You know I have all those bits Mart. A seat base is a problem though. I do have a pair of old race buckets that are looking for a new home...

Looks a good track day, but can't see me passing 100dB - I'm normally over 102dB

That's interesting Dave, although the days I have done this year 2x Blyton and 1x Silverstone have been 105db I have not had any issues even on standard Roversport system.

I do have a Mongoose system however which I will probably run for this day as I understand noise is an issue here.

You can pick a stainless road car system up Dave for next to nothing on ebay these days.

Book it, you know you want too!

We run a baffled decat with the roversport system. So essentially a silencer in the cat position and can get down to 98dB. Don't notice a difference in performance between that and a normal decat. Just quietens the pops and bangs!
