having too much fuel line is bad also! Sometimes all the back pressure in the world can't push fuel through a mile of tubing!

I never have that problem with all my buggies in the past. I usually put 2 fuel filters inline to keep enough fuel in reserve. This time I thought it would be fine with just the bulb pump filter. I try to run slower concentrating on my line and that makes me faster believe it or not. Thanks for the compliments...

So whats the problem with the XB8TQ? Seems like this buggy isn't all that popular. I expect this buggy to be top notch as the 007 on road car wins all the time so what gives on the TQ??????

You won't find much discussion here due to Xray's own forums being so good, so go to www.teamxray.com. Nothing wrong with the car, best on the market to me!

Xray all the way. Very strong, nothing wears out and I've had no problems making mine very quick!

Something about XRays and RB Concepts. I run a C6BB in mine and I love that combo! The Werks engines also go very well in the XRay.

Depending on the track size either a C6BB, WS7III on the RB side or the B7 or B3 Teamline engines. These Werks engines are very underrated IMHO! I run a turbo plugged and modded B3 in my truggy and it's probably the hairiest engine in my stable. And my stable includes an RB Mods C6BB and a modded Axe Rossi LSK so I know what a powerful .21 is

Any of the engines mentioned above is a great choice in a TQ. It's a great buggy that IMVHO a lot of people don't understand because they're sooooo adjustable right out of the box. Most people aren't patient enough with them!

And to a certain degree you get what you pay for in terms of longevity. But even some of the less expensive engines will last a long time if properly cared for. It does seem more of the expensive engines live longer if you get what I mean. You've got a better chance that your purchase will last 6+ gallons of fuel with the more expensive engines.

I've seen Axe Rossi LSKs go for 11 gallons and 9 gallons (between two different racers) before replacing piston/sleeve was needed. And I've read people getting even more than that! Don't know about the conrod on those engines though. But it's just an example of what I mean.

The C5BB is just an older model of the C6BB. Hardly any difference, so worth a shot for the right price.
