The obp Motorsport Pro-Race V2 pedal system has positive stops for the accelerator and clutch pedals which pivot on large and super smooth lubricant impregnated bushings for a super long service free life, smoothness and good bias bar operation. The pedal assembly comes in floor mount, bulkhead mount, and top mount variants. Provisions for a drive by wire electronic throttle are optional.
There are also optional weld nuts and stiffening plates on the obp Motorsport Pro-Race V2 pedal assembly available to ease the chassis fabrication side of things. We feel the obp Motorsport pedal assemblies are a solid value and a no brainer for any race car fabricator. They provide real adjustable brake proportioning, have an inexpensive solution for drive by wire systems and help ease the fabrication process while mounting.
Fuel Safe is ISO9000 certified for quality manufacturing and their products meet or exceed all FIA and SFI standards. A fuel cell is not an ordinary fuel tank. It is an aerospace based fuel tank that resists rupture. In the unlikely event of a rupture the fuel cell is designed to contain and minimize spillage and fuel available to a fire. Fuel cells were developed in WWII to make fighter planes more bullet and crash resistant and were first adopted into race cars in the 1960s. Prior to this racers had no real protection in a crash from a fuel fed fire and many drivers perished or were maimed in fires. Since fuel cells were first used, the driver’s odds of survival in a crash, have been greatly increased.
The bladder is the flexible, extremely strong, fuel container that prevents fuel spillage in the event of a severe accident. Made from high tensile strength alcohol resistant plastic, engineered to withstand the fuel’s chemical attack, the bladder is the most important part of the fuel cell. In a bad crash the metal container of the fuel cell may bend and smash but the puncture resistant bladder will keep the fuel where it belongs.
The surge tank has a 3.5 liter capacity and is continuously filled by an in-cell lift pump. The surge tank itself has twin pump capacity, enough to feed the thirsty BMW engine at full boost no matter what the cornering load is. Depending on their specific needs, drivers can configure the DW350L Modular Surge Tank to use single, dual or external pumps. This surge tank is also anodized, making it fully compatible with the use of E85.
