Besides the Savages and the BAJA this little 1/10 scale Associated SC10-GT2 screams in the Dunes with Paddles on. Fused two fuel tanks together with J.B. Weld and doubled the run time. Has a TIGER DRIVE for starting and I Modded the Body so I can Fuel up without having to take the body off.

Surprised JB Weld stuck to the tank. I tried fixing a crack in a few with JB and it would never adhere properly. Even after cleaning with DA and roughing it up with fine sand paper.

That's exactly what I did Except both tanks where brand new, patched the old tank when I first got the Buggy as had crack in it only difference is I used Berryman Carb cleaner it takes off the oil from fuel. Note don't use Brake cleaner !!

Well olds I guess you were right , Ran maybe 3 tanks through the Buggy and the JB Weld let go. I had used the Original JB Weld , Found something from Loctite that's for "Plastics" . Before I roughed tanks up a little ,this time I hit hard with some old 80 Grit and used the
Plastic Bonder after cleaning with Carb cleaner. Will give update after I let it cure and run the Buggy again.
