I think what he was saying was that by having the the tips pointing away from the sensor they could get away with running a less restrictive exhaust which was louder instead of running the quieter more restrictive exhaust.

There is a sensor - that was in use by the DTM governing body - that measures sound, and is fooled by a set of exhaust tips that curve upwards?

That surprises me.

Greg.
