tanks don't suffer lean problems...

The tank may not be getting pressurized right which means less fuel gets into the air mixture at the carb. and the engine could run lean. doesn't the revo come with a 150cc or 175cc tank? two 75cc tanks would only be 150cc same as the stock revo tank... maybe i'm wrong

Thx for you reply, the revo comes with 125cc stock, iam gonna use 2 engines however and I do not want to use two big tanks but 2 smaller 75cc instead.

Iam not competent enough on engines to answer that, I have seen that the gigacrusher uses one big tank with 2 separate chambers, I suppose they have a reason for it.

Anyone know what would happen if I use 2 Y connecttors instead?

hmmm, Thinking about it... To try I would make sure I had both pressure lines into the 1 tank and 2 single lines going to the tank 1 for each motor.. I think using a T would restrict fuel flow and the same for the pressure lines..

But i've never done anything like this before, Just thinking on how I would approach it if I did

You should check out how the nitro pull trucks do it.

I've seen 4 engines on a pull truck I wonder how they do it

gustaf, they also make "Y" fittings that will flow alot better than a "T" fitting. i would use one tank. 75 cc tank will not be enough to warm up the engine and tune. get a 250 cc and let both engines share. check out dubro on tower hobbies for the fittings.
