Default Rocket Science fuel, who's running it?

Anyone running this stuff? PM me, I've got a few questions for you.

I personally like it. I have ran 3 gallons and will be buying more. I ran Odonnel before. If you have any questions let me know. I will try to help.

Mike, ygpm.


I also ran Odonnell and had very good luck with it. I actually had a sponsored driver sell me his Sirio .21 because he couldnt keep it running with his "precious metal" fuel. I ran 3 quals and a 45 A Main with the engine with no problems at all.

I have gone through 4 gallons so far this year.
IN 5 different engines. from my truggy .28 to my sitio .12
no problems at all.
Before, I would only run O'donnell.
The only thing I don't like, is it is clear, and at night it is hard to see the fuel when pitting.

Thumbs up Rocket Science supported......

Run 5 drops of food coloring per gallon to get the color you want. I usually run green to diffrentiate it from other fuels on the pit bench and also the fuel tank. It does work quite well.
It is amazing running this stuff side by side with other fuels. It makes a ton of power and the motor stays 20 -25 degrees cooler for the given power.
Rocket Science all the way for the T&T crew!

Default Fuel to race with!

I race On-Road 1/8 scale around the country and the top three fuels most run to protect their engines and make great HP are:

Rocket Science
Tornado
Losi (New Blend)

By far, the Rocket Science and Tornado are the best fuels available. All fuels can be run, but protection of the motor is key for what I race and should be for most with engines being so expensive.

one Note: Break-in engines with 20% Byrons or something similar. RS and Tornado are so good at protecting the engines, it takes 16 to 20 tanks to break-in motor instead of 8 t0 10 with Byron's.

I used to run the Rocket Science and loved it but it is tough to get here in Indiana.

Same here... I ran it in Atlanta, but our LHS couldn't keep it in stock.

It was great stuff. I'd run it again in a heartbeat if I could find a place that sells it in Tampa, FL.

It seems that their distribution network/channels need a lot of work though!

I live in Kansas and run it. I am the only guy in the state that runs it. I just call Tommy and place an order. I order it by the quarts because of the shipping costs for gallons. I cant remember exactly how much it was but it was like 70 to 80 bucks or something like that for a case of Quarts which has 3 gallons not 4. For myself however I have to drive 50 miles each way to get odonnel or any other fuel anyways. So when I figure my gas money and time it actually is cheaper for me to get Rocket Science delivered.
