its been a while.
used a brand new rrr at the victorian states,,and you guseed it..the tank leaked..easily fixed..pressure tested (hot water trick)..found leak.
got a soldering iron..( done the scab!),,
checked again and little bubbles came out of the lid..from the back.
checked my FW's tanks..new and old..and they leaked little bubbles from the lid in the same place
Never had problems with those cars (in fact a friend was running one all week)...the RRR tank leaked a little more though..
closer inspection of the seal and it was slily offset..( manufacturing!!!!!!!!!!)..replaced with a serpant seal..and its now better than the FW's................
oh you can lower the tank by 4mm if you cut out the centre plastic that joiuns the rear top tray mounts together.. i used alumin 4mm spacers and longer screws,,still clears the battery..100 nimh. ..helps heaps,,,
whats this new deck i hear about..any links to the pics?
