Dangit....

Got stopped on my paper route today (Pretty fun job if you've never done it) because somehow (No idea how they came to this conclusion) my Race exhaust is a bit too loud for residential neighborhoods at 4 AM, luckily I still have the Stealth pipe so that's going back on until FocusFest at the latest, no way I'm going to that with the Stealth on lol

People are such whiners they don't respect us with our cars. Only car people respect and understand.

In America, most people live in neighborhoods with houses next to each other. They pay a person (the new paper company to the paper route person) to deliver newspapers to subscribing residents, to toss newspapers onto their respective porches (the front of a house). This used to be handled by a kid on his bike in the good old days......... Ahh the good old days!

A more "country" route has tubes by the road (by mailbox) that the paper can be delivered to from a car window.

Did the bicycle thing myself....

I mean it as there's a lot of people that don't understand why we like an exhaust with some noise and how we put time money and dedication in our cars to make them how we want but a lot of people look at it as an annoyance when if they had the passion for building and tuning your car to how u want it then they would have more understanding on y he has an aftermarket exhaust. And he has an fs werks exhaust on his car he has a muffler but no reasonator so by putting the stealth pipe on he is putting a reasonator back on

I got stopped by the police because some people called in about "A loud car in the area" but the Stealth pipe went on easily enough. After having the Race on for that long though I really don't like the Stealth nearly as much. It's too quiet, but I'm a fan of a good loud noise, grew up in the country with trucks, powersports, and hunting lol
