    lines inside the car is completely legal as long as they are metal or braided. most rally cars have their lines inside to prevent them getting torn off on big rocks etc. I too have my lines run inside and it has passed tech for solo , hillclimb events etc. also i asked the customer if he wanted the cell dropped but he didnt want that so its were it is. my car also has the cell in the same position, but i am running a diffuser so i had no choice. it really dosent affect the handling all that much. yes it would be better lower though.

    also theres no need to call things retarded. you just need to now why first and make your desicion from there.

    Seems pretty pointless on a road car though. But ya, makes a ton of sence on a rally car or something thats going to be getting smashed with rocks.

    I like to call things retarded without thinking about it. It makes me the man I am.

    Although yes, it is preferable to have the weight low, you also like to keep it between the wheel base. Tough to do both

    in the sr86 im putting the fuel cell behind the passenger seat and running my own fuel and brake lines thru the car.

    i dont understand why people think fuel lines, or for that matter fuel tank, brake lines, etc... on the outside of the car is a good idea (nothing personal junglematic, i get it from everyone)
    but seriously people think about it?... there is nothing "safe" about a gas tank(period)

    My fuel lines are interior for the same reason that adam stated, there is a much higher chance of them getting blown open under the car. That seems wierd. And I'm talking regular drift events. If you've been to one, then you've ratched the bottom of your car somewhere along the line.

    looks really neat,

    a few questions:

    any crossmember mods to get it to clear the sump/sit lower? is your bonnet going to clear?

    I heard in cabin fuel lines are illegal in Australia for on-track drifting.
