I have no fuel foaming troubles with just single o'rings under the tank. This chassis has no vibration issues like the stock chassis. It's odd for me to look at my car with the K-Factory tank since I have had to use the Mugen tank on all my other chassis since the NTC3 kit came out. Now, if I could get the leaning problems cured with the K tank I would be a happy camper.
Jim: You guys notice any leaning problems with the stock Ae tank when it gets down to lets say 1/8th a tank?

hey bb,its jason.i never had a problem with the stock tank but i heard of a few people having problems with the low cv tank due to the tank being so long,when the fuel gets to about 1/8 tank it splashes back and forth which i guess could suck some misty fuel or something.i dont really know because i had never run that tank.
but a few people i spoke to came to that conclusion.
if im wrong,please nobody fire at me,thats just what i heard.lol

That's the conclusion I have came up with to Jay. I will try it racing tomorrow, if I can't get it right I'll switch to the stock tank.

So how much does the chassis itself weigh? Stock is about 7 oz for the plate alone, a few more for the braces and deck.

i drilled 2 1/8 hloes in the top of the stock plastic box with a gun drill and used a standard bolink antenna mount.i like to mount the antenna as close to the receiver as possible.plastic antenna mount was i think$1.25 or $1.50.it works out nice because now when i get gas spills,it doesnt stain my antenna wire anymore.
last one i had looked like a dirty cigarette filter.

the new chassis is about 1 oz. heavier than stock.it was pretty tough to even come that close without sacrificing strength.we managed to lighten the car without cutting into the reinforcments

I think I posted earlier The Chassis weighs 11.625 ounces, the stock chassis with risers and deck weighs 10.85 ounces. Thanks for the input Jay, it's getting harder to keep up now with the second job!

hey xray,im gonna answer for jim.he has been real busy and im trying to help him out.im jason breiner from b.m.i. racing.i would say hard coat is a real good way to go,only problem is that it is very expensive.polish is nice but doesnt harden the surface.my advise is if you do anything,standard anodize would be the most economical.hardcoat will be harder to scratch,but it will still scratch.if your chassis gets badly scratched,you can always send it back to us for refinishing.if the scratches arent that bad,i can resurface the bottom and engrave the logo again.if you ever need to do so,just let jim know and we will work out a price.the cost will be minimal.just keep an eye on your ride hieght and you should be fine. i have raced around 5 times so far with my chassis and have only a few small scratches on it.i dont have to run my ride height as low as the stock chassis.the car pretty much works no matter what you do.lol .when i first put it on the track,i just slapped it together because i was so excited just to try it,it was already handling better than it ever has.once i dialed it in, it was to good to be true.i let my friends try it and they couldnt believe it.
it went where ever you pointed it.

Damn I hate you guys, lol. Looks like another investment I will have to make soon for the car. As you all know, the car handles so well as is, but if it helps handleing, it is a must. Must count my coins and place an order .
