For anyone interested, who was waiting for the Gen 2 NJBT, it's out now. I was just e-mailed by the Hobby Shop New Jersey, and they have just released the new header that will not hit the suspension, and can be used with the pro-line suspension. Heres a link to it for anyone interested.

NCN - let me know how the end of the header matches up size wise with the AE pipe. I'm curious about that as well.

I run the Durratrax header for 2 reasons. 1. Cost 2. More compatable with the suspension. But, this new G2 is supposed to rid the suspension problem.

Thanks!

I know this is off topic, but how did they get that pipe to shine like that? My AE pipe is a dull silver color!

i know,i thought it would get you one without the hard work of polishing,but they do a polished one anyway,it costs a bit more than the dull one.

Christian and maxxconfusion, I am also now running the Duratrax header and I love it on my OS CVX .15. I had the GEN 1 but with the smaller clutch bells there were several clearance problems. I agree there is not a big enough difference in those two pipes to justify double the cost! But I know people were waiting for this which is why I put it up here once they let me know. I am very happy with my duratrax header and plan to continue using it. Woodie, just polish it, is it the new or old style. I have the new and just polished it with my dremel tool, it looks great.

I have the Gen1 and the duratrax which is exactly the same as the Gen 2. I like it better because ther is no a-arm interference, it won't hit the shock spring when using a smaller clutch bell and it still has plenty of low end grunt. I have used the NJBT, CEN, Stock, and now the Duratrax which is identicle to the Gen 2, and the Duratrax imo is the best one I have found yet. I really liked the first jersy header but the clearence issues bothered me.

It doesn't rub the a-arm? What size clutch bell are you running? I had it too and mine rubbed the arm and with an 18 tooth bell it was too close to the rear spring for my comfort. I love that duratrax header.

I'll go empty it now, thanks.

That header is a great header for low end power, maybe I got one that slipped through that fine Chinese quality control, where the angles were off just a bit.
