THE KNOWLEGDE

Japanese Performance - - THE GARAGE -

NOISE, VI­BRA­TION, HARSHNESS – OTH­ER­WISE KNOWN AS NVH – IS BA­SI­CALLY A PROB­LEM OF UN­WANTED EN­ERGY. THE DRONE OF YOUR EX­HAUST OR VI­BRA­TION FROM YOUR UP­RATED ENGINE MOUNTS GETS TRANS­FERRED TO YOUR CAR’S METAL PAN­ELS WHICH RES­ONATE AND CON­VERT THE EN­ERGY INTO UN­WANTED SOUND. YOUR CAR WILL HAVE SOME FORM OF SOUND DEAD­EN­ING AP­PLIED AT THE FAC­TORY, WHICH IS FINE IN STAN­DARD TRIM, BUT OUT OF ITS DEPTH ONCE YOU START TUN­ING. AND WHILE MANY A DED­I­CATED TRACK CAR FAN WILL EXTOLL

THE BEN­E­FITS OF RE­MOV­ING ALL FORMS OF SOUND DEAD­EN­ING IN THE QUEST FOR MAX­I­MUM LIGHT­NESS, IN A ROAD CAR THE IN­CREASE IN

NOISE AND VI­BRA­TION IS HARDER TO LIVE WITH. THIS IS WHERE DY­NA­MAT COMES IN. DY­NA­MAT IS A SU­PER EF­FEC­TIVE SOUND DEAD­EN­ING MA­TE­RIAL (MADE FROM A SPE­CIAL BUTYL RUB­BER AND SHEET ALU­MINIUM) THAT COMES IN SHEETS WHICH YOU THEN AP­PLY TO YOUR CAR’S PAN­ELS TO ELIM­I­NATE UN­WANTED NOISE. THIS NOT ONLY RE­DUCES THE LEV­ELS OF NVH IN THE CAR, BUT ALSO HAS THE ADDED BEN­E­FIT OF IM­PROV­ING THE PER­FOR­MANCE OF YOUR IN-CAR AU­DIO SYS­TEM. WIN-WIN!

WE WENT FOR TWO PACKS OF DY­NA­MAT XTREME, WHICH IS 1.7MM THICK AND COMES IN 18X32IN, MOULDABLE, SELF-AD­HE­SIVE SHEETS. ALTHOUGH FOR THE MORE WEIGHT CON­SCIOUS THERE IS A LIGHT­WEIGHT AL­TER­NA­TIVE CALLED DY­NA­MAT SUPERLITE, WHICH IS JUST 1.2MM THICK, YET POS­SESSES MUCH OF THE SAME ABIL­I­TIES AS ITS THICKER BROTHER. YOU SIM­PLY RE­MOVE THE PAPER BACK­ING AND STICK DOWN TO YOUR CAR’S CLEANED AND DEGREASED PAN­ELS WITH A RUB­BER ROLLER. EASY!

WE USED 18 SHEETS OF DY­NA­MAT XTREME WHICH NOT ONLY RE­DUCES EX­HAUST BOOM AND VI­BRA­TION, BUT ALSO IM­PROVES AU­DIO PER­FOR­MANCE!
