The Racing Beat MX-5 ND Race/Sport Exhaust System is a lightweight exhaust system that is intended for race applications. Designed to meet the demands of autocross/circuit racers, this system is significantly lighter than the stock system.
The Racing Beat Race Exhaust System has been designed to offer a significant weight reduction over the stock MX5 ND system, compare the following:
Stock system = 20.5 lbs
Racing Beat Race Muffler = 13.75 lbs
This is a 33% reduction in weight over the stock system!
While louder than the stock system, particularly under full throttle, this exhaust system can be used for those looking for a very aggressive exhaust tone for their daily-driven MX5 ND. A modest driving technique will produce a moderate and tolerable exhaust tone, but jump on the throttle and this exhaust really comes to life. Full throttle does not produce a buzzy or harsh, but a more exotic sound of a tuned engine.
During a long-distance trip to the race track during prototype testing for this system, our independent test driver commented that highway cruising was very tolerable, without any droning sounds or harmonics.
