I will try to get some normal driving video soon... Today however we are having like 20 MPH winds with 30 MPH gusts! So all you are going to hear is the WIND! LOL

I'm waiting to be able to hear the original kit with a set of those JBA shorties bolted on. The shorties should lower the pitch just a hair, which in my opinion is all it needs to be perfect.

Pfft. I leave for work early too. I just don't care what the neighbors think.

The other day I was cooking chicken on my indoor grill at 1 AM and I set off the fire alarm... And I live in a condo, which is only a little better than an appartment.

I live across the street from a Judge... needless to say I do care what HE thinks! And of course with the original version I would occasionally wake the wife up when I would start my car... Trust me... if Moma's not happy, nobody's happy! LOL!

Very impressive! Especially the drop in interior resonance.

I still prefer the original though.

Sounds good...

OK, How about the drone from 2k to 3k compared to the orig. system ?

Really didn't notice it drone... I would say overall it's a quieter system with a very noticeable improvement in that 2000 RPM heavy resonance range...

Scrming I would have to say I like the first one a lot better. But I am young and I like drone and I like loud pipes. haha I want my neighbors to hear me start it up and I want people to hear me coming. lol. I think the original system sounds a lot stronger. The second one sounds really good too but not as loud as I would like. It sounds the way the car should sound stock. PS I get my MRT 1.0 installed Wednesday! Just waiting for different tips to come in.

Thanks for the feedback!!!

Yep, Scott and I talked about this yesterday... I really shouldn't be calling things Version 1.0 and Version 2.0.... But I'm a computer geek by trade so that's how I think... LOL!

It really needs to be more like the Race version and the Street version! LOL!

So it really will be two different systems offering different sounds for different people/tastes!

Keep me posted on your install!

I installed the version 1.0 axle back on my new Camaro this morning.

Installation was a bit tricky as the instructions said 3 1/2" from muffler and it seemed like I needed 3 3/4".

Also maybe I need to scoot the end of the muffler back a bit so the tips stick out a bit further as I'm getting some black crud on the back of my bumper from the mufflers.

The sound is louder than I would have imagined at startup but settles down once it idles.

I will probably put some insulation in the back of the trunk to deaden the sound as it does get a little loud for me during acceleration.

Additionally the stock mufflers are indeed heavy. Getting rid of these ought to increase the MPG.

All in all a good buy for a good system.

Yes, based on the discussion I had with Scott yesterday, MRT will offer both versions. The more aggressive, original Scrming's Axle-Back and a more refined, but toned down version 2.0. At least that is my understanding...
