What tank to choose with my mid tank conversion?????

Post by gwalk03 » Fri May 29, 2015 12:23 pm

I just ordered a set of LCG extended TVPs, Savage servo plate, an extended center skid plate, savage motor plate and a set of servo mounts (along with an Alza bulkhead conversion kit.) I have looked and searched tons of threads on the Internet and can not find a list of replacement tanks to order to fix the half tank lean issue and complete the mid tank mod on my HPI Savage X 4.6. I've seen some say to use the Ofna Hyper 7 tank or the Hellfire tank.  For any of you that have used an Fast Lane Machine conversion what tank did you go with?  Also if anyone has any pics or helpful tips I would be very greatful.

Good to know. I've not heard that about the Hyper 7 tank before.

Good luck finding a hellfire tank.....the tank and the body posts ran out real quick coz the savage community ate em' up off the rip LOL. All the PRC carbon fiber chassis guys bought all the body posts, and well the hellfire tank was a real popular HTL mod for both mid-tank/stock tank locations.

I went off squirrelrod's video and copped me a MGT tank:

Here's a link to the tank:
