Have you ever had that "Surely I can be out of fuel already" feeling?


Well after bashing at Brisbane Dirt Racing for an hour this afternoon, I did. The Picco was doing an amazing job of pushing the Savage clear of the huge table top on the front straight, unfortunately I didn't always land it as well as I should have.


This is why I used so much fuel on the last lap....








It's amazing to think you can flex the truck so much that the shocks will smash the tank. Anyway - off to get a new tank.


Regards,


Chris

I can't say I've had that feeling, but I was suffering from "Surely there should be more compression..."


I think that's 5 one way bearings in as many litres and one head shim down this afternoon.

Chris,


I know what you mean about that flex in the body... I keep getting two holes in my bodies just behind the engine. They have to come from the top of the shock towers but there is no way I can see how they can flex THAT far to do the damage!


Now if you bought the new twin engine truckzilla kit you wouldn't have this problem... it doesn't have fuel tanks.

at least you did a good job of it!! I can only manage to crack tanks

Well (from experience) you can easily do that if you turn your shock bolt around

I can only manage to crack tanks aswell. I have managed to " plastic
weld " both of my tanks up using a gas soldering iron and a cable tie
as a " filler rod " i.e. melting the plastic along the crack and adding
some cable tie. I havent filled it with fuel and bashed yet BUT I have
pressurised them im a bucket of water and I saw no air bubbles, will
let you know how they go !
