I think I used the thin AE 4/40 nuts that they use on the camber link ballstuds, 2 per rack post with loctite.

After seeing Josh Cyruls dual inlet design on the Orion\RRR at the Worlds last year, it has had me thinking

People have always been concerned about the chassis balance with a shaft drive car with it having all the heavy items on the outside of the chassis. To try and get a little more centre weight design i used paint to create a new fuel tank for the NTC3

As far as I'm concerned the FT dual chamber pipe works great on a NTC3, you won' be disappointed, never tried the werks pipe.

I would go for it at 149.00. The only difference is the graphite parts and trust me; racing on a parking surface your will never feel the difference between plastic and carbon graphite

Howdy Andrew, your tank desing is a bit rough, but the concept is great in theory. i ve never owned a shaft car, but i guess when the tank is on one side and full, would make a difference to handling while the level drops. thats why your concept is good. but can i get you thinking about something else ? if you have the 2 pick up points, whats going to happen when the level drops enough and is able to pick up air on the opposite pick up while the G's are moving the fuel away from it. maybe what would be needed is some sort of valving system to prevent this. i dont know how ? but i will keep thinking

You could almost base this off the serpent impact tanks! where the pick up points are! am I right?

Its not much a diffrence between the two pipes but a better pipe to compare the werks to would probly be the ofna pipe! But dont get me wrong the FT is good but i have ran both the ofna and the werks and i would choose the ofna over both!

I thought i had the pickup points at the lowest points, so it wouldn't have been an issue. As the level came down; i thought it would have been equal on both sides, making the fuel flow equal from both points.

Maybe i am wrong...

I think most manufacturers have gone off shaft drive chassis for Pro Tourers so i don't see any of this being reality. I think the reasoning behind is to do with the more and more powerful engines that have become available and as the grip comes up it reveals the weakest point (eg crown and pinion gears).
