    There are a lot of dumb laws like this...I've fought every dumb ticket I've ever been issued in hillsborough county and had it thrown out or reduced to 3 dollars...including having blue blinking lights plainly visible from the front and rear of my vehicle...now I might just be lucky, but most judges like to think the men and women who wear badges and collect their checks from tax payers have better things to do than hassle people about looking good

    After owning the GST for over 5 years now, I got my first exhaust ticket on the way to work. I'm going to try and fight it. The statue he wrote me a ticket for is 316.610. Which states...

    Abstract: (1) Any police officer may at any time, upon reasonable cause to believe that a vehicle is unsafe or not equipped as required by law, or that its equipment is not in proper adjustment or repair, require the driver of the vehicle to stop and submit the vehicle to an inspection and such test with reference thereto as may be appropriate. (2) In the event the vehicle is found to be in unsafe condition or any required part or equipment is not present or is not in proper repair and ...

    Not sure if I have a good chance. I think I might go to Dennis Lopez or Ty Traynor. He was a motorcyle state trooper. Not sure how he heard me when I was crusing at about 30mph in traffic. But whatever. The exhaust is an Apexi N1. I thought I read somewhere on their site where it says it meets db restrictions but, I can't find it now.

    FHP was cruising the city awhile back and nailed me for not using my turning signal while changing lanes and stopped me. He said he would let the turning signal ticket slide but gave me a civil infraction for my exhaust sounding too loud while my car was idleing when he stopped me which was quiet as hell. I should have turned it off but i was going to fight it and realized the statue he gave me couldn't get it reduced after i went to my friends shop and had him print out a receipt for "exhaust leak repair" and threw on my silencer when i went over to HCSO office's. Now i know if it was to ever happen again i have the same plan in storage! In tampa i never have any cops bother looking over at me.

    I called the HCSO when I got home and the douche that I spoke with told me that any aftermarket exhaust is illegal in the state of Florida. The office I called was were I was going to take it after I got my exhaust leak fixed, since right now it sounds like I'm running open down pipe. Still up in the air what I'm going to do now. Also the same FHP that got me is the same one that got my friend 2 or 3 times within a couple months.

    Also Harleys and other bikes claim they need to be loud so that people will hear and see them coming.

    Damn they are still handing out tickets for this shit. Im not seeing as many fart cannons as i used to.
    Driving definitions: Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    From Senor Honda:
    Formed years ago, Tampa Racing.com was founded on the principles of encouraging restoration, repair or modification of special interest vehicles. Over 102,000 members strong, Tampa Racing has no national affiliation, but you will likely find its members among any number of automotive organizations including the National Street Rod Association, Mustang Club of America, Goodguys, Florida Mopar Association, Corvette Club of America, to name a few. The type of vehicles found amongst the members varies from restored early 1900's vintage automobiles, to street rods from the 30’s and 40’s, to muscle cars from the 60’s and 70’s, to present day front-wheel-drive imports and motorcycles. With the wide range of vehicles come varying degrees of modifications from bone stock to big block Pro Street monsters. There truly is something to satisfy every automotive taste.

    As with the vehicles there are varying activities that the members undertake ranging from weekly cruise nights and car meets, to cruises through the countryside, cookout get-togethers, Christmas parties, open track days, organized races, beach concerts and frequent car shows. The shows are perhaps the most popular venue for many ofthe members who engage in showing their cars at almost every opportunity. Tampa Racing also co-sponsors and/or supports select charity car shows, community events. This is a way of giving back to the local communities.
    On Tampa Racing you will always be a member of the family whether at a cruise night, car meet or on the highway.

    And remember life is good friends, a clean ride, and the open road in front of you.
