Placement of Fire extinguisher in FC??

Postby 90gtr-x » Thu Apr 03, 2008 10:57 am

Just wondering is CAMS has any stipulations for placement of Fire extinguishers in street driven vehicles. I am thinking of bolting it to the floor behind the passenger seat as its well out of the way there, but don't want to drill holes through the floor if scutineers demand that it needs to be somewhere else..

No rules as far as I'm aware, I don't think rally cars are treated differently? Mine's mounted just in front of the passenger seat (under their knees) for easy access.

I'm not sure if it's actually a CAMS rule but being able reach it quickly and possibly without having to undo a harness etc. could come in handy.

Have to agree with that - wherever you mount it, make sure it is very easy to get to in a hurry! And then pray you never have to use it :wink:
