One system exits at the rear through Borla mufflers, the other at the side of the car just ahead of the rear wheels via a console controlled switch.

At the rear , mini-tubs can accommpdate even larger tires or drag slicks if desired.The interior remains stock except for a 8.50 certified roll cage, a digital dash with speedometer calibrated by GPS so it remains accurate regardless of gearing or tire size. The exterior is stock except for a cowl hood.
