Default upside down car = shut off

if my car flips and a turn marshall dosent get to it within 30 secs it dies. can i fix this by adding a few inches of fuel line? and then after that how do i check that im at 125cc?

I used to have that problem but I found out that I was to lean on the bottom end and I have not had a problem since

Probably low side is too lean, by adding extra tubing that should help too. As long as you dont go overkill adding a couple inches of tubing shouldnt hurt anything.

Plus IMO it would also depend on what kind of fuel tank you have, the Losi has the clunk style that allows the filter to fall down to the fuel when upside down.. 30 sec is quite a while to be upside down and no marshall you must be on a huge track with limited marshalls

30 seconds is an eternity at our track. it takes only 33 seconds to complete one lap. I say you need an air horn to alert the turn marshalls!

30 seconds isn't that bad, Mine might take that long to flame out, but it's never been upside down that long so I don't know.
