Default Fuel & Pressure Line

My buddy took his t-maxx to our lhs and they saw that he had ran longer fuel and pressure line they told him that it needed to come off, that it would cause problems down the road.Does anyone know this for a fact! From all the stuff i've read from the forums, alot of people are doing it-does anyone have any input?

Well, obviously somone dosn't know what they are talking about. I went to one of my LHS's and the guy suggested that I do it. At another LHS, the guy said it was bad for the engine. So, as I stated, somone dosn't know what the heck they are talking about.

I'm sure juslike everything else, it has its pros and cons. What that is, you should ask each guy at the different LHS. All people have different opinions on how to do fixes on different problems.

I don't know about problems it can create but I know a few it will fix. First the longer fuel line will give you extra run time while upside down, and also let you get it away from the motor head, to keep the fuel inside a cooler temp and reduce the possibility of vapor lock. And the longer pressure line will give you more dead space to build equal pressure to keep your fuel from foaming in the tank, and also let the air in the line cool to also prevent vapor lock. Thats just my two cents.
