Yes much faster after last weekends race I'm sold. Darren was pitting for me he used his ProLine gun, that was the fastest I've ever been in and out of the pit. Very consistant.

Also guys I think I may have answered my own question here.... It appears (according to TowerHobbies) the Proline gun has been discontinued... So Losi it is!

Thanks for all the input!

I'll take you up on that Will! Coming out for the Summer series. I can always use your expertise in the pit for me. My fuel gun works fine, but you can use yours if you like

I was at that level this past weekend at JBRL. Qualified 6th over all, and came in 4th. 15 minute race, so i know i had to pit after the 7:30 mark. It doesnt matter to me if i took 124cc or 130cc. i know i can do 9 in truggy with the way i am driving now.

Proline fuel guns=cronic failure. I had one that lasted about a month, then it would not hold any fuel. I thought it was a fluke, so I bought another one, same thing happend shortly after. Don't waste your money on the PL.
Losi unit works like a charm and is $10 cheaper. I also saw that Losi released a re-build kit that comes with a nice cap.

i use the dynamite fuel gun, with the red nozzle. It never has leaked, trigger has never stuck, and it works great. You thread the gun onto a standard gallon bottle, nozzle end into the bottle, turn it upside down, pull the trigger and it fills, or you can take the bottle off the gun to fill it, works great!!

Carlos - You talked me into a losi fuel gun. I had no idea that it decreased the pit time. I know last weekend that killed me. I brought my truck in for fuel and my pit guy was working on another drivers car. Luckily I was able to get another pit guy fill my car up for me and get back out on the track. But fast pit stops make all the difference. Will try it out on Sat.

I've had the PL gun for over a season.

I really like it and it works well for me.

Not Cool - if he is suppose to pit for you - your car should be first priority. I would have been pissed. Thats y big races I take my own pit man. Just some one in my neighborhood. They want to get away from their wives too ... hahaha. But in the situation - a fuel gun wont help.
