Default nitro hummer H2 desert truck build??

hey guys had a tinker with some spares today and though this would look pretty cool,if done nicely,its just an idea ATM and would like some opinions...

a toy H2 body ontop of a nitro tourer chassis,would use it for bashing and sand runs

i have a questuion too,what would happen if i run it with no exhaust?other than being extremely loud.
will it even run?

anyway heres some pics

looks a bit silly with all the space betwee the chassis and body-how abiout a nice bash plate?



chassis:


atm iv got the exhaust off as i need to mount it somewhere else to fit the body....

looking at mounting it the opoposite way as it should be,so the exhaust sits up and over the chassis therfeore not stopping body fitment.but with this idea i would need to bend the header pipe a little bit to clear the idle adjust and servo as seen in the pic below.ANY ideas?
would it run like this?;

how the esxhaust should sit/go:

how i want it to sit/go,obviously i need to bend the pipe to get the header to sit flush:


so to do or not to do???

About your exhaust question, it will not run worth a damn without the expansion chamber. 2 strokes require back pressure to pull air and fuel into the cylinder. No back pressure, no go juice.
