Jb, in lies the issue, the ECTA rules have no specifications to build too. Just what I quoted at the start. I'll build it as tight and right as I can based on how I have to interpet the rules and hope it passes tech. at Maxton to get the wife some seat time.

Just curious why do you want to run the fuel cell inside the car?  If you removed the stock tank, the cavity created would act like a parachute at high speed.  Why not fabricate a tank to fit in that space and shape it to give you an advantage?  Tony

Tony, the stock tank was removed to facilitate installation of part of the roll cage. With the installation of the cage support cross member the stock tank would not fit. So after rereading the rule book again smiley we decided to mount it in the luggage well and cover it. Currently we don't have time to do what you suggest.we are trying to get the car to Maxton in a couple of weeks so it can go through tech and maybe some shake down runs as this is a new build for us and my wife needs some seat time before we head to Ohio next year. your idea to fab a tank to fit that space occurred to me yesterday although I did not consider that the void left from the stock tank would have that much effect on the car. I learn something every time I read this forum. thanks for the input.
