Ok, well not really. Just a story from tonight.
The exhaust on my car has been messed up for a while now, i just haven't gotten around to fixing it. I'm pretty sure most of the problems arose from a broken hanger that I was just too lazy to fix.
Anyways, my buddy Max has one of the worst driveways you'll ever encounter. If your car is lowered, don't even think about it. So as I'm pulling into his driveway, I'm thinking, "Man, this is a horrible idea... I hate this driveway!" But I thought I'd be a polite friend and give door to bar service... Anyways, as I'm almost at the summit of this god awful driveway entrance, I hear a metal on pavement scrape, and then a very, very loud exhaust sound... I had officially become a r!cer... The exhaust separated in the middle, after the cat but before the resonator... I was able to get under there and stick it back in after it cooled down a bit, but it fell out again as I pulled into my own not so perfect driveway. Just thought I'd post my sob story...

My tailpipe fell off, at the muffler. You would be surprised at how important that 2 ft section of pipe is. With the hole in the cat flange, it sounds like an old Mustang.

I have done it, both on accident on purpose, but it doesnt sound like a rice burner. Just a 4 banger with out an exhaust. What kind of exhaust are the rice guys rockin wher you live?
