Thanks for all the info and making me laugh, I knew it was probably that simple. I just wanted to hear some people's experience/ techniques.

Nice tip on trimming it like a clutch pin, I'll use it. As far as the line I thought any fuel line would work. I've replaced mine a couple times and just use the colored line from hobbytown they have behind the counter. Seems to work fine.

the Losi line that comes in 3' length is what we all use. I replace it even with a new tank. the stiffer line will not bounce around as much.

Thanks Casey, I used to race with you when I lived in Tucson. Well I was on the track, lol you were probably 2 or 3 laps ahead of me.
