How do I fix my Nitro car rc tank?

My RC tank has a 1 inch crack were the fuel line attaches.  It leaks faster than the engine can demand it.  I can't seem to fix it i've tried 3 things like: taking a soldering iron and running it over the crack didn't work, Hot glue over crack-didn't work, teflon tape around it the kind with the adhesive on it.  All of those things the Nitro fuel de-solved it in about 10 hours. I am running 20% nitro.  I have already ordered a new tank on eBay. it's just I need it fixed by friday for a race.  The new gas tank hasn't been shipped yet it is coming from Pennsylvania I live in Utah also shipped USPS parcel post please help!! if there is a product out there or any thing that will work. Thanks

Go to a local hobby shop and get a tube of 'hot fuel proof glue' not hot glue. Hot fuel proof glue is resistant nitro fuel. It isn't a permanent fix but you should be able to get a few hours running time out of it.
