Default DE Racing Tank Pull kit. Good/Bad?

How many of you have used this kit? And do you like it? I have trouble finding long enough zip ties to make the home-made "loops" using fuel tubing.

Would this be a good solution for me or do you guys have another rig?

hard to find long ziptie? any hardware store should have them (lowes, home depot etc)

loop is much better than the de racing *****. sorry but for a buggy, loop is unbeatable as the de racing pull is very small and hard to grip in pit gloves if u need a very fast pit stop and for truggy ziptie with a wing washer on the end works the best

I think they work well, I like that they are removable too. Only have to buy it once and I've switched tanks like 3 times this year (yep, I run an RC8). Looks so much better.

They not only work great but with assorted colors they help pimp-out your ride!

I'm rocking a purple one on my truggy, and have been using the same pull for about a year...absolutely no problems.

I like mine. I bought it for my son (7 years old) when he pits for me. He says he can grab it easily.

Switch to the D8 tank bub. You getta a clunk and it almost fits just use a servo horn to bridge the gap.

Yup removable only thing holding them on is the fuel line, they include 2 zip ties long, fuel line and the grab for 7 bucks is cheap. Idk y they add 2 zip ties i guess for re use but idk.
