This worked for me: I ran a 3" Y pipe. That's it...You wouldn't believe how queit it was! The problem was that it was too quiet and was a dead give-a-way that I had a sleeper!! LMAO

We had to run mufflers last year. The rule was changed after the season started (who would have thought) and I didn't have any. So the first time out after the rule change, I just had my pit crew push me around the track. I got last though, cause he lost traction and fell down. Wouldn't get back up,...

Okay, I have to be honest here.

When he fell down, he complained of chest pains and COULDN'T get back up.

I had to tell the whole story, wasn't fair to him,...

Point the outlets away from the pressbox.

I've run mufflers (Schonfeld) for 2 years by choice. Its less distracting and I can hear the motor much better. Folks actually think we're cheating cause it sounds so different.
My ears don't ring after the race either.
