Hmm... Good question there. Most exhaust pipes are like 2.5 inch. This would mean 2,7 --> 3mm tube in 1/24. I usually use the rod from the frames that come with the kits. They're almost 3mm in size.

Besides that, 4mm rod is hard to find for as far as I know. Evergreen has 3.2 as a max for rod. -->

They also have tubes with lots bigger sizes, but that's very hard to bend as it will nod. I think the rod from the frames is pretty accurate, unless someone is able to convince me otherwise of that...
