The purpose of the pressure pick up from the exhaust into your tank is the pressurise the air on top of your fuel...... if you open the cap you will lose pressure where ever the pressure feed is coming in from!!!!

Ok...if you think you're right..that's cool. But reread what I said. I said the fuel flow slows down if you have no tank pressure. I didn't say it would stop. You can run your car with no tank pressure at all, because like you say, the engine creates a vacuum, and the fuel will flow. You'll have to retune it to run correctly without any pressure, but it will run just fine. As for the fuel splashing out when you open the lid.....that happens on any nitro car, regardless of where the presure line is. Open the tank and rev up the engine. What happens? Fuel splashes out. Now how do you suppose that happens if the pressure line is on the cap? It's not the exhaust pressure blowing it out. Right? So what is it? If you guys think the small amount of pressure coming from the presure line is enough to blow fuel out of the tank...well....I obviously am not going to change your minds. But that's alright...a friendly debate is fun sometimes. Kinda makes you wonder how Associated can engineer such an awesome car as the NTC3, but "overlook" this tank issue.
Kevin, are you a newbie of nitro cars? The exhaust pressure is to prevent the mid range from running to lean.

Pick me up from the floor someone!!!!!!!
or when u open the cap, the pressure of the WHOLE WORLD increase so it is still constant pressure inside the fuel tank ....

im not saying that either way of positioning the pressure fitting would affect the performance....
im justing saying that putting the pressure fitting on the lid is better because when refueling the car...it would turn the fuel inside the tank and splash everywhere...

but kevin here keep saying that the regular way of positioning the AE pressure fitting is better then the one on the lid because he thinks mounting it on top of the lid would splash fuel everyhwere!

I think that's enough free lecture for this kevin while his brain farts ! not deserve to tell him anything more about physic of planet earch. Let him blow and suck fuel line until he understand what he is saying.
