Default Help identifying an HPI

Hi guys. Just bought a used HPI, what I thought was an RS4 3. Messed with it today and it's having issues pressurizing the fuel tank, found the tank has a leak. I went through everything I could find on HPI's site and I can't find a model with this style tank and mount. Can anyone help me to identify what I have so I can order a new tank? TIA

Site won't allow me to post links so I can't post up pictures. The tank has both the outlet and inlet on the top of the tank, that seems to be the difference between it and the others I see in their pics.

Location of the tank differs on some of them also. Really need pics.
Did you look at their website where they have the non current models?

There we go, now it's letting me. Tank placement and everything is the same as the RS4-3 but the way the tank mounts and the tank itself is different. The tank is leaking around the lid so worst case I guess I could get a new lid.

There are 2 tanks that will work. Stock #87021 has a built in primer or you could use stock #72525 that does not have the primer, this is the racing tank.

If you search the HPI site with these stock #s you will see pictures of each tank.

I would recommend 72525.

I just saw ur picture, never seen that tank mounting configuration. I have not run a HPI in a long time but still have my RS4-3 SS and it can use either of the tanks I mentioned above.

Are you sure that is a HPI car?

I have one of those tanks from my RS4-2. The problem is the rear mount won't fit on this car unless I'm missing something. If you look at that second picture this tank mounts offset on the rear, the other tanks like the 87021 mount in the center front and rear. Am I missing something?

Well there you go, it's not an HPI, it's a Himoto. Now I have to figure out which one. And go talk to the shop that sold it to me as an RS4

Thanks for all the help, much appreciated.
