Thanks.
The side to side end play is normal.

The new ones (clear) are bigger....the thought is, its easier to make it smaller than bigger......My original white one is 2cc short even with a fuel filter....(as per ROAR/IFMAR tech)

Thanks guys all the tank inserts i had wasn't enough so i had to lathe up at piece of plastic big enough to fix my problem and the worst part is my 966 is oversized and my 733 is way undersized

anyway lets just race and see what happens.

had that same issue at the worlds but its true better oversize than undersized
with some patience the 966 is easy and nice to drive , first time i drove the car or have it on a track was at the worlds, and i was about to quit, just couldnt get it to handle, after installing the new suspension upgrade wow !!! at 2555gr too bad my motors did not keep up but i had fun
