Default Opinions: Byron Originals RACE 20% Fuel

I got this fuel in a local deal. Its Yellow. I know I heard there is some fuel out there thats "not so good". I run an MGT and just got a Nitro 4-Tec. A Buddy just got a New Piston/Rod/Sleeve Kit for his REVO. Will this fuel be "ok" for any or all of these applications? If its "not so good", would it be ok to "mix" it (in very small ratios) with what we usually run (Traxxas 20%)?

Thanks

Byron's fuel is the best IMO. My team has been running it for years.

I've been running it in my CRT .5 (20%) and just switched over my 8itght (30%) to Byrons. All my stuff runs great on it. And they are one of the Sponsors of the NCT so I like to support manufactures that support racers and races.

25% to 20%

Hi,

I have a question here:

What will be the result when changing the nitro percentage from 25% to 20%.
Yes, I'm using Byron 25% and very happy with it.
However, our LHS doesn't have it in stock anymore, only the 20%.

What will happen with the engine, do I need to make it run leaner?
Will the lower nitro percentage changes the running temp?
Will the engine have the same power?

It'll be fine to switch. Just warm the engine up and tune it like normal to the performance normally run at. You probably won't notice much change at all.

Byrons is the best fuel on the market. I've used it for well over 3 1/2 years not 1 issue.

Default Cool!!!!

I ran my 4-Tec today, once with the Traxxas Fuel Ive been running, then a tank of the Byrons. No Tuning before, or after switch. I havent tuned the car at all, I just got it. I could actually tell the difference. Seemed to have a little more power. Thanks for the "endorsement" info Guys!!!

byron A+++++.

I ran o'donnell for years and have several engines (JP's and Rody's) rusted even though I use after run oil. After switch to Byron, no problem. Several of my friends also switched. In the beginning, the engine felt a little sluggish, but after getting used to it, I don't feel any difference.

I run byron's 25% race blend. Excellent stuff.

Let us know how going from 25% to 20% works out for ya. I am thinking of doing the same .

Byrons by me too. I have noticed more longevity. (Is that a word?) With a different brand of fuel my engines didn't seem to last as long as they should. I switched just to try it and I'm happy. That's all I'm saying. lol
