Vincent Jackson drove amazing in his final, had it in the bag but his motor flamed out, and then he had a great recovery drive and for the last 2 laps was all over the 3rd place car and actually got passed but went wide, great racing. I was in the tech inspection, thats where Red RC is setup, and i saw them test the tanks, they tested Vincents 4 times and then called the US team Manager and tested it again in front of him and it was the same, just a little bit over but over none the less, real shame. Definitely a star of the future.

Same with the 1/10 tank it expands after a few runs due to heat but if allowed time to cool it regains size. it really is a shame. Hey Pooh not sure but does the 1/8 come with a tank plug like the 1/10 ??

Valid point Alan! The tank can and should be re-teched under protest.

Did they try putting his fuel on ice and re-teching the tank? Ice cold fuel can cause the tank to contract slightly.
