    this is my GT500 getting reviewed for the Smoking Tire one take YouTube series. The car impressed! Zack scared the hell out of me driving this thing- AND we got pulled over and guess who forgot to renew his registration while my car was grounded this spring with electrical issues?

    Enjoy friends!

    Zack gave you an awesome review...I could tell he enjoyed driving your car!...The Cop stop was a bummer, but could have been a lot worse.....I also run my Boss with no front plate and my exhaust is louder than yours........I should count my blessings................BTW...what's with the bike on the roof??????...I know...more down force....;):rolleyes:

    HAHA Great video. The cops were very generous in that situation.

    Smoking Tire was almost Smoking Gun ----- agree that it was almost a win as the Cops were major generous. Been there with the DOT Comp Tires myself and great restraint as one wants to explain their error , but just not the right time, ha, ha. Good luck and thanks for the post --- registered now , but what is the crazy new law on the exhaust in Cali????

    NT-01s have been questioned on my car also. DOT approved but not recommended for street use.

    don't be rustling through the glove box or console when the cops are walking up...pro tip.
    I like the guy in the passenger seat, debating with the officer when the guy driving is going to eat the ticket..lol.
    Don't try any of that down south.
    Lucky those cops were cool about it

    I heard the podcast the day after, it’s a good listen. Hats off to the cops for not going for full enforcement.

    If you are upright and polite to LE they will in most cases return the favor...there are exceptions to the rule, so be ware.

    My experience also. A calm discussion followed by an agreement to change your ways or change your equipment has saved me embarrassment and cash over the years. Allegedly
