Default losi 8 fuel tank ?

Will the losi 8 2.0 Fuel Tank Cap, Spring & Seal kit fit on the stock losi 8 1.0 tank?

2.0 spring+cap on a 1.0 tank is a No Go.

Look where the spring's sit on the 1.0 VS 2.0....there's a built up ridge for the spring's to sit on and the 1.0 tank is lacking it on one side.

there is NOT a 2.0 tank. They had this tank out before the 2.0 came out. It was a running change and they annouced it when the 2.0 came out.

Plz refer to the pic....as A-main and other online retailer's are still selling the 1.0 AND 2.0 spec tank's.....they might have excessive stock in the warehouse....but there is No doubt that there is a 1.0 version and a 2.0 version.....if you cant see that we'll your blind look at the top of the tank where the spring's sit.

here's the buggy also

integra, i understand there is a difference i know this. amain and losi may call it a 2.0 tank but infact this tank was out like 2 months before the 2.0 buggy was even released.

What a timely thread - my 8ight 1.0 tank started leaking yesterday afternoon and I am in the market for a replacement one.

I see the hose routing on the side of the 2.0 tank - will that clear the pipe on the 1.0? I got mine used, so I don't know what it is supposed to look like, but I don't like how my fuel lines are running now.

Thanks,

Bob
