    I'm looking for an 8' to 9' long belly tank. Preferably fiberglass. I've found an 11' and a 4'8" but those are too long and too short. Just checking if any of you guys had a lead. Thanks.

    my friends either one of us can lift it by ourselves! im sure the fiberglass isnt that much lighter. the alum. ones are pretty thin.

  10. Get in touch with Elmo Rodge (that is his HAMB name). Wayno makes fiberglass P-38 tanks. He is in Salina, UT. He just finished his belly tank lakester and ran at Speedweek, #404 if you see any pics of it.

    Hey, Mattrat are you looking to make a super high mileage car out of a drop tank? If so and you buy a fiber glass one they should be able to lay it up lighter than normal since you won't need that much strength for low speed. I have a steel tank that is 10ft long and it is not that heavy,[I can pick it up by myself] I live in louisville, but can take it to Indy goodguys swapmeet if you want to look at it dave

    I bought this one the other day. Going to build a pedal car type deal for my son out of it. They are only about 5 foot but maybe he has info or can get you one in the length you want.

    Yes I am,,, getting ready for the Shell Eco-Marathon in April. That's a good point about the laying of the fiberglass. I'm in hopes of making a 60lb car. My last one was 106lbs.
