Team Tetsujin Stainless Steel Exhaust/Muffler Review


Tetsujin has available a variety of options for mufflers/exhaust. These are made from high quality stainless steel and are very detailed as you can see from the pictures. After owning numerous plastic made mufflers where the chrome paint has flaked off, or in the case of an R2 Hobbies a cracked muffler. The stainless steel adds a next level of realism and also provides an LED clip for backfiring goodness. Check out the Tetsujin Light Kits if you’re interested in one with a backfire option.


  • Made of stainless steel

Overall Quality

Tetsujin has been making high quality products in the Japanese market for quite some time. These exhausts are made from high quality stainless steel and as you can see in the pictures have a very high attention to detail. The exhaust looks very realistic and provides an excellent 1:1 replica. The stainless steel exhausts come in 3 styles to suit the needs of your RC body. The stainless steel feels solid unlike any other muffler we have purchased.

Product Review

The Team Tetsujin Aluminum Intercooler is available for ?1785 JPY so it is a good value considering the high quality of the product. We have owned many different exhausts from Yokomo, Tamiya, R2, SWP and can say these feel much more solid. Stay away from fugly plastic pipes from HPI, Tamiya, R2 Hobbies, etc… This is the real deal, plastic just can’t compete with stainless steel.


If you are in the market for a new exhaust/muffler for your RC Drift Body, these are the highest quality we have seen yet. These are built to last and will not chip or crack away like the cheap plastic versions available. They may be more expensive than most of the ones available on the market, but most of them are made from thin metal or cheap plastics. Save yourself the hassle of a destroyed exhaust pipe after a few rounds.
