Looks like too much unburnt fuel in the cat. Is it possible to run a cat successfully with a race cam and carbs?

Are the emissions actually checked to see if the cat is working, or could you loose the innards of the cat and move it further away from the tail pipe so a scrutineer can't see that the guts are missing?

When I saw this I immediately thought “now that’s hot, Batman!” Looks like the old jet at the back of the original batmobile!
