Ive used many bisson pitts as well,`all with no problems, but I also used a Jtec on a DL50 for 2 seasons. It held up extremely well, never came loose once.

Re: pitts muffler strength

I bought it from Hobby King, $37. the aluminum was to soft and thin, I could squish it with my fingers. First, the mounting holes were to big for the 5mm bolts, more like 7mm. second, even with two support brackets mounted to the muffler, the flange warped and came loose. I even tried longer bolts and a backing plate which fit against the mounting bolt tubes, and even wired the bolt heads. After doing all that, the bolts were fine but the flange warped again. The quality is just not there IMO.
It's okay Pluto, I'm not a Planet either.
