I'll buy two of each set:
2 ea. .010 Carb body and tank.
2 ea. .020 Carb body and tank.
I reeeaaalllyyy prefer bare metal.
But if I have to, I'll buy all red parts.

Hi Bernie back on Thursday I asked about the weight, did you find out the gram weight of the .020 fuel tank yet?
Also per your stats it has holds 60% more fuel volume, how many cc?

Not rushing, but are you going to be taking pre-paid orders for those aluminum .010 carb bodies Bernie? Thanks!

In the meantime we have decided to stock the carb bodies, so no need to preorder / prepay.

Just got an answer on the .010 tank; 6.7 gr. without the mounting screws. No answer yet on weight for .020 tank and, yes the backplate is bigger (should be getting dimensions shortly).

Don't know about the volumes; he just said 60% bigger. Best is to wait until we actually have the product; that way we can better address any questions.

Big question is colour. Get everything in silver? Or 1/2 silver, 1/2 anodized?

Tank weights without the screws are:

010: 6.7gr
020: 10.5gr

Here are also the mounting dimensions. Tanks are now going to anodizing and will the be shipped to us.

Bernie, taking your dimensions and estimating a 2.5 mm wall thickness for the .020 Tee Dee tank, I come up with an estimate of 5 cc's, not bad.

You're welcome, Bernie and yes. What that tells me is the original capacity of the .020 Tee Dee tank is 3 cc's. Assuming a 2 mm tank wall thickness, my .010 Tee Dee estimate for the newly machined tank is 2.8 cc's. If same 60% oversized estimate, then the .010 Tee Dee tank must be around 1.8 cc's.

For a better answer, would it be possible to get that info from the maker? Smile

They are on their way from Vancouver to us and should arrive in a day or two bounce

Once listed, we will advise. Because of substantial pre-orders, we have doubled our own order and there should be enough to go around.

The parts arrived today and they are waaayyyyy better than anticipated. Absolutely stunning and well-made. 7gr for the 010 version and 10gr for the 020 version.

Will try to get them listed today.
