it is a free world, the more models you try out the more contrast you will have amongst them and then you would be albe to say which you like best.

Lets not start another "mugen is the best, screw the rest" debate.

How do you tell the difference in the tanks visually?

I'm assuming that my kit has the updated tank since it came with the newer front suspension arms and uprights. I have been noticing on the last few times I've been fueled during a race, the engine sounds super rich when leaving the pit lane. I'd like to know for sure I got an updated tank. So, if there is a visual way to tell, I'd like to know.

The main difference is in the location of the o-ring in the cap. The older version the o-ring sits almost to the inside of the tank. When the cap seal first engaged the throat to the tank till it stopped, it would compress that much air in the tank, often times over pressurizes the tank enough that it will flood the carb. The new tank, the cap positions the o-ring higher in the tank throat.

Well yeah there is....the newer tank (ie the one from the Prospec kit) has its pressure nipple parallel to the length of the tank and sits on a hump on the lid....the older tank has a flat lid with the pressure nipple at an angle to the tank and pointed towards the inside of the buggy when mounted.....

won't full droop abssolutely destroy shock caps/pistons/etc over time? Wont it also loosen the shock cap over time?

Ive notices you need to add about 4-5mm of droop screw before taking the load off the caps and transfering it to the chassis.....everytime you hit a jump and the suspension unloads, it "whacks" the cap....cant be good.

You listed off that collection of cars and followed it by saying: "these days I'm enjoying the hobby on a budget pace"


I like your style Cowboy.
I hope I have a budget like yours someday.
