The person that told me the true explanation behind DTM tip design actually is the owner/founder of a well-known BMW Tuning Company. He has more DTM experience with E36s but said that he'll never understand the American craze with DTM tips as they look odd.
I too like the idea of not damaging the whole exhaust system but that can seems farfetched as well ;) (normally DTM cars hit in "T-Bone" fashion ;-).
CFL, i'm confident that this is the reason. I don't see DTM tips being used currently in DTM, maybe they no longer have the sound limits? Something to find out...
The 91db (or is it 90?) limit at Seca is ridiculous!!!!
