You might need to change the fuel tank. They have been breaking at my local track. The chassis flexes and cracks it. I would say use upgraded chassis braces and run the tank o-rings and slightly loose. The local guys have been modding the Jammin truck tanks to fit. Seems to work for them right now.

Default great truck...

I have had a few trucks and this one is well suited for me. I had a mugen, xray, jammin. The tank did have an issue, but some foam underneath it solved that problem and they are making a running change to have a thicker tank bottom... Also the arms have broken and hubs too for some. I broke a hub but its still an awesome truck. I am faster with it, first time out. It actually does what you want it to.

Thanks dudes. Now I know what to expect when I get it. I'm not surprised about the knuckle failing. Had this problem with my 777 recently on both knuckles. The tank issue is new to me. Must be the result of longer chassis. Anyhow, time to keep the spares even for the arms...... many thanks again

If your racing where the outside temps are cold you might want to boil the arms. I done that with mine and so far so good on them.

How long do you boil the arms?

i been running my truck for a while now.. i had the STR, and no issues what so ever, except for the diff gears, which have been upgraded with the STRR, i broke one gas tank.. one left front arm, and one caster block.. i have not broke anything other than that.. i been driving the truck for long time now.. it is up to STRR specs now.. with the exception of drive shafts..

put a piece of tire foam under the tank, and it will be the last tank you need

Guys, I'm about to finish building my trug. Exactly which part of the tank that you have experience breakage?

Usually, its around the seam, on either side, towards the front, or near the front mount.
