same tank for buggy and truggy. if you take out the round white thing in the bottom it comes up to 150 ml(truggy size limit). If you race without it in buggy, you will exceed the limit of 125...

Which means if you are at a race where they are not teching fuel, take the big white thing out, because chances are, EVERY one of your competitors has done the same thing. ha

not really

If there isn't a rule regulating something, how can you be breaking it- cheating?

True, may be an advantage over someone else's car, but not cheating.

I don't think that the buggy and truggy have the same size tank, that plug is there for guys that use an external fuel filter or two, (which will also hold extra fuel ), and can be removed if you don't run the extra filters ( or if you don't use alot of fuel line ), it's only a few cc's but enough to fail tech.
