Serpent Fuel tanks & Shaped tank seal

Serpent Fuel tanks & Shaped tank seal

Serpent have introduced a new seal for their AFL fuel tank lid that prevents leakage and thus provides more consistent engine performance. Made from rubber, the new seal has been shaped to create a perfect seal around the opening of the tank and allowing the tank lid to close fully. Both the 1/8th and 1/10th scale fuel tanks have also been updated, to both include the new lid seal but also have been made from a newer stronger material. The milky white coloured tanks will now have more resistance to shattering in the event of a heavy impact and changes to the lid pivot pin position further ensure a perfectly sealed tank. Both new tanks come supplied with a 50cm length of clear fuel tubing, as well as fuel nipples and grub screw for AFL lid.
