Not exactly sure how mine look, probably as bad as the outside of my pipe. I expect that if it was still in place after the hit it would probably have a bow back towards the dent with the way the ice freezes.
Given they are hard to inspect/fix, its a trade off between a potential performance lose due to a bent baffle and the cost of getting a new pipe.
Given that was my first season of racing and i was still running at the back of the pack i was happy to take the performance lose than ask my sponsor (visa) for a new pipe.
