Default another electric to nitro guy

hey there all. I have posted a couple questions on here recently about my newest rc addiction. the nitro car. I have an ofna ravager with a force 28. I was running it today and tuning it some and noticed after my 2nd tank that there was a little smoke coming out of the body near the manifold. I am not running the stock pipe manifold setup on this car btw. it is a jammin pipe and header. anyhow, i noticed on the rear shock tower there is some fuel spray and also there is fuel residue on the underside of the head and some on the crankcase. the engine seems to tune well and the header is awfully tight on the head so i doubt i have leak there. if the head itself was leaking, the engine would not tune very well. any ideas where this may be coming from? the carb where it is closest to the cooling head was damp too. any ideas? thanks in advance>

sounds like a header gasket to me, doesn't take much of a tear to cause a problem
