Laguna Seca track is located near the coast and surrounded by houses that are in 1 million range and more.

It's sad that we have to think about quieting down the exhaust but paying a $1000 per lap fee would be even more unpleasant.

The pipes/tips are removable and can be swapped to a Akrapovic tips within a few minutes.

It's not about how it looks at the track, it's about how it functions ...

You are correct, pointing in the direction away from the sound meter ...

Can be removed and we use them at the track only ...

This picture that you posted is a pic of the car at Laguna Seca track. You can see what others do to pass the sound ...

It might look funny but it does the job.

Why there's a sound limit at Laguna. Don't know how much of it is true. The coalition does exist. http://www.southbayriders.com/forums...d.php?t=127571

I have the OEM Exhaust mod and I've hit over 95db numerous times.
