Default Fuel Line Length -

Can anyone give me the maximum legal race length for the fuel lines for a 1/8 Truggy and a buggy.

There's no max length that I know of. However, your whole setup (tank, lines, filter) can not spec over 125cc.

If you have a fuelline with a 2mm hole you do need 30cm length of fuelline to get 1cc...

With such lengths you will create a lot of resistance preventing a fast flow of the fuel.

Always a bad thing if the engine wants more than the fuel system can give. That is why some brands fuellines have a 2.4mm hole.

max length: from the hole in the fuel tank to the inlet on the carb.... not too difficult.
