Default Opinions of Braided Fuel lines...

Not worth it, if anything the metal braids will warm up and contain the heat, which would hurt horsepower. I have never broken a fuel line in any kind of racing...

Its not worth it. I had exactly like that one on my ntc3. The blue rubber thing ( the one thats connected to the metal braids) always comes off especially when Im removing them on my os12tr. And putting it back is a pain in the [email protected]#$ . I use a hairdyer to shrink it a little but still after a couple of runs it still comes off. After that I remove them and replace them with the regular fuel line. Besides they are too short . Well thats just my experience.

well, they sure r purdy!

Well not really in my opinion, but for rc cars, stick to the regular stuff.

Just make sure you replace your lines often, cheap insurance (as 2 feet of tubing costs around 2 bucks)
