I took my axle back off and drove around for a little once, sounded bad azz. Didn't seem to cause any problems other then noise...I would do it again if I didn't have exhaust on my car.

It's not that bad for short periods of time, but you are dumping a lot of heat and fumes onto the underside of your car and it could melt or burn something very badly after a long time. If you want the sound, remove the muffler and get someone to fabricate straight through pipes for you, so that the hot gas still leaves the back of the car safely. Just a sidenote.....you WILL get pulled over if you are that loud, running with no muffler is a HUGE cop magnet.
