Is there a reason why the US spec car has the exhaust in the center of the car?
Same here, definitely. The 111s exhaust is beautifully integrated into the rear of the car while the planned design is exactly the opposite - just hanging there below the diffuser, looking tacked on. Hopefully an aftermarket exhaust can address this deficiency without moving the car out of stock class or being belligerantly loud.zvezdah1 said:I preferred the 111s type exhaust myself.
tonyyoshi said:um, really? Full titanium system including manifold, CRP and exhaust not good enough? whole thing weighs 10kg, not good enough? sounds like a ducati on steroids... i had a tubi on it before and it was nothing compared to this. Yoshimura is THE definitive bike exhaust manufacturer and they only make a couple of exhausts for cars on a custom order basis. US$3k for a stunning piece of kit.
Lotus is bound to much more rules than just engineering issues.jml1952 said:I'm confused. If it's that simple to reroute the tail pipes, why wouldn't Lotus do it?
Nobody outside Lotus knows the exact configuration of the engine and exhaust pipework, so this is largely speculation...Clyde said that they can't - care to elaborate?
Rules or physics, or what? We probably don't want carbon monoxide leaking back into the cabin of the car, so does that have anything to do with it?
