Two hoses are to make fueling faster? Or is one a breather to help flow easier?

One hose is the vent/breather.


Fuel goes into the bottom and vents out of the top

And back to the top of the tank on top of the chase truck. It all goes together to create pressure. We'll be able to dump 60+ gallons in well under 2 minutes

Does it count if you used to be on a team?
Chase Motorsports
BITD
Currently runnin 6195
5095/5001
we ran 2 1500 cars sporting 1595 numbers and 195 for SCORE

General team fuck up and tire mounter, fuel guy, prep, chase truck driver, Taco Bell getter.

Had to stop getting involved once team drama escalated and the icing on the cake was moving 40 miles away.

Definitely miss it.

Oh that’s pretty smart to have it vent back up to the fueling tank to create pressure. That’s pretty fast fueling speeds!

We at Sherpa Equipment Co. are in the early stages of building our 4600 car to race in the Ultra4 series as well as Dirt Riot and more.

Our Team name is Sherpa Motorsports and our cars number will be 4628. We are building out a 4th Gen Toyota 4Runner with the 2uzfe V8.

Our current sponsor list though growing
- Marlin Crawler Yes, that means RCLT FUN
- PRP Seats
- Switch - Pros
- Colorado Water Jet
- Front Range Powder Coating

OUR TEAM
We at Sherpa Motorsports have a great community of friends and family who want to help us build this car to be one of the most capable and tough 4th gens out there. We have a dedicated pit crew who is chomping at the bit to help build, prep and maintain the race car for the upcoming race season and seasons to come.​

Cameron, Noah, and Nick have been in and around Toyota’s from an early age. These guys are truly the ones who can fix just about anything themselves. With years of employment in different auto repair/off-road shops, we couldn’t be more excited to have these guys rounding out our pit team.

Looking forward to dualing 4th gens running similar suspensions. Dude last year was the one that destroyed the rclt kit by snapping the steering heim off the spindle. Hoping to have a job and vacation time lined up so I can spend the whole week at KOH this time..

Yea Steel City did a great job bringing some attention to the IFS platform in 4600 last year. The changes from v1 RCLT to now v3 are pretty intense. We are really excited to put it to the test.
