    I ran an event there on the weekend. The track is really nice.

    However they do noise test on all cars. Cars must not go over 103db's from rear or side when reving to within 1000 rpm of redline.

    Was really surprised since I've never seen this actually done.

      Hmmm... I was there this summer and they didn't noise test me. Wonder if it was because I was late and they didn't test the late comers? I wonder if showing up late is the work-around? I am no where neat the limit BTW.

        TMP indicated their limit is 102 db, although our SoloSprint rules allow a maximum of 95db for non modified cars and 98db for Modified cars at SMP and 92 at Mosport DDT for all cars.

        The TMP noise levels may be stricter because they test at 5 meters from all sides of a car.

        TMP will be testing all cars before you can get on the track on each of the three days (Lapping, SoloSprint), so please allow extra time for the tests.

          Anyone have the equipment to test this ahead of time? For those that have heard my SoloSprint car will it be an issue?

          Last thing I want to do is drive out there to find out I can't compete.

            I don't know of anyone in GTA.

            Maybe it is better to be safe than sorry. Put a good muffler and maybe a resonantor on it and you should be OK.

              I'm not going to spend money to modify my car for one event in the year.

              If I can't be sure I'm going to withdraw my entry from the event all together. I can't afford to spend the money on gas for towing or the entry fees only to not be able to compete.

                Sorry Brain, that you are considering to miss two out of nine events, but we don't have any leeway on this issue.

                TMP can't afford to lose there Road Course license so they are testing all cars at the track every day. They will also be watching for loud cars during the day in case somebody decides to disconnect their exhaust after being tested. TMP probably couldn't obtain a license renewal for a number of years if they abuse their privileges. They are taking this very seriously so we have to also.

                  When I was there last month there was a couple cars that were pretty loud and still running on the track. Infact Judd wasn't aloud to run his Pntiac Accadain(chevy II) there was a modified Porsche 996 I think that was pretty loud still running so I am hopefully there wont be any troubles. I don't really think anyone here should have any trouble. Also I could hear cars on the road leading to the drag strip that all of the houses are on.

                    You can buy the testers at Radio Shack (the source now, I guess). Just buy it, test your car, and return it.

                    Or maybe CASC could invest in one?

                        For reference, the 91 with open exhaust was 110dB from ~5m. That was pretty loud.

                        FYI, if your car "cackles" when you lift you may be in trouble. It's not just sustained dB.

                          Some time ago, when we last ran at TMP (we old-timers remember this stuff) Kenny Lau was banned from the event due to noise. Now he was running a full race engine in a highly modified Acura, and it was seriously loud. The engine subsequently grenaded, I think at the last event.
                          Anyhow, there is a precedent for refusing to allow competitors on the track. My impression was that the measurement process was somewhat less than scientific

                            What's your rules on convertables?

                            Are you allowing S2000's to run?

                            If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

                              Sure, with proper roll over protection (specified in the SoloSprint rule book).
