Default easy change fuel line?

So its good to replace your fuel tubing every once and a while to make sure there is no leaks. But on my Losi 8ight fuel tank it is a pain to change fuel line because you have to pull out old fuel line completely out of tank and force new line into the tank, attach clunk filter inside the tank (pain) etc. So I found this little connector that supposedly is for a Hotbodies D8 that attaches to the fuel tank side and has a nipple that the fuel line easily attaches to, which seems to me like it would make it very simple to replace fuel hose.

What do you guys think? Would this work for my 8ight buggy??

ps. I have already ordered this so if nobody knows the outcome, I guess I will be the first to try, lol

Default RE: easy change fuel line?

I don't see any reason why not, I mean if the threads are the same size, it should be the same thing as just feeding tubing through. Just gotta make sure its nice and sealed though.
