I agree that they are all pricey. The most important part to me was not having to do cut up my car and add another $1500 in fab costs. Just to be clear this uses the stock tank, so we’re able to have a total of 22gal.Makes me not feel so bad about $3400 for 23 gallons for an xx.
Are these kits for 2-seaters only?Looks nice and safe as well. Both norra can ams had issues w rear mounted cells.
Is that the one from Magnum?Are these kits for 2-seaters only?
Our 4-seat X3 with a 26 gallon rear mounted cell ran flawlessly at this years NORRA. Our setup uses a factory fuel pump and the factory dash gauge works too (mostly). We kept the front tank as well as a backup but never needed it. Range anxiety was completely eliminated this year which made driving the 200 mile special sections a piece of cake.
It's a Harmon cell and the mounts were built in house by Matt C and Jeff O. We could never get a straight answer from Magnum on the mounting kit and related parts availability and we were running out of time so we had to build our own. It came out nice and clean.Is that the one from Magnum?
That's what the bladder is for. Could the rear tubes crush the fuel cell? Absolutely and that's why the bladder is so important. The NASCAR elite routinely hit a wall traveling backwards at over 150mph and in most cases the bladder does its job and contains the fuel... even when the entire rear of the car is completely crushed.Not that anything i do is so awesome but that cell scares me. Damned little to keep it from being crushed. Rear tubes on our norra car mounted to link plate same way got crushed into links binding all up. Maybe i am just paranoid
