Ive seen roughly 4 different ones, they are around... just gotta drive alot haha
That was me. My mother in law lives there.
I was creeping on you haha, not many ST in the Marina area... is that Mbrp? Sounds loud, how is it in the car?
Yes, it is a MBRP. Over 3000 RPM, the 'drone' is pretty bad in the car when cruising. But if you are WOT, the drone doesn't present itself. When I get sick of it, I will install one of these (Flowmaster) in the rear muffler location and see if it mitigates the 'drone'.
The real question is does it help keep tailgators away
Maybe if I sat on the rev limiter... Next time I'm in the West LA / Marina, I send you a shout out if you want to hear it yourself.
That would be great, thanks
Finally saw my first fellow FiST in traffic the other day. Was headed south on 405, just south of the 101. His was also a black FiST... and had painted his stock rims black. He had a UCLA license frame on the back. I honked at him to give him a thumbs up, but he was zoned out.
I haven't seen many or any at all. The only time I've seen more of them and on the move was up on Mulholland Hwy, near and around the Rock Store.
I needed to clear my head, so on Sunday afternoon, I drove up Stunt and over to Piuma. It was raining pretty good. I was impressed by the car's stability control. It never broke loose.
Yeah, the little ST had me grinning big time on Stunt, Piuma and Latigo. And that was when the car was bone stock.
If you ever want me to be your shadow on those roads, let me know.
or vice a versa...
I usually do my own thing, but wouldn't mind meeting up with a few locals. I've met Teezlr on Venice Blvd & National while he was driving his IS250 asking me about the FiST. A few weeks later he picked one up, recognized me on one of the forums and gave me a shout out identifying himself. Perhaps we can have a westside meet up one day.
Meetup would be cool. I am down. No, I put my name down on the Octane list, but every time i go on their site, they do not have any classes scheduled.
yeah, I'm also waiting for them to post up the new schedule for 2015 to see if I can make it.
Hah. I went up about half way to the snake on Sunday also.... was a lot of debris from the rain running off the mountains so didn't stay too long.
I just got nailed for my MBRP exhaust. Happened in the valley near my work. Looks I am headed for the CHP.
I was playing "Dodge Rock" on Stunt.
bummer. pain in the ass, which is why I prefer to be as sleeperish as possible. A number of users of mentioned the MBRP being on the loud side. I got tagged for a loud exhaust before years ago with a different car and took it to the Sheriff station to sign off. I think they and CHP can sign off, but not LAPD. Either way it's going to cost you your time and money, they charge a fee to sign you off.
Definitely a pain in the ass! Going to try the CHP without doing anything to the exhaust. Wish me good luck. If it doesn't pass, I'll do the Flowmaster install. It's only money.
