ive seen hydramat work...it’s pretty amazing stuff.

foam helps a little with sloshing but not an end all be all...

in in my old fuel cell I can cut the foam and place it around the perimeter of my tank with the middle open and exposed. Cutting it slightly larger and interlocking with other pieces will keep it in place.

good luck with this! Looking forward to seeing the results...

The problem with the OEM tank has a bowl around the fuel pickup. I think it doesn’t matter how much you prevent the fuel from sloshing around whatever’s in the bowl will still spill out. I left the rest of the bowl as it would act as a barrier for the foam to hit the pickup/level float. Will it work? Only time will tell.

here is the link to a hydramat video

This is a decent cheap idea if it actually works.

not much info on it and the testing that the guy was doing wasn’t related to track driving. I’d like to see more reviews on it in actual track conditions from people who have had fuel starve without it.

i was looking into this as well. Here is a YouTube video...I haven’t had time to watch it fully yet...not sure if he tested it or not. But something to look out for when he eventually hits the track.

the guy that made that plate never said he tracked his car. I think he drag races or something but the video says otherwise. I’m confused if it actually works or if it’s a cash grab

Have a few small things to complete but the car is pretty much ready for the race season.

waiting on some mirrors and I think I’m going to attempt to make my own plexiglass side windows. I also have a little bit of aero work to do.

Looks really good.
Glad you have two seats. That way you can come with me when I drive your car! ;-)
