    I work in the auto industry and fires are looked into and if a design flaw like anything can puncture a fuel tank then something needs to be designed to prevent it. I would be all over this with NSHTA which I am sure would be very interested in this fire. Any kind of thermal event is huge safety concern. I bet the news also would be interested in this story to follow. Do not let them get away with this.

    Guess I should have read the whole thread before commenting. :o|
    Glad to read about the outcome and everyone was safe.
    These stories about huge
    corporations trying to weasel out of something their fault just upsets me.

    My guess is by denying the claim and then "handling it internally" they avoided alot of problems for themselves that they would have had if they admitted fault in the claim.

    Forgot to share this one with you guys from last week when I was home. Got to play with the YXZ a little around the house but never made it out to the trails. So far seems like a fun little buggy but won't get any more time in it until next season. Back to the Sidewinder for now.
