Switching to a different tuned pipe and adding an exhaust deflector should make it somewhat quieter...

Unless you're running it very early in the morning or late at night though i don't see the problem. I'd get in contact with your local council to see what they have to say on the matter...

Throw the Savage in your car and take it to a secluded bash spot somewhere nearby.

I rarely run my cars around my house out of respect for my neighbors since they in turn keep quiet for me aka Golden Rule.

I wouldnt worry about it. I run my trucks up and down my road all the time. There is a cop that lives down my road. Once i was driving my aftershock and he stopped and was asking about it and he said he will get his radar gun out and see how fast it goes.
I dont see the problem with running them around others, just not at night or early in the morning.

Next time you see your neighbors have a good time, just ask them to stop. I run my trucks around the neighborhood somtimes and it's not a problem, most people are curious and stop to ask questions.

respect the neighbors, they can make you miserable... Trust me, I have one that is a complete lunatic!! If they complain, try to work something out with them. No doubt Nitro trucks are loud, and can be very annoying if you are not the one having a good time with them. Look at it from their point of view.

as long as you are running it in the day time your neighbors really cant do much more than call the cops and even then all the cop can do is ask you to stop

my neighbors called the cops on me and the cop thought my gst 7.7 (louder than a savage) was cool and told me that as long as i dont run it in their yard, late at night, or early in the morning i was fine, so he went and said something to my neighbors. now all they do is glare at me when i run it! heck my other nieghbors come out and talk to me and watch when i run it, they think its cool

anyway its just like someone mowing the lawn, you should go to your neighbors house and talk to them about it and see if you can work something out, that is unless they are like my neighbors and will do nothing but argue

wow.... its amazing, the maturity of this thread...

And I must say I am impressed by the "potato in the tailpipe" thing...... ummmm I am assuming you drive a nitro vehicle, and if I am right , then you KNOW the truck WILL NOT start with an obstruction in the pipe... What makes you think a car will start with no exhaust flow??

Just wait til your neighbor shows up with that stupid dog that never stops barking, and the cops come to you (after you called) and say... "sorry, its daytime, nothing we can do, have a SUPER day"

I've had to delete several posts as they are suggesting illegal activities.

When it comes to this hobby, use some common sense. Rushevoracer (the thread starter) asked if there were any inexpensive methods to reduce the engine noise, NOT annoy or get even with the neighbor. Let's stick to the actual topic and provide quality suggestions.

Many nitro boat racers use mufflers attached to the stinger on their tuned pipes like this one:



http://www.rumracingproducts.com

They sell for $20-$25. Some "tweaking" would be required to fit it on your Savage, but it will quiet it down dramatically.

A silicone coupler such as http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFUE8&P=7 should do the trick in mating them up.

I only run mine out front during the day. No complaints. And if anyone does, I'll just go mow the lawn, which is a lot louder. :P

I have the same problem with my neighbour!!!!!!!!!!!!

She hates anything loud and as she never liked my family since we moved in. I use my t-maxx to annoy her but only during daytime!!!!

All the rest of my neighbor's love my car and ask alot of questions.

My advice would be that just ignore them and have fun!!!!!

what he meant by the potato in the tailpipe is put it in a real car, not a nitro rc, not trying to be a smart@$$ or nothing
