Yes boy, is only in trini some feel they can do what they want, but sorry, not at ARA @ ARC!



You will always be backwards. How will you determine whats loud and whats not? You need to have a DB reader at the event. But knowing your organization you wouldn't have the experts, just like how you don't have them for everything else.

Be ignorant of the fact that you cant distinguish whats loud and whats not, x2 pointed out a good starting point, you should at least put some boarders.

A dB meter would for sure be the correct way to determine how loud a car is, however there are some cars that you would not need a dB meter to tell that they are too loud. The real problem here is not so much the noise of the cars on the track but off of it. When on the track we have buffers in the bleachers and the fence that has a barrier, as well as the wind direction helping us out. But when persons are leaving and burning out outside the stables with their loud cars this is a problem.
So it is a case of maturity and common courtesy to others. Please remember that we are fortunate to use this facility, this is not a right. Even though we pay to use the car park we cannot do as we please.
There are rules and if the organizers cannot abide by them then they will be prohibited from using the facility. In the nicest possible manner I am asking that we support the event and abide by the rules of the owners of the facility

Were you at the briefing meeting last night to hear what was discussed with regards to the measuring of the DB? I highly doubt otherwise you would know what the plans were and you would have been able to voice your opinion and make suggestions, something I doubt you all have the privilege to do down at Camden.

Its simple really ... if you don't like the rules and regulations, as Autosport said "go and stay down Camden". Don't come here with your negativity and try to make a bacchanal out of something that working good.

Guys, are you are measuring for noise pollution/problems? if u measure the car at 100 db from 3ft then 8ft away from the car it will be less. When making these measurements you do zoning (out side of the carpark the level should not exceed let us say 86db in reality your mic could be more because of the frequency). I think you major problem as stated before is with the guys on the street. For the cars competing you need to establish baseline of is accepted db levels. Also give a timeline for it to be corrected/adjusted.


I was not at the meeting, so i don't know if it was discussed. Btw keep up the good work AutoSport.

Don't see what the big fuss is about here.It was stated lastnite at the meeting that a DB meter would be in place for testing.Is either you pass or fail.If you fail,do some exhaust work and come back next event.


On a separate topic,do you guys think its fair to have fully stripped cars(interior,seats,etc) running in the same category as the normal daily driven ones.

And here we see a responsible response, which we appreciate. We continue to look at the bigger picture as it may affect so many others.

considering the catagories start off with engine cc and then down to times and break outs ...then yes

lets take a look

autonation full street red hatch civic - pushing what looks like about 150 / 160 whp
larry's full race prepared ignis sport - pushing 109 whp

these two cars ran almost identical times back to back

JDM_GUY..... be a little mature about this whole situation please, for you and all others who disagree with the simple rules place onto us at drag and wind, you and all others should be thankful for what the autosport committee has done for all of us by sanctioning these events and allowing us to have a fun filled family day atleast once a month, arc carpark isnt OWNED by autosport, it is RENTED, the contract i'm sure has strict rules given to the autosport body and thats why at some point they are passed onto competitors, please keep your immaturity and ignorant attitude to yourself, its simple,,,, if you dont agree with the autosport rules well then go down camden and be ttasa's beeeyotch, go let them milk your pocket with their test and tune fee's and their driving school fee's and their $300 and over raceday fee's and so forth, oh and dont forget if yuh carrying yuh family their, let them walk with their tallboots and pay their $100 to stand behind d mudfence, but in d meantime the other competitors including myself appreciates the fact that it only costs me $150 to have a day full of fun,and if i go there on sunday and my exhaust is too loud well then so be it, i'd fix it and return next month to enjoy myself,

THANK YOU AUTOSPORT , KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK

Its unfair that they dropped the news now and not at the begging of the year when competition started.
Before drag and wine it did have solodex, and they clearly have there rules printed out and handed to there competitors, not give them as they go along.

but see, this is not solodex.... things have to be adjusted as it goes along as this is a new event with new rules and no one knows how it will go. the rule for loud exhaust was always there but a few cars took it too far last event thats why it will be enforced for this event.

I downloaded a DB meter app and it seems to work fine. dunno the limitations of the microphone on my android phone... i know that apple's iphone can at least read to 100db... maybe if someone has an iphone, they can download a similar app for verification on the day ?

So when did this issue arise re the extremely loud exhaust?

"but see, this is not solodex.... things have to be adjusted as it goes along as this is a new event with new rules and no one knows how it will go. the rule for loud exhaust was always there but a few cars took it too far last event thats why it will be enforced for this event."

"Let's put it this way, man with external gated cars and side exit exhausts stay home."

Please note that at briefing on Wednesday night we had 60 entries, with several more expected on Sunday morning.

We do not have a problem with those with loud exhausts NOT taking part!

So Mr. JDM_Guy, meet those who support you down Camden on Sunday at 10:00am!

Not many people that are actually competing will be affected by this issue. We can probably count the cars affected on one hand... and any serious enthusiast can easily figure out how to get the volume down on a loud exhaust.

I doubt my car will break the 'sound barrier', but I've already bolted a silencer in my muffler...

So why all the aching poonks ?
