Default Better "quick-fill" Fuel Bottle?

I am looking for a better fuel bottle...one that has a long enough spout (?) on it that can reach my tank with the body on, yet a stopping mechanism to prevent overfill. When I tilt the bottle to fill the tank with the body on, there is no way to stop filling the tank without quickly straightening it and spilling fuel everywhere. I have one of those simple Losi quick-fill bottles right now. The one I have not only doesn't have this, but the only way to fill it is the squeeze-method, which is annoying. I want to be able to manually fill the entire bottle. Any product recommendations?

Here is what I'm using now:




Thanks!

To me the best is the Xceed/Serpent one. I use it on the 1/10 and with it i can be nearly fast as with a fuel gun.

Sounds to me you really want a fuel gun. And not all guns are equal.

Try squeezing the air out of the fuel bottle before filling. I use a HARD Team magic bottle and a Capricorn, both are good and do the job as a bottle goes. Best tips for fast fills is to have enough but not too much fuel in your bottle.

Yeah the bottle is this one
The unique difference is that Serpent makes it orange...Xceed is green and Robitronic is red but are all the same

I still prefer the bottle in the 1/10 scale because it's easier and you don't risk to make the car horribly wet
and also in the 10th you can full fill the tank with one squeez.

So my suggestion is to stay with a bottle if you run the 10th and choose a gun if you have 8th cause the tank is much bigger.

Default talking about fuel guns...

hiya folks,

since we're also yakking bout fuel guns, does anyone know where to get this?

or why it's shaped the way it is? How does it work?

I think it's really interesting, but I can't seem to find any info on it, Kyosho or otherwise.

thanks for any help!
