    Question Muffler/silencer?

    Heya,

    I was reading a thread on bcp.org, and it got me thinking if the Carbon Cub has a muffler/silencer in-line the exhaust (or perhaps an add-on at the end)?

    In the case of there being different "versions" to different markets, I'm particularly interested in the Oz version and the EU version (in that order).


    Thanks in advance

    I get Bellarmine College Prep at bcp.org...

    So far, all CCs have the same exhaust system. Its a "4 into 1" type, no muffler/silencer but tuned length with a collector on the end.

    Thanks a bunch, Pete. I was just wondering.


    When I wrote "bcp.org" it was shorthand for "backcountrypilot.org. It's just that in my bookmarks it says "BCP" so I can have more bookmarks up there. It won't happen again, ha, ha!

    I believe Vetterman Exhaust has just released an exhaust system for the Carbon Cub with mufflers.

    Default Muffler/silencer?

    Just Curious why one would want to put a muffler on the carbon cub exhaust?

    To not make too much noise that people could complain about.

    Yes, I live in the EU (Denmark), and I'm currently contemplating whether I should register a plane here in Denmark, somewhere else in the EU, or Australia. Both places, but mostly EU, seem rather "sensitive" when it comes to noise. Personally, I don't mind something less noisy. I don't believe in the "loud exhausts save lives" as a fraction of the motorcycle community believes.

    Not that it's that important, but those are the reasons I was wondering. I haven't made a decision yet, and I probably won't until after I have placed the order - or, more realistically; after I have had it for a while.

    I've installed the Vetterman muffled system and have a few hours on it now. It is a neat system with a greater cabin and carb heat output. My static RPM and WOT cruise RPM numbers are identical. They are 2520 and 2800.

    It makes less noise too. Net weight gain is about 2 pounds.
