Someone's trying to sneak a truggy tank onto a buggy again! LOLz.

It deos take people a while to figure out that your cheating. But someone will eventually notice:

"Did the computer just say 15 minutes?..... Hey, who is that pulling into the pits?"

yes, for the most part Truck tanks will be a little bigger sometimes in
"Height" but usually in Lenght........
but the 8IGHT series the buggy tank is a little shorter so the truck tank
wont fit all that well...and the down side it will hit the Clutch bell.
kinda "Drill" through it...
i think someone mentioned a while back a Duratrax Raze? and a Hyper7 tank
will work...??? but i would double check on that...???


Oh and buggy tanks are 125cc and truggy tanks are 150cc
hope this can help in finding tanks

I guess it depends on where your racing. I often thought about it at the club
races when pit guys are in short supply. If I start my buggy myself,walk up
the stand, then go out for a 2min warmup, then run a 7min qual, i was dangerously close.
If someone flames or there was other trouble .

We also had a couple guys running RBs that could not make it through a
7min qual without fuel.

I figured at a club race as long as I came in every 8-9 minutes or so in the
main no one would ever complain.
