Extra Fuel Tank for RXT-X
Question: I'm looking to compete Project Barracuda in several of Jim Lambert's DJSA Enduro races in NorCal over the next year.
The problem is that while running a Mini Rude with 50lbs injectors (running at 12:1 AFR), and a custom Powerchip tune, the '08 RXT-X simply doesn't carry enough fuel to make it the entire race at WOT.
I've heard of a few guys running supplementary or secondary tanks in the bow. I'd love to see some images and hear some hints as to a cheap and easily repeatable systems. What's needed? What parts did you use?

The simplest & cheapest way is to contact Steve Freibe at Clawson Motorsports. I as well as others are using a 4.5 gallon add-on stainless tank that he designed & has built on request. If I remember correctly the whole deal costs less than $ 300.00. It simply sits in your front bucket, is strapped down via a couple of holes in the bucket, & a couple of simple fuel lines run. I think Steve has some pictures he can send you. Good Luck beating Sean Conner in the Norcal races. He has the Freibe fuel tank in his boat by the way.

Well, I think you know the answer. And its a 4 hour drive north to the Famous one! Give him a call. If you need his # PM Me I'll shoot it over to you.
Sweet ski..Hope we see it at DP-Oside Kevin!

OK, I can see that Mr. Freibe is the guy. Thanks for the input.
And no, I won't be racing the Dana Point-to-Oceanside. But, I might have a small article on our website on it. I'm starting to shy away from races with $200-plus entry fees. Frankly, I think everyone should...
