro 2, Jet Pro 3, Dominator and Xcan

    Performance from best to worst (bottom end torque)
    Dominator, X-Can, Jet Pro, stock gutted, stock

    Top End Performance
    Jet pro 3, Jet pro 2, Dom, X-Can, Gutted, Stock

    I now only personally run DOM for torque and JP3 for Speed depending on what i need for the day.

    6 baja 5b's, many hopups (including VP extenders, spool, carbon, and anything else they come up with to make em better!)
