Same here. I've worked on F-18 Hornet fuel tanks and they have almost no baffles in them at all, but a shitload of pipes running every which way. I would've guessed they have some sort of box, so to speak, around the fuel pickup that would have kept as much fuel in contact with it as possible.
It's a real shame there aren't some really high resolution pictures to go with that video, I need a new desktop picture! It's still fantastic that they were so secret with doing this and then releasing it to the public. Absolutely amazing how tight everything is packaged in those cars. I knew the engine was low down, but it still boggles the mind how low everything is in the cars.
