    SLC Fuel tank questions.

    Also the filler neck that bolts to the tank has a rubber flap valve in it to stop fuel going back up the filler hose, mines a Fuel Safe part if I remember correctly, this will help if the filler hose is torn off and you're upside down and... I'll stop there.

    SLC Fuel tank questions.

    Hi All, The last time I posted in was 2013, been a while... Anyhooo, the scratch built car I'm building has a similar tank design to the SLC (I think). Please correct me if I am wrong, from looking at photos... Where the tank is, is not sealed off from the engine bay, but the holes...

    Celebrate!! / Does the Paddock Need to Continue?

    Hi Ron, Basically as I feel it does the image of the site no good at all being associated with the some of the posting in The Paddock. IMHO I think you just need a few volunteers to moderate the "guaranteed to cause a shit fight" posts off of the board. Hand out some 3 months bans (seems to...
