has anyone considered modifying the fuel tank configuration? its a legal DSP mod (which im trying to stay in so i can win :) ) i could get a smaller one, and move it lower (maybe), but more importantly, further forward in the chassis. that would move that heavy gas more toward the middle of the car, improving the CG. maybe you could even get a lighter, better one that keeps the gas from sloshing so much... any thoughts?

a fuel cell would probably do all of those things, i think they cost around $500.

do a google search for a company called "Fuel Safe." at least i think that's the name of em.......i dunno.

on second though, do a search for Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies, and see what they have.

Be sure to read the rule book carefully before you buy a fuel cell. It cannot be over 20% less in volume than the original tank. It must be mounted in the stock location within 6 inches and must meet the GCR guidelines for roll over protection. And your car must have a fire extinguisher. Fuel cells can be cheap or very expensive. The plastic drag race cells like in Jegs are under $200 or you could get an ATL with a rubber bladder for several hundred.

Hope this helps
