Zetec Rally exhaust

Hey all,

When Troy and I were cruising along the Great Ocean Road on Sunday, I decided to stop over and record the rather feral sound of my exhaust from behind the car on my new phone which is much clearer than my last phone. I have also recorded a few videos inside the car accelerating at night in on a highway onramp in the wet. I will post these within 24 hours, as I can't do it at work (no access to my webpage for some reason). You require Apple Quicktime (a 20mb download) to view/listen and I will add more if I get around to it, if people request certain things to hear. I'm proud and I want to share it with everyone even if I can't pull out a digital camera just yet like Timmeh!!

Re: Zetec Rally exhaust

Tell you what mate, if when I finally get a decent exhaust on my Escort it sounds even half as good as your Focus (particularly if I also don't have "highway drone"), I'll be one very happy man!

Hehehe, thanks mate, it was interesting to see the differences between the old-school Mk II Escort and the new-school Focus. After being in a Focus being driven in a 'spirited' manner , I have to say that the Focus definately feels like the spiritual sucessor to the Escort.

My Escort might have the potential ot be a beast when it's complete, but I've got to say, your Focus is already a beast mate, if I was going to buy a new car, I have no doubt at all I'd be getting a Focus, and wanting to do the mods you've done, it seemed to love the GOR just as much as we did!

Re: Zetec Rally exhaust

20 MB is huge for a sound file! Croikey! Spare us dialup type people the pain and use Windows Movie Maker or soemthing to make it smaller, please! Even my video was only 4MB with sound!

Thanks :p

Wouldn't he mean that the download for Quicktime is 20Mb? Call me stupid if you want (hey, why not, I can take a joke :p), but that's the way I read it.

Re: Zetec Rally exhaust

Here they are!!! Remember y'all need Apple Quicktime to View/Hear them. Apologies for the tiny size/quality of the videos, Nokia phones are not meant to record DVD quality (yet!!)

1. Hitting the highway at night on the onramp, inside with windows closed, in the wet (hence the traction control flashing from 2nd to 3rd gear)

2. Running a 0-100 on the same onramp (it was late at night)

3. THE RALLY EXHAUST!!!!!!! Recorded by Troy and myself on the Great Ocean Road
