is a 32 gallon cell overkill for a metric??? rules say 3200 pounds. and a buddy of mine has a cell that is a freebie.

free is free but myself i prefer a 12 gallon cell that way you can move weight as needed instead of being limited with space or place for weight. i think i would just try to sell it and invest in a smaller cell

I have a 32 gallon in my 79 regal bomber class. Works great easy way to add extra weight. Bottom of cell is only 2 in above the pumpkin

Just my .02, so don't get mad, fellers.

Unless your running enduro cars for freakishly long races, what's the point of carrying 30 gallons of fuel? I use an 8 gallon cell because its less fuel sloshing around back there. If some jag dork rear ends me during a wreck, I'd sure rather have 6 gallons of gasoline 6 feet behind me instead of 28.

But I will admit, if you can't add ballast and can't have weight jacks, a 32 gallon cell would be a tempting solution to get rear %.

amen westernauto17 our shop just burned to the ground and i have a new respect for fire now. not to mention how much easier a smaller cel is to locate keep away from getting taking out in wrecks as well as working around..
