You mean with the fiberglass bodies surrounding them.
I agree on por placements.


As far as the cell, ours is 3 gallon behind radiator support where the Firefox nozzles are. Sure it warms up, but never seen a problem with mfi.

Like this?

Obviously the initial hit looks spectacular, but how long did it burn???
I've been on fire, so I am not some stupid naive fool.
What we do is dangerous, some of us need a front cell, some of us just prefer it for performance, it is what it is.
Make the decision how you want, mine was front cell, after the fire.

I estimate 1.2 seconds, and I think keeping the cell small is the key to safety with a front-mount fuel cell.
