If that's the case then I need to find the Kawahara because right now I have on the lowest hole which I think is the same hole as the stock position.

I think that over 50% of the tanks were leaking from new!

My tank is ok for now (famous last words!!)

Cheers

So far my tank isnt leaking (doah why did i say that) but others at my track have had problems and the common trackside fix is to run a soldering iron around the tank seam and it seems to fix the bad plastic weld that leaks.... cheaper and more permanent than getting a second tank that will spring another leak anyway.
Hope that helps.

silver black and gold. Silver the softest.

I think there are other ones for other Kyosho cars. Yellow and red and just about any spring from any other make of car.

Cheers
