The crankcase pressure setup does help with consitency, but if your clunk goes out of the fuel you're still out of luck, just as Tim points out in the videos. I think people don't use header tanks so much because they are bulky, heavy, more parts / fuel lines prone to failure and for most people the leaning out during those high G manouvers either don't happen a lot or can be mitigated with a richer mid needle?
