I don't know if I was going cw or ccw lol. Yes, I meant right and thanks for all the support brother Rusty. The right hander is about a 75 mhp sweeper. Good thing I took some video or I may have stayed confused.

Just ordered mine yesterday. Has anyone installed a kill-switch for the kit? Tips on location or hardware?

Been running the hydramat for 1.5 seasons now. Cant believe it resolved all my issues...I actually ran out of fuel on the final lap of my last session last year. No more starve!

Need to add a kill switch myself. Any sort of daily driving can be annoying because you never get proper fuel readings.

@phunk - Yes, I'm running the Z1 anti-starvation kit, featuring the hydramat, and yes, it cured it completely...at least for me so far.

I have data showing the G's I pull and i thought maybe it would help a bit, but boy was I wrong! I have the mat on the drivers side, sucking up into the pump and flowing it directly into the basket of the main pump. POOF! Starvation gone. On mainly three tracks with it....Pocono North Course. NJMP Lightning and Thunderbolt.

I'm sure a higher level driver on a longer sweeping right, with 1/4 tank or less could get it to trigger, but I have to say, I was happy with the results. Couldn't get it to stutter until I actually ran out of fuel.

That is what I would expect to hear from it! The starvation is a result of not having a fuel pickup on the left side of the tank. By adding one, you should not have even the slightest amount of fuel starvation.

Ran my first track day with this in and never had fuel starve hit. Tank went down to 8 gallons, so under half empty. Before I'd get fuel starve at 3/4 a tank.
Only negative is that I must have bent something in the install, because my fuel gauge lights are reading 4 dots lower than they should now.

Me too, but that get a little scary on the track as I don't want to be that guy! I will add fuel at three dots to be safe. If I am doing time attack I will go down to two or three dots and add five gallons.
