    Just looked at easytracks website and they say that if you car is over the db rating for the track,they can hire you some extra silencing equipment.
    Anybody got any ideas what this is, it could be the answer to our tubi problems on some tracks.

    Andy, most of them are basically an addition to the tailpipe that reduces noise but can create a huge amount of back pressure which will

    a) reduce power, sometimes dramatically
    b) is potentially bad for your engine

    They are also very difficult to fit to Ferraris with twin pipes that are close together
