Those tall exhaust found on Kaido Racers and other Bosozoku-inspired cars have a name: Takeyari. Now you know.

This would make for a great RadWood build.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but does the length of the exhaust affect power output in something like this?

We now know what some of the long term effects of radiation exposure might be.

I love everything about these builds and no one can stop me.

In a not-so-subtle nod to takeyari, I angled the tips up and out when I was building the exhaust for the LS.

In reply to RevRico :it's just fashion and likely sends the noise farther, Bozo's are all about flash and being anti-social, their greatest joy is keeping decent people awake at night.  Groups of bozos would cruise my wife's neighborhood in the suburbs revving engines in neutral as they fly down the street just to bother people, I was tempted to sit out at night with a hose and spray them as they went by.  Shockingly loud and obnoxious!  My wife says the name seems to harken a long bamboo shaft with a blade on the end like a spear.
