Unicorns are some noisy bastards!!

So I went to my warehouse area and had my wife take some dB readings while I went past WFO (actually she was a couple feet before my rev limiter would kick in). She was about 2 meters away holding the meter at waist level 90 degrees from me.

I was getting about 116 dB. 108 was my quietest. Idling and AMA test I am under 98.

Should I be concerned about Norway?

Hmmm, well we will have to see. We take our readings from about 20-30 feet away on the front straight.

if you're at 98 for the AMA test, you might not be way over the on track limit.
short shifting down the straights makes a big difference in noise output, and not a whole lot of difference in lap times.

Will do. I'm not sure if a DBdawg is going to work for me or not. I've never seen one in person so I am not sure it's going to fit. We shall see.

Short shift king...
