:*( HELP!!! My buggy is melting. Does anyone know what I can do about the DDM Pipe melting the plastic roll cage at the back? I am scared that it will melt through eventually. Does anyone else have this problem?

You can stop the melting issue also if you would heat something up and bend the rollcage away from the pipe slightly...my rollcage after the meltings stopped looks as if it was made for the ddm pipe

I tried that alum. fule line wrap too. Didn't stop the melting, in fact it just melted into the braiding, what a mess that was to clean up. :mad: I ended up just letting it melt for about 4 runs then removed the roll cage and buffed the burnt/melted area with dremel and abrasive wheel.

Now since I did that I have a small gap between my rollcage and the pipe. Looks like the rollcage was cut out the match this pipe and no more metling.
