Wow! Glad you're OK - that could have been a lot worse.

When a passenger of the foot moves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously to him at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth the warning, "Hi, hi."

Looks like the standard mufflers were rubbing / touching against the plastic number plate holder. The bolt that holds the muffler to the subframe was possibly loose and making the mufflers touch the plastic number plate holder.

The standard mufflers traps ALOT of heat due to the chamber design. The output of the cat also adds additional heat (cat requires heat to operate properly).

If you mod the standard mufflers you will reduce the heat trap and you'll be able hold and touch the mufflers after a hot run.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
