I don’t know cars but answering for a friend the way he explained it. Slight performance benefit. Essential in competitions. Helps with timing shifting. Useful in competitions. Sounds cool. Is not essential for competition but crowds like it. Also some girls do like it which is the only reason some guys need. But also, it’s like a bird call so people into drifting, racing can find each other. My friend doesn’t have a loud car because it’s annoying to others, but we both appreciate the subtle information in the sound of a loud car. tl;dr car goes brr

I’m on the spectrum and sensitive to noise. I also live beside the main road. I end up just wearing ear plugs day in and day out, I can’t handle the damn noise. Loud stereos too. I just don’t get how someone can be like “it’s just an interest of mine” like it’s casual but everyone around them has to put up with it. It’s just obnoxious and sort of oblivious.
