Very loud REX - does a Motor Bike Silencer work?

walking around with the i3 Rex running, the motorbike engine is certainly loud enough to draw attention and annoy.
If one drives past me, I would look around expecting what noisy bike.
It would be interesting to know if anyone has researched into, or tried out fitting it with a suitable motorbike exhaust Silencer?

Were you able to try a different REx car? I suspect the first one had a problem.

I note , they are all noisy ( outside the vehicle) so, it would be perfect if a silencer can work.

The REx already has a muffler/silencer on it, this is a picture of it.

Thanks Smilies
It would appear that the I3 silencer is inadequate or the exhaust design is too
cramped into a tiny space for an efficient sound reducer

Here is something which might be worth looking into

A Silencer Insert : attached or inserted in to the end of the exhaust pipe
pretty much similar idea as firearms sound suppressor. muffing muzzle noise
could work?
