Default Fueltank for ST-RR

Hi
I have an ST-RR and i need a new tank, but i don't want a tank without clunk filter. My engine stall even when i have two kyosho fuelfilters. It doesnt stall "poff" it takes like 5-10sec and on training days we only have like one guy running for cars, even though he is fast, its not fast enough)


So blablabla, now to my question. I dont know how many fueltanks uses clunkfilters for truggy tanks but the one from Losi 8ight-T does.
Do you guys know if it will fit with some minor modifications? Or perhaps know of any other 150cc tanks with clunk filter that fit better?

Its now like the JQ the car fuel tank who looked pretty much exacly like the losi 2.0 buggy tank or agama A8. The losi tank looks to be longer but not as wide as the kyosho tank.

Please help
Thanks /Vinnie

you really don't need a clunk tank if your engine is tuned right. most likely you're too rich on the bottom and lean on top, and your idle screw is in too far. this is a common symptom because as some people start to lean the low speed out, the idle raises and they mistake this for being too lean on the bottom. i could let my Evo idle upside down for a good minute w/o flaming out. also make sure your pressure line is long enough, it should be about a 12" or so. i'm sure you could fab up a way to get a clunk tank to fit, just saying you should fix the real problem, which most likely is an engine out of tune. good luck dude.
