    Anybody have any suggestions on what to use? Saw someone used funnels, but I couldn't find any that worked. Maybe I am just going to the wrong stores.

    Hey Darth Mule,

    I was asking this same question a couple of weeks ago.
    I found a couple of old threads here that suggested using
    a certain cone-shaped spray bottle, like the kind you find
    near the cosmetics aisle at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, etc.

    I looked around and found a near-perfect spray bottle at K-
    Mart. It needs to be shortened from the wide/base end, but I
    think it will work very well. I'll find out in a couple of
    weeks when I'm ready to add those to my arena jet pack.

    Here's a related question... what's the best part to use
    BETWEEN the thrusters and the bottom of the fuel tanks? I
    like what SEEKER has, but I have no idea what they are.

    The ones I have are from some type of air freshner cone. I'm not sure of the brand because I bought them from snake fett

    Yup, I used air freshner cones. I think renuzit has them. Just cruise the air freshner isle and you will find them.

    Yeah... Renuzit is the one.

    Too curved for my tastes though. I think the thrusters
    should have a straight angled taper. Whaddaya all think?

    I used air fresheners as well. I got them at a &#36;.99 store. They work great. I have seen them used on some Boba packs. They would work for the arena style as well.
