EEM that's "Moral of the story."

Those are cool if you use them with lung power.

lone wolf, sch 40 is what everyone uses. it is the minimum rating that we use with the exception of using ABS on basic combustions

Just because it's sch 40 doesnt mean it's pressure rated. Make sure it has a PSI rating printed on the pipe, and/or if it says Cellular or Solid core. Solid core it good, Cellular is not good.

i checked the tubes and they both say: 280 psi and then somethin about 23 degrees celsius i plan to either use right gaurd hair spray ( i heard it does not gum up the inside fpo the combustion chamber) or pressurized hairspray (another suggestion from a friend)

are these requirement enough for it to be safe?

Yes that is pressure rated pipe. And the right guard is deodorant not hairspray. Use right guard, hair spray makes for a crap launch :(
