Fire extinguisher system

(1/4) > >>

The TCS I am rebuilding was originally raced in the 70's and I am restoring to production racing spec. I need to fit a fire extinguisher system. Anyone got any recommendations on what to fit and where to put the kit


There is some good information on this thread: http://www.lotuseuropa.org/LotusForum/index.php?topic=879.msg6487#msg6487

Thanks,  I do  search on the database etc but never seem to find what I'm after!

The organizing body will have a detailed spec as to what is required.  Check with them first!  You don't want to spend money on a system that won't pass inspection.

Mine is strictly for road use so I went with halon: large 10 lb bottle, cable controlled for the engine compartment and a small halon handheld in the cockpit.

I think it's better to spend a bit more on a gas based system than all the AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) extinguishers, they work better and don't leave as much of a mess in case you actually need to use it.
