Default Dying at 1/2 tank?

Occasionally, my SC8 will bog out/ die at half a tank, almost always the same spot. And other times, I'll run through a tank without issue.

Any idea what's going on?

maybe an air leak ?

Does the tank have a small crack in it about 3/4 of the way up so that when the fuel level falls below this then its sucking in a little air ?

More than likely a little too rich on the bottom and/or not enough air gap

I would also say that you have a hole in the tank.
