exhaust temps in buggys?

what do you guys that are building buggys doing about exhaust?.
The way mine is ran, its right under my feet, and with expanded metal floor. I'm pretty sure its going to be damn hot.
would exhaust wrap work to keep the heat down? my main concern about using wrap is how long is it going to last with water, mud, etc? Or is there something better to use other than exhaust wrap?

I would definatly opt for a heat shield of some sort, they make a HUGE difference, just use some thin sheet metal and roll it leaving about 1" gap around the pipe and weld some small 1 1/2 long bolts to the pipe, drill holes in the sheet metal and put a stopper nut on the bottom and another on top to hold it in place
