Default adding an additional fuel filter

Im thinking about adding a second fuel filter on a losi 2.0 buggy. I know it has the fuell clunk in the tank but is a second external fuel filter better? Were is a good place to mount one as there is very little room? Does anyone have a pic of were they mounted one? thanks in advance for any info...also this would increase the run time correct?

you dont really need it if have plug in tank still take it out for extra fuel volume if really want filter then use mugen filter and mugen filter mount and mount your filter on servo tray side of splash gaurd under the airfilter

Mudbooger.. there's nothing wrong with running an additional filter.

I might take the clunk out, i added a second filter and for some reason now the tank shuts off with a 1/4 tank left in it, when i looked in the tank the clunk was half out of the fuel allowing it to take in air, id like to find a way to allow it to draw the fuel without using a clunk. is there an aftermarket tank available?
