It was $51.90 shipped.
I was able to order over the phone
Form Steven @ Billet Designs.
Selling point to me is 170cc
because I run a Picco .26 maxx
and fuel does not last long.
And it also is very sharp to look at.

Hey I always wondered about these tanks. How do you know when it is getting low, do you have to run by time?

Look at the first set of pics I posted.Notice the fuel tubing
The tank has pressure ports top and bottom so the fuel line acts like
a sight gauge so you know how much fuel is in it at all times.
That was one of the reasons I bought it.

Plasma 327, Thanks for the plug on the Fuel Tank. I noticed that acexxxoasis mentioned the tank as looking "very sweet very tall though". I thought that I would post a ref. pic. to show the height difference between our 140cc TMAXX tank that has an provision for an EZ start... It's the same height and foot print as the 170cc tank.

Thanks, Steven

Default RE: T-Maxx 170cc Billet Design Fuel Tank

Hey guys, Iknow this is an old post but I just realized that Ihave a cracked gas tank on my tmaxx. I tried using epoxy to patch it up, but that only worked for about two runs. So I decided that I need to invest in an alumium tank but Iam trying to decide between the one by RDLogics and Billet Design. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know if the RDlogics tank is 170 cc and fits with the stock chassis?

Thanks for your help!
