    Tonight was our first time out of the garage for a few miles... Zero track time so far, but we're hoping to hit a test and tune this week... Glad we're not the only ones not sleeping, lol.

    Here's some video from tonight...

    Good catch though, that would been a mess. It's sounds you're in good shape Doug as last minute DW thrashes go.

    What kind of fuel cooler do you use?

    The only 'true fix' I found was to use a pump controller and install a fuel cooler..(on the return side if EFI)..
    the big pumps make heat and move lots of fuel..
    and with EFI it's bringing all the engine heat back to the tank..
    I was also told by a Fuel Pump company that a return style system for a carb set-up prevents vapor lock..
    also..try not to let the fuel tank get below 1/2 tank..

    just my .02

    I've run an Aeromotve controller for a few years now, including the last two DW's. Well over 12,000 miles on a carb. set up with return system. Using Aeromotive's stealth set up with A1000 pump inside the full cell. All over kill for my power level, but have never had a fuel issue.

    I vote for quarterpanel scoops (or naca ducts) that you could close if needed

    "cool cans" have been barred by NHRA and most tracks for a long time because they leak or drip condensation onto the track.

    Because in-trunk fuel cells are in essence insulated containers in a hot box they contribute to the problem and might well need a finned tube or other kind of external cooler.

    I used the Aeromtive controller for years with no issues. It uses a tach signal to determine the rpm point where it goes from low volume to high volume. I disconnected it last year when I was chasing a strange reading on my fuel pressure and saw no difference, but my tank is steel in stock location under trunk which helps with cooling. The contoller could make a huge difference with a fuel cell, as volume drops by about half even though it still holds pressure.
