BUT i could not get a new one for race day
soooo you can fix them with a solder iron
you have to take the lid off to do so just
melt the plastic back should hold till new tanks arrive

Hi Wayne, how are you? Pete got the e-mail too, but he found another way also. A New version of the tank is going to be tested today at Homestead. Next week will start the new production and we will have the problem fixed really soon!

Not sure of everyone's circumstances, but I have seen the hinges break on tanks due to some guys using old belts to make a contraption to open the lid from the rear window of the car. This pulls open the lid at an acute angle and puts unecessary stress on the hinge.
