Re: Desert Fox's RedLine Revolt

The exhaust looks great but I'm afraid that its all going to break off at the header flange. It will last about an hour of hard running. You need to have a flex joint for turbo application or 2 donut type joints.

Re: Desert Fox's RedLine Revolt


This is a Gibson Exhaust for an L-S1 sandcar. There are no flex joints, donuts, hangers, etc. They probably wheigh twice as much as the exhaust for this buggy. The hanger on the buggy exhaust is made from the same material as the motor mounts and is in the same plain as the direction of the motor under load. Pleae explain further, I would like to provide Jim the best service, part I can. I understand vibration, motor movement etc. The main header pipes are .065 wall so they have more meat to them than much thinner stainless exhaust systems I have done in the past.

Re: Desert Fox's RedLine Revolt

For some reason the exhaust don't stay together good on these Revolts even with the joints. Maybe there is more vibration or motor movement than normal.

The reference to the word turbo is in regard to the quality of the flex joint. Flex joints for non turbo use are lightweight and will not hold up. The turbo type flex joints are much more durable and will not degrade from the heat of the exhaust. If you look at the pictures of completed turbo install on this forum you will see the type of flex joint referred to.

There is a very good reason the engineers at Redline designed an exhaust system with two donut joints in it. This motor and transmission installation on this car flexes way to much, espesially under load, for the exhaust not to crack. From the experience of many on this forum, I would say that all exhaust systems that were customized that did not have flex joints in them failed do to the excessive movement of the motor. Pilot was trying to give you a heads up and share the experience of those who have done this before and maybe save you the trouble of having to do the exhaust a second time. My advice is to weld in a high quality braided stainless turbo type flex joint in each header pipe and put a donut joint at the midpipe to muffler connection. This type of installation has proven to be effective and cures the cracked exhaust pipe problem. If you can make your sytem work without any joints at all, well then more power to ya. Take it or leave it, just my 2 cents worth.
