Holley HydraMat Helps Mackin Industries Scion FR-S Tackle Pikes Peak
One specific problem that Pikes Peak racers face is fuel supply. This is not a unique problem to them though. Almost all motorsports inherently create high-G situations, whether it is a hard launch in drag racing, hard cornering in drifting, or jumping in Stadium Super Trucks. The Mackin Industries Pikes Peak FR-S had to deal with these same issues. The 156 turns of Pikes Peak push the fuel inside of their fuel cell every which way except for down. While sumped tanks with auxiliary pumps have been used to varying degrees of success, Philip Chase of Mackin Industries wanted to solve the problem once and for all. Despite recording a DNF due to other mechanical issues, Chase had nothing but praise for the HydraMat, stating "We used the 11" x 11" HydraMat as part of our fuel system and it worked flawlessly. The tight hairpin corners and constant climb can make fuel delivery an issue, but our data logs throughout the entire event showed no fuel starvation or loss of pressure. Great product!” We can't wait to see this FR-S make another run at Pikes Peak next year.
The Amazing Holley HydraMat| 12/17/2014
Holley’s patent pending design solves the problems associated with traditional fuel pick-ups in stock fuel tanks as well as racing fuel cells. During hard cornering, acceleration, stopping, inclines, and low fuel conditions fuel runs away from the fuel pick up which introduces air into the system resulting in poor engine performance and even stalling.
