Default Fuel Guns Do Thay help or Work

i was looking at some fuel guns and thinking that thay
may be a good thing to have not only to save some time
but to get the fuel in the tank and not all over the place
so do thay work or just so so

I love mine. Definately a faster pit with a gun. They are also very easy to use and clean to pit with. If you run long mains, it is a must IMO. They do leak, but it's worth it. I use a losi one.

Default ++1 Losi

Our losi gun used to leak, but I made a polished alumium holder for it, and squirt WD-40 on the trigger area o rings before use, and no more leaks, my son race's and I'm the pit man, we actually practice pit stops, 3-5 laps in a row, once you get it down, you'll be surprised at who you beat out of the pits, so will everyone else!

Yes, spray the O-rings down with WD-40 and work the trigger a few times, then I rince the gun out with nitro, you just got to make sure the trigger extends all the way forward or it will leak, even if you don't use it for awhile put oil on the O-rings
