My thoughts exactly!
Anybody stupid enough to run BR Rev limiters should be banned anyway, they offer no benefit other than gauranteeing the locals get an enforcement ban on drifters from venues.
Put a bung in it & keep the venue, we have seen this soooo many times before but no one learns
Or run proper silcencers that wont totally fuck your power and spoolup, but either way, stupid amounts of noise is stupid. Loud sound and good sound are totally seperate.
Guys, went to DWYB yesterday and i didnt get asked to quiet down my car or see anybody else get told to. So they dont seem to be that strict so chill people :-)

japspeed exhaust bung/baffle to suit 4.5" tailpipe (BLITZ nur spec) NEW!!!! | eBay
Unless your car is stupidly loud you should not have a problem
Bee-R limiters, RX7s and un silenced BMWs are the main culprits
So for reference, an S14a with turbo back 3" Nur Spec should be ok?
Yup no issue what so ever
So far ive only had to have a word with 2 people in the past few months
1. Fanboy ported FD - stupid loud, BRAP, BRAP, BRAP
2. Fanboy shotgun S13 - stupid loud, BRAAAAAAAAAP
spot the trend
Neither of them had to go home either.
Usually just suggest a bit of wire wool as a short term fix and having a word with themselves about having a car that they can not use at decent track in the UK.
cheers buddy, only just bought a bmw 328i,its been done up to drift, has a straight through exhaust,this is the car i bough in link below

Hi, firstly, I know this thread is almost dead but I wanted to add my thoughts as a member of the local community.
Thank-you to those who seem to be neutral on the noise thing.
But to those who don't think we locals should ruin your fun or believe that we should have thought long and hard about the impacts of moving next to a race-track in the first place - I am 31 so yes Pod with its beginnings in 1966 far out-dates me by 14 years the trouble is as you may be aware, Pod started life as RAF Santa Pod first a grass strip for light aircraft before being upgraded to concrete for the heavies trouble is, without an RAF there would be no Pod; given the the RAF was formed on 1st April 1918 then we can pretty much say with a degree of certainty that Pod in any form does not extend beyond 1918.
Now I'm no expert but my family have owned their house from new and the inscription stone above their house stipulates the build year as 1893 so you can see that we kinda pre-date Pod in any form by some and this is true of many of the locals at least in Wollaston, Bozeat and Irchester.
I notice many of you are not locals so I find it difficult to understand how you can justify having a go at the locals who get fed-up with noise so easily, if Bubba comes each week from Stoke on a Thursday, screams around making a hell of a noise for four hours and then goes home again, then Paul does the same thing on Friday, then Shane on the Saturday, and so on and so forth, then I get it, Bubba, Paul and Shane can't understand why we locals are getting annoyed as Bubba or Paul or Shane were only doing their thing for 4 hours, but look at it from our perspective, we have to 'suffer' day in day out could you honestly say that you could happily put-up with any noise intrusions day-in day-out and still work and get on with your lives?
As you may have worked-out by now, cars don't really do it for me, they go from A-to-B thats it oh, and they don't go nearly fast enough; my hobby is far louder and faster, could you guys put-up with living close to an operational RAF station? Living next to the Vulcan especially when it takes-off, maybe the Reds all nine taking-off at once, or maybe even 6 or 7 Tornados? Now they are loud but most stations are also restricted on their flight-times and practices and are only allowed one air-show per year? Could you deal with that? We still have to toe-the-line in our hobbies but we respect that our likes are not to everyone else' tastes we just get on with it without complaint.
On a final note, maybe look at it from a different perspective, would you be happy having travelers turn-up out of the blue on your doorstep, would you welcome them with open arms, pat them on the back and be happy to let them get on with trashing your area without paying tax - stereo-typical I know and I don't mean to cause offence.
So really, when you consider what it is we do put-up with: traffic to and from the site, general event noise, drift noise, users flying down the dead-straight road from Pod to Bozeat, etc frankly, I think we are quite lean; and in my opinion, you guys have it easy, there is a reason why Nemesis was built in the caverns and Oblivion no longer announces "Don't Look Down" before the drop, all the rides must be below the tree-line and too much screaming and general ride-noise could get Alton Towers shut down.
I'm sorry if this seems like a bit of a rant and thank-you for reading this far if indeed you did but I really feel that those who believe that the locals should butt-out and leave you to have your fun [after all, you have spent countless hours preparing and large amounts of cash to have it], I would really like you to look at it from our point of view too and accept even if you can't understand that the noise does grate on us - not that I am asking you to stop having fun just don't be getting on your high-horse about it if we mention the noise.
Oh, and don't forget that Hinwick Hall is actually an old folks home...
My car is 80db with valve closed and 110 with it open , but it fires into the ground so its not loud for miles , but I loose torque with it open , so it generally stays shut.
You can hear pod clear as day in Harrold on a DWYB day , so please please make your cars less anti-social.
Annoys me hearing 328 and 325's with no boxes as they LOOSE masses of driveability like this as well as sounding shite.
I dont see why cars have to be that loud. an integra drove past me at work today it sounded shit, bring an extra box or a bung!! Is exhaust noise an issue here or tyre noise?
Do you hear exhaust noise or tyre squeel?
Id happily silence mine to stock if it keeps pod open.
See you all wednesday S13 running a CA 3"turbo back. will have my bung incase its needed
I'd agree with above statement, having lived opposite an industrial rail line with 14 seprate lines running millions of tons of cargo day and night 365 days a year. However, I lived on a 8th floor apartment, 200yards from the lines without the benefit of double glazing... Infact most of the time the windows were open because it was 40'or more centigrade outside with 100% humidity.
Living a few miles away from a few screeches and brum brum noises seems like bliss by comparison. I've also lived in Silverstone village and experienced the noise from the circuit... Unless you sit in your back garden all day doing nothing, even the F1 cars are less than bothersome.
What you are suffering from my friend, is 1st world problems. Santa pod, in my opinion, does a fantastic job of keeping young drivers and drivers wanting to gain more experience off the streets and in marshalled, safe environments.
Noise limits are understandable, but they are the first small step in having places shut down. So a venue that services hundreds of thousands, boosts the local economy and provides jobs, to allow..?
In Bozeat and Wollaston I can only hear exhaust noise.
To Mitto - Silverstone is not a hindrance, like my airshows, the only big noise-maker is the F1 which is once per year which is more than acceptable; and very sorry to point-out but you are being subjective with statements of "few screeches and brum brum noises seems like bliss by comparison" this is you, for me, I work both from home, in Central London and MK so being home is supposed to be peaceful - I currently live in Bozeat and can still hear the sounds behind tripple-glazed windows.
Anyway, I wasn't really posting about me, I can deal with it but rather was trying to offer another point of view and to clear-up any misconception that we locals have nothing better to do than complain - sure there shall be Victor Meldrew's in all villages: despite our family being present in Wollaston for all these years, I still remember my Mum getting-up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning to open the curtains before returning back for a lay-in because if she didn't the villagers would talk - these types are the ones who complain largely over nothing; it is widely known that Scott Barder largely pays-off the village with outings and use of their clubs and money being ploughed into the village.
And on the trains, with so much movement, I'd be surprised if you gradually didn't hear the noise as you got used to it like the hum of motorways or general train lines like most of the guys in London but for me, the noise is a bit like the dog that has been shut-out all day and is barking in the garden, or the neighbour who has gone away to Lanzarote but their house-alarm went-off yesterday and no-one has managed to silence it.
As I said in my previous post, I don't want anyone to think I am trying to spoil anyone else's fun, and I am on board with the young drivers / drivers wanting more experience statement, I just want there to be a little more consideration.
Can't argue with that. Of course your points are very valid. The problem from our side, is that noise issues are leading to the demise of race circuits and motorsports clubs all over the country. I've been fortunate to travel all over the world and pursue my little drifting dream, but have never felt as restricted, frowned upon and ostracised as I do in the UK.
Whilst I can accept, understand and sympathise with your reasoning, I just cannot fathom it.
I wrote out a super long post but its a waste of words.
We live in a country that a few people on a 3 year old newly built housing estate almost a mile away can complain that a 300 year old stunning church ringing the bells at certain times which as far as I know has never been a problem before in the 300 years but now they can only ring the bells 5 times a year on special festive times even tho the rest of the village wanted the bells to continue....
arcticsponge sometimes the old saying better the devil you know than the devil you don't is spot on. I'm sure santa pod is only putting more days on to stay a float. What you should have a think about is what happens if pod shut downs? what will happen to the land?
