Not really a spare more of a retired buggy that i kept for sedamental value. Its a Jammin x1cr team kit, my first buggy i raced with and finished with so i decided instead of selling it for what they go for now i will just keep it, to me its worth more than 100 bucks on ebay so ill let it sit and eventually i will race it again for a final run but as of right now it will sit and look clean and prettyjust catch a lil dust.

Hey NitroXray80809,

Unless you have removed the clunk in the fuel tank, there is no need for the fuel filter. The clunk is the filter and as designed, the HB will remain running when on its lid.

Removing the fuel filter will allow you to attach the fuel line as designed also.

just go straight fromt he fuel filter to the carb, no need to wrap it around, thats just a problem waiting to happen. same with pressure line shorten it up a couple of inches. i also take a small rubber band around the high speed needle and the pressure line to make sure it doesnt move much. i forgot it once and the flywheel/clutch ate it

nothing to do with tune really, mainly just so it doesnt get ripped off or caught in something.
