Because of the 5 inch frame Clearance There's no room to run an exhaust underneath the frame. We may have to turn out a side exhaust, And tell the ol lady not to breathe at Stoplights. I'm sure that's going to go over like a turd in the punch bowl.

I wish some of the guys that of actually done demos in this thing, Would chime in and let us know if they had any issues

I think something running at a diagonal down the side (matching the tub) and exiting just aft of the tub would be cool if the heat shield was kinda angular like the car itself. Sort of like a new style Cobra.

I'm not worried if I drive, the problem is stuck in traffic or go downtown in Montréal for fun...
This may be an unnecessary concern but its strange to see the exhaust pipe ahead!

The exhaust exit was my first concern too when I first saw the pic. I'm glad others had a concern too. While I would like to run on the open road, I know there will be plenty of times I will be stationary with engine running. I work construction equipment all of which put exhaust right out by the person operating it and I can tell you it gets hot and nasty fumes all day. Any thing to get the exhaust behind passengers would seem to make sense for health and fatigue wise.

The exhaust isn't a big issue. Yes you might smell a little bit stopped but not nearly as bad as you might think. Now if you go revving your engine at a stop your passenger might get a little warm and crinkle their nose...

Are there any 6"oval exhaust pipes to run under the cockpit and exit at the rear? Oval will aid in the minimal clearance.
