Default Losi LST fuel tank

First: It only has about 10 tanks run. After I start it which is easy I pull the throttle and it dies. I have tried like hell to tune the low mixture but to no avail. Maybe has a air leak but don't know how to test that.

Second: Had a MGT with the patented fuel tank design which would run like normal when upside down. LST dies after 10 seconds upside down. Is there a mod or different tank I can get. Maybe a way to adapt the MGT tank to the LST.

The LST tank is unique. You might be able to find something else that'll fit there, if you are using an rx flat pack mounted in the holder.

To test an air leak, empty the tank, put it underwater with a new piece of fuel line attached to the pressure fitting, and cover the output. Blow and check for bubbles.
You may get bubbling from around your finger that's plugging the output...no big deal.

If its from the primer, that's somewhat normal with primered tanks. You may be able to call losi and get a replacement, but I'm not a big fan of primers anyway. Just pull it out. I don't know the exact procedure for this on the LST tank, Losi would probably tell you how to do it...but make sure you remember exactly what they say.

I tried this on a traxxas tank one time, I missed the part about cutting the metal shaft...*CRACK*
