I'm not familiar with the RB C12, but have you tried all new fuel lines? If it has been sitting for a long time they might have old gummy oil in them. You should be able to blow through the fuel tube that goes to the exhaust and carb easily. I would also check for air leaks on the exhaust side. It sounds like the car is not getting fuel and that might mean the exhaust is not pressurizing the tank as it should. How that helps!
