I thought that "closed course only" didn't need a SA, but "offroad only" usually meant it had an approved SA.

Wings Payment

Here is what I got back from Gorazd (Wings) after putting my order about 1AM EST today.

thank you for your order. I just want to inform you that now we are using FeDex instead of ordinary mail( we were not satisfied with the service ) and the shipping costs are now 65,- USD- I hope you don't mind.
I will gladly send you a Paypal money request for total sum 423,- USD ( 342,- + 65,- =407,- + 4% paypal fee=423,-).
I will notify you after receiving the payment. Please send me your shipping address and your phone number.
Best regards,
Gorazd Marovic

This is for the can with the carbon end-cap.

Hope this helps Counselor 1 and all.

Anybody repack their Akra exhaust yet? I've had mine done but for some reason the stainless band that wraps around fits rather loosely and not tight like it was originally. Any thoughts/ideas? My dealer did this and not me. Only noticed a few weeks after.

Did he use the proper gas tight rivets? Noyah reported that his is loosening up all the time, too.

Wings short quick delivery

Gorazd notified me he received PayPal payment on Friday and shipped via fedEx same day. Slovenia to USA over the weekend. At my door Monday morning. Amazing.

Given that the original is next to worthless secondhand, I'm wondering if anyone has ever opened up the factory exhaust to see what the internals look like?
