Either I have the tank move enough to cut off fuel flow OR it melts its self on the pipe.
I have seen a few guy use the new B3 tanks in their 8.2's with out too many issues.

I just made the swap from the D8T tank.

The B3 tank sits much better on the chassis. It also sits about 15mm more forward then the D8 tank did.

Hello Tom,

Did you get an answer for this? I was wondering the same too!

Did you use the original fuel tank stand offs?

Assuming you had to drill new holes in the chassis for the B3 tank standoffs?

I believe it's one hole you drill in the chassis, and the losi tank mounts work. B3 tank I am talking about.

I just pulled my center diff apart and found out where a grinding noise was coming from. I was looking for center diffs and noticed that v2 diffs cost the same as v1 diffs. Is there anything extra I need to run v2 diffs in a rc8.2? Thanks
