    revo tank

    Hey i'm just curious if anyone on here has ever used the revo fuel tank on their t-maxx. I just took a run to the hobbytown near by and deceided i'd try it out and got it. Looks like any other Buggy or truggy tank. I got the 150cc too! longer run times are always nice!

    I have not heard anyone putting a Revo tank on the T-Maxx. Do it and give us a report with photos of your set-up.

    I have a Revo tank (125cc) on my T-Maxx. I swapped the tank and reciever so the Revo tank is in the right front corner of the chassis.

    I can't add pics right now as Image Shack is blocked here at work. I will try to remember to add them tonight from home.

    I think that will really throw the balance of the truck out of whack. Most of the weight will now be on the right side, without much weight on the other side. That might be a problem.

    Yeah thats a big concern for me. I think i'm gonna rotate it so the tank is facing the front and would be beside the steering servo and put my battery pack on my steering servo or something like that. i'm gonna keep working on it.

    I would try something like this, this is how I set up my tank, its pretty similar to how everyone does the ofna tank, but I drilled a few holes in the body to make refueling much easier and more convenient:
