i gave my boro cai a makeover, and its a lot better now. it used to be held together with ducttape , and that slipped so the whole intake would sag into a V shape :eek: and fall off a lot. i redid it by using jbweld to attach metal strips that had screw holes, and i replaced the ducttape holding the soup can and first pipe together with a completely jbweld seal (yes, the soupcan is still there). its totally rigid now

The tube says epoxy steel resin. Whatever the hell that is.

I used it to fix a muffler / tuned pipe on my r/c car. :D Works good.


And heres a pic of the rubber couplers:

JBWeld is a 10 to 30 minute setting epoxy depending on the type purchased, with a steel (powder) filler. What makes it soooo good is the strength of steel (for compression loading) and the epoxy that sticks really well, and can be used at elevated temperatures without melting. Epoxy (thermo-set) will burn, and when it does it decomposes, into a crumby powder, no melting.
