Had my first race today, was coming second and catching first (my first time on the track and only running rubbers compared to everyone else with foams when my fuel line fell off as ive had problems with it leaking right from the start with 4 different types of fuel tube, I think ill just get the carbon deck and V-OneR tank

What do I have to do to be able to get 30mm foams on the back?

Also the track is pretty bumpy and one guy with a v1rr has taken the floating rear pods off so I guess I shouldnt get sway bars?

3 options one relieve the upright arms with a dremel, 2 buy offset hexes, 3 buy the wide axles.

if your fuel line fell off, it wasnt on properly to start with! use cable ties, they are a shit load cheaper than the plate and tank!

and yes. leave the sway bars alone!

Hmmm actually when I look closer its actually leaking around the top where the top and bottom sections join Ive made a few nic's in the fuel outlet so the hose slides on and grips when it comes off, hope this should fix it?


Grinding down the uprights shouldn't effect it too much? or are the other 2 options worth the cost?

Is the carbon upper deck actually worth while tho not just for fixing my fuel leak?

If the hose is coming off the bottom fitting on the tank, get a nail slightly bigger than the inside diametre, heat it up and flare the thing. that will help keep it on, if the tank is leaking, get onto wherever the car came from as it is a manufacturing fault!

Grinding the arms will weaken them slightly, possibly get some 26mm rears to start with.

The top deck is purely personal choice, i like it, but weigh up the disadvantage of no or little protection for your receiver etc!

also 45 front and 40rear is pretty normal.

Hexes.....I dunno
Axles are about $30
Dremel costs nothing

Axles are probably the best way to go, but I havent had any probs with dremel eiither!
