i used some waterproof silicone sealer like the one you use to make head gaskets on a real car , i put a small amount around the seam on a new tank
just to make sure it wouldnt split on me and its been a season and no problems yet

What brand/type of silicon seal did you use? I tried several types of glues and silicon seals, but none seemed to stick. It seems like you found one that will, so please let me know which one you used.

I just sent them 3 of the 5 that have split on me in the past 5 months. Hopefully they'll do the same for me. When I spoke with someone on the phone about it, they said they'd never heard of that happening before. Strange, as every Losi driver at my local track has had the same problems with their tanks. They all split at the seams in the same area.
