Where is the crack? On the tank or on the regulator? If it's on the tank, it's done for. If it's on the regulator, buy a new one and get it installed by a professional.

Yep.

How did you crack a CF wrapped tank anyway? Those things are stronger than steel.

If it's a shallow crack only in the clear coat you can try sending it to Crossfire, I know they used to run a service where they would reclearcoat tanks and hydro them for like $50.

Otherwise just buy a new tank. I'd recommend Ninja or Crossfire.

Whoa, whoa. Definitely don't throw it out without getting a knowledgeable person to look at it.
