I really like mine. It's a little noisy but it is still in one piece after 22k miles.

Nothing better for a drag car that gets driven on the street.

yeah; its part of HOT RODDING. Its the whole experience; the sounds, smells, vibrations, the quirks that each car has...every little defect you know about that no one else notices. I guess I have an old soul, I dont get the "I want x-number of HP, quiet mufflers, triple overdrive and a hermetically sealed cabin....ugh

That spool should have been chirping tires and twisting axles in sharp turns.
