Default Fuel Gun

Well as the tittle says I need a new fuel gun for my pits. Any suggestions? I want to know discharge rate if possible. I have the RB aluminum one but the thing is that since it is Al I can't see fuel left on the gun so I don't know if I can extend or I have to enter the pits earlier.

One of the best ones I have seen over the years is the Kyosho one. It hardly leaks and if I remember correctly, it has an exterior tube line that is suppose to be the fuel gun capacity indicator so you know how much fuel is in and/or left in the gun.

I see your point, but IT is the best one I have ever used, if other ones are faster, great, but I've never used the other ones. I was giving my opinion on the Xceed one.

The problem of oll those same Xceed/Collari look a like guns is that the endtip falls to deep into the tank, when filling up and taking out the gun it is not filled yo the edge, the RB, Losi and others with a short or no endtip does fill the tank up to the edge.

I have taken a Dremel and trimmed up the air tubes to help with that issue.

It is not a problem with the air tubes, just the endtip will dump about 4cc less in your tank due to its size.
