+1 but if the new tank doesnt work I'll run the d8 tank and pick up a new ride for next year.... Will it be another Durango we will see. On a side note I couldn't be happier with my desc410.

Kyle McBride did ok at the FEMCA championships...
I don't see the big deal with the tank. The RC8/T had tank problems too, and I think people still had issues with the newer tanks. But I just put a D8T tank in mine when it went bad and moved on... problem fixed.

That's right. I ran each rc8 had tank issues also, just didn't fit me but I was patient for almost 4 years. Sold it all to get the 408. I can't afford to buy and sell every buggy that comes out. But I can say I've gotten faster results with 408 . I still don't have any issues with tank, but I also glued all screw holes, seam and keep an eye on it. I'm happy with my buggy and I have no reason to get another.the parts will be out for sale when they're ready.
