MRC has sold such exhausts. I have one NIB.
But i think that other brands have sold the same exhauts.
The car is a PB Nova but the engine seems to be a Super Tigre TST, a little older than the car.

1/8 scale servos Futaba FP-S7 and Kraft PS15-II. Both around 1975, never used.

Here are the three vintage 1/8th scale gas cars i have kicking around. One is a RC500 i think, the other is a serpent 6000 and the third is also a 6000 i think.

The third picture is not a RC500 but an RC300 maybe 300BD.
