Aussie stacks...straight back or angled?

Ok guys. Its going to happen sooner or later, but I have to get those new Aussie stacks from Grand Rock. So, monday I'm going to order them. The only thing I can't decide on is lining them up. Straight back or angle them out the sides slightly?

I brought that up in a thread we had on them yesterday and here is what Josh told me -

"the stacks are for when he wants to race or pull. The over axel part of the kit is so the wife and kids don't complain the stacks are too loud... He has a diverter tube under the truck that allows him to run either exhaust exits..."

As far as your question goes Pat I vote straight back. I told my wife yesterday I was going to get them myself but now I'm backing off to do some more research. I'm hooked on the ones that guy has on his but I never considered the noise factor and my rig is loud as it is - maybe I'll do something similar to this guy in the picture. On a long trip I could see that the noise may be a bit much for the wife and kids especially with the stacks right behind their heads. I think I'd cut my over the axle off under the rig and turn it down. That way I could use it on trips and it wouldn't be seen.

With the strait pipe turned down in front of the axle the drone will drive you mad, when i deleted my muffler a couple months ago i took the muffler and tail pipe off and ran it like that a couple days, horrable drone, went to the parts store and bought a 4'' 45 degree angle to cut off and make a turn down, it didnt help.
