Question Re: McLaren M1 replica

Hi All,

I have an empty side pod next to me on the driver's side of the car. The 60 litre fuel cell is in the left hand side - I'm not planning anything that would use more fuel than that. My thinking has turned to how to use the driver's side pod for energy absorbtion in a side shunt, and was wondering about that expanding foam used in the building industry, but I'm not sure at all if its density and other properties are suitable. I'm also not sure if it exerts enough pressure to "over-inflate" the side pod and cause fitment problems as it cures. Any thoughts and experiences?

Cheers, Andrew Robertson
