Default "HEY THERE", "STRYKER" OWNERS"!!!

I'm putting together a new F-41 stryker, and wanna know what size GAS TANK'S yer using. I was at Rocket City Racing, and saw MANY Dubro tanks. But none of em seemed quite right. I want to hold as much fuel, within reason, so that I won't have to be overly concerned about running otta gas. But I have NO CONCEPT on how much fuel a full/mod G60 is gonna use. I HAVE'NT bolted the engine in yet, cause I'm still waiting on parts. But I figure just offhand that I'll have appx. 5" x 5" x 3"high, in front of the engine betwixt the rails. I also wanna know how yer doin the REFUELING thing. I saw some "FANCY WAZOO" refueling "RIG'S" at RCR also, but wanna see what everyone else is usin. Thanks, Brian

A 12 ouncer like Larry said , or , I , personally always use 16's for gassers .... but thats just a personal preference too .[8D]
The size will all depend on what you want to do . Playboat , then between 12 and 16 , but for racing ... probably one of those 500 ml IV bags . ( or the same for playbaoting or maybe even a 1000 ml , but , I thought they were too big AND I also did not like using the bags verses a fuel cell )

Oh ... one more thing . Make sure that you get one for GAS and NOT nitro . The nitro ones will disintegrate within a 24 hour period if used with gas ... [&o]

Ok boy's, here's the deal. The DuBro 10oz. is 2 1/4 H x 2 9/16 W x 4 7/8 long. The DuBro 16oz. = 2 3/8 H x 2 11/16 W x 5 7/8 long. An that's right from RCR! Will the 16oz. fit? And you have'nt given me any feedback about the refueling thing yet. Brian

First ... there are other brands besides DUBRO for fuel tanks ( like Sullivan - just to name one )
Next ... I use an inline nipple ( cut the fuel line going to the carb from the fuel cell and insert nipple there - anywhere you can easily access it ) and pull off the line to the carb and use a SIX SHOOTER to re-fuel via the carb line disconnected and pumped in that way .
I heard those "fancy" refueling thingy ma jue - jue - whoppers , aren't all that good . Once they get dirt in them , the leak badly ...[&o] ... so ... I avoid them , myself .

Ok T/b, I know there are other tanks out there. DuBro, Sullivan, Hayes, are three, an there's probably a "BOATLOAD"[:@]more of em. Ya gotta realise that right now, I have to rely on the internet, and the help from you guy's to find the parts that I need to complete this project. The only reason I have talked about DuBro so much is, that's the only tank that I've found so far. I need website address's, so that I can find who's sellin these goshfound things! Brian

NOW THATS A REPLY!! Thanks T/b, the only one I did'nt have was rc-speedworld. Everybodys mostly sellin DuBro, but I did see Sullivan w/no pics or measurements @ aeromarine. I'll just have ta bite the bullet, an make a decisiion. probably will be "RCR", cause their real easy ta work with. So ya think I can squeeze that 16oz. in ok, being 5 7/8" long? Brian
