yes you may modify any graphite upper deck to fit the K factory LCG fuel tank provided that there is enough black area to make an extra hole.

Original Kyosho Carbon option deck would also be possible from what Manticore is saying about the original Fibreglass deck. I guess the 'no-brand' carbon decks would also fit in that category since you just need enough material on the side of the tank.

besides to make a new hole on the upper deck. with the new LCG fuel tank you need to chop the receiver box to make more room.

Can you still use the 'modified' reciever box? I like the 'neat' way I can hide all those wires!

hehe... probably not that much... it's just that the original location for the fuel tank is so high that it looks horrid....
