I am re-routing the lines on my fire bottles and would like to install a short flexible line between the bottles and the hard lines mounted to the frame. Is there any problem with this?

Also, is there any source of specific guidance with respect to the location of the nozzles?  The rule book is not specific on this point.

Thanks

When it comes to safety and the rules not clearly stated I think it comes down to what risk you are willing to accept for safety. As it is not my butt in the seat I would not dare make a recommendation to a safety decision for you. What I would do if it were my butt in the seat is call the safety company that provided the bottles and ask for their expert opinion. That way I have something documented in writing from them rather than a recommendation from a forum member(s) if the excrement does hit the rotating air displacement device. Sorry kind of a weird response, but IMHO your asking something different than "can I run 90% in my yugo motor". grin

The answer is an unqualified YES.

The next question is:  How long can I expect my motor to take to return to earth after I hit the throttle? huh

First off I will almost always say yes to adding more pop.

Hopefully I am not out of line with my response but I think as forum members we take a certain risk when we give advice on critical safety decisions unless what we see is an obvious danger to the person asking the question and/or are a certified expert in that area.

The answer to your last question is air density will come into play but I'm thinking 30-35 seconds
