I have read about all the engine fire incidences with modified mk3's. Now I think I am going to carry a small extinguisher and a small towel to open the hood incase this ever does happen.

I was just wondering how many owners actually carry extinguishers in their car, and also was wondering if this would be alot better carry one with a towl instead of using hood pins...esspecialy since my car would be parked in public places. Maybe this thread will get people to put one in their cars soo less mk3's burn down :bigthumb:

So I made a poll to see what most of you guys are thinking and what you would do. :bigthumb:

ill probably end up getting one sometime in the future. this past week i saw a guy in a pickup truck park his car that was on fire, and run from it. He had 2nd degree burns on his hands. Truck had no signs of problems either. All the windows blew out car was completly totalled. it was really freaking awesome to watch but then i started thinking what if it was my car.

A friend of mine with a turbo MR2 hit some road debris and put a hole in his oil pan, dropped all his oil in like 2 min, engine caught fire, and if it wasn't for a littel crome fire extingusher he had, his whole car would have burned to the ground, so i think its a good idea to have one.

Make sure you buy a halotron filled fire extinguisher, because it wont leave a nasty residue all over your engine. They arent cheap(avg price is bout $100.00) but its worth it.

Yea, as long as you don’t put it on the a-pillar :)

If you do allot of autocross, drifting, quarter mile etc. you should look into a fire system. I know a guy who was at the track, when one of break lines had burst and sprayed brake fluid on his exhaust manifold instantly catching the engine bay on fire. :( At around $300 they are worth it.

I thought the spot to put it was on the passenger side pillar. What's the purpose if no one can see it? :lol:

definatly get one for the passenger A pillar AND the drivers side too....

that way if youre in an accident you both whack your heads on em.

ive got a marine grade 5lb bottle in my corolla. good for fuel, electrical (almost needed to use it-was leaking PS fluid onto the alternator), and general fires. it was like $10 at home depot. its better than nothing. retarded cheap insurance considering the money invested (spent?) in my car. you can be damn sure ill have one next to my 1jz too.
