DTM: Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters
(Just Ze Tip, Bitte)
I never thought I'd ever install DTM style exhaust tips on any of my vehicles since they were popularly prevalent on European cars. But now the concept makes more sense. DTM are touring cars with extensive aero. The early cars had exhaust tips turned up which create a low pressure zone behind the car to eliminate recirculation pockets and lessen drag.
The center of the Verus Engineering rear diffuser has an aggressive upsweep, while the left and right flanks do not. High pressure air will always find the path of least resistance. The angled exhaust flow will pull the expanding high pressure air exiting the diffuser up and further away from the car.
Also, Newton's Third Law applies in theory with the exhaust gases angled upwards as the opposing forces exerted will press the car down for more traction. How much force? We're talking ounces, maybe. However ounces can lead to the nearest pound. Every little bit helps but on the real, it's hardly minuscule to even think about. 😂
Gone are both Nameless 3" tips in exchange for a pair of larger no-name (nameless??) 3.5" stainless steel DTM quad tips that are tightly cinched on with T-bolt clamps and high temp sleeve sealant, to serve not only for function but for aesthetics to fill up the open area, since the Nameless tips looked tiny after the bumper mod. Even with the rearmost exhaust hangers missing, the axlebacks remain sturdy due to three Cobb exhaust hangers installed forward of the quad tips.
