lol shouldent be anything in the tubes, its a gold thing inside the tank, it does come standard, but its not a good one, i was gonna buy one, but i forgot, and now i forgot which one it was, and if that fuel filter seeps man take it back, or check what gauge fuel line it was built for because it shouldent do that at all, and if you do put another filter in, dont try to take the one in the tank out, its impossible with out breaking the fuel tank, there was a post about this befor the forums got upgraded.

i have one :P, i think that its not so much the diff that's screwing up, but what its sitting on, and wats holding the belt in place, id try MAYBE glueing the diff fence's on, and the bearings that they have that sit on the diff to make it roll smooth, they are good bearings but they arnt the best, i got extra high clearince bearings, at 15 bux a pop LOL, they are 1 hell of a lot smoother, and thats compairing them to the PRO diff that i just got, also make sure you got alloy diffmounts, as expencive as they are, they do make a difference.

also seal the holes in your chassy with duct tape, stones dont get caught in there for very long and you dont notice them, but they do get there, tear at the teeth on your diff pully, and then fall out, so it screws it.

We talked about this in an earlier post but I thought I would show you what I got in my replacement screw kit for the fusion. It arrived today and I was really impressed, I have replacments for all screws on my fusion and no longer will need to order bits and pieces here and there. All the screws etc are stainless steel and very good quality.

The link for this product is : http://www.jespares.com/catalog/index.php ,just look in the stainless steel screw kits section under Schumacher and you will find it.(also it has good section on the benefits of this upgrade and many other products to browse as well. The customer service is great and I have had a very quick response to any questions. Anyway I think it was a wise purchase and now when I lose a screw I will not have to wait a couple of days for a replacement to arrive. They also do a screw kit for the menace.

Sirus they also have an excellent allen driver set which is much better to use than allen keys. Also they are an excellent price compared to other name brands.

Ok I have finally got my fusion back together and the forecast looks reasonable for the weekend so hopefully I will give it a run. Thought you guys might like to see some photos. If you want any info re the cooling head send me a PM and I will send you the details for the supplier. I got it from America and a bit cheaper than getting it from the UK. Anyway I would be pleased to hear any opinions on what you think of it now and if you have any more ideas for improvements or tips for running etc. If you are intersted in a boost bottle for your fusion or menace I have one for sale at: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category =19168&item=5956299902&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW
