Clanging noise during hard driving

Did my first track session yesterday and all went beyond expectations... The Boss is FAST! :D Only had to give way to a Porsche 997 GT3 RS and a Corvette C6 Z06... I guess that can be expected :)

Unfortunately, I experienced a clanging/hammering noise from beneath the car after 3-4 minutes of hard driving. I believe it's the exhaust vibrating against the bottom plate when driving over uneven ground. It goes away as soon as the car cools down.

Any ideas and/or similar experience from you seasoned Boss racers?

Maybe it isn't it, but I had a banging sound after I removed the side exhaust discs. You can loosen up the side exhaust and try moving it around a bit. Look for marks on the paint, that is how I figured out which one it was and where it was too close to the chassis.

Winter/Grant, thanks for the input. I'll lift it and look for marks where the exhaust may have rattled against the plate. I did remove the baffles a few months ago, could be that something happened then...

That's why I couldn't keep up with that vette! Felt like I was towing a freight train sideways :D
