Default Tank pressure valve...

Hey,

I've been looking into fuel pressure valves, and wondering if they are worth it...

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXG850&P=6

This has a silicone flap type valve...

Do you think this may prevent a few flame outs and the like, improve running??

Thanks

Default check valve

Holds to much tank pressure. Engine will have very inconsistent idle.
