    Fire systems--who's got one?

    What's the best setup? Who makes it? How's it work?

    Better yet, can I make it myself, and HOW?

    Also, spring for the extra dosh for the 6.5 lb. bottle rather than the 5 lb. - regs are heading toward requiring 6.5 lbs. for both engine and passenger compartments.

    Thanks Dan I found the info on him I drive with in 20 minutes of his shop every so often. I will swing in and check it out.

    Go to <ecta-lsr.com> and look in the who we are section. There will be a link to Joe and his shop phone number. Keith is in there and Todd - NARider. Also a link to me - of considerably less value!

    You'll need to mount the actuator, nozzles and the bottle(s) and then run lines between them. As you can imagine, the kits are necessarily generic because even if they knew what kind of car its for, fuel cell placement, roll cage design, etc. varies from car to car. Just simple line running, though. I think Greenjunk's is plumbed in copper, if memory serves. I like SS tubing but it's probably not required (as I said, I haven't actually done mine yet).

    I run a 10 lb three nozzle system. one nozzle in the engine compartment, one over the fuel cell and one in the driver's compartment. Cable pull on the dash.

    You need to buy a kit.

    okay, do you guys buy the pieces, and plumb it yourself? Or do the kits come complete?

    Yep....What Dan said.

    We use a Firefox Dual Bottle/nozzle setup. (Thanks Steve 8) and Joe Timney)....

    It is a full on race setup.....If you need one this is the only way to go.

    In LSR, on board fire systems are required above 150 (requirements increase with speed). Many use FireFox, perhaps because Joe Timney at Delaware Chassis works gives us good prices. It's one of the things on the docket for my Camaro.

    I'm guessing you COULD make a system, but by the time you got the tech inspectors to buy off on the bottle(s), nozzle design, trigger mechanism, etc, it probably makes more sense to buy a package.

    Other Input, guys?
