The correct quote in context is below, and is correct. I tune to performance, smoke and heat temps are only refferences.

"Some people make an error and tune for only smoke coming from the pipe, I have been able to get 350 head temps and it still smoke like a motor than was running 150. Tuning for smoke is not suggested with this fuel. I run a Jammin .21 plus, that is on its 9th gallon, and get about 10 minute runtimes avg. with head temps about 210, depending on weather and such.

That being said, I have had a few people that tune strictly on smoke and have worn out the piston and sleeve because of it being to lean. They were really lean 12-18 hours leaner from the previous fuel they used. Castor and Synthetic oil have a flashpoint within a few degrees of each other, it is just the type of oil difference that causes the smoke difference."

Try this and you will see the reasoning behind it, take 3 tbsp of castor oil and 3 tbsp of a synthetic oil. Both have a similar flashpoint, but the synthetic will take longer to burn and have a thicker, richer smoke. I am sure this being RCTech this will be taken out of context as well, but I try.

PS You can make that 10 1/2 gallons now.

Just to let everyone know,

I have the following Torco and VSR Products in house that have been tried by local racers with great results.

Torco Air Filter oil - super tacky, cleans very well

Torco Moto Prep - a polymer coating, that protects chassis and components, makes for easy clean up and does not evaporate from the surface or wash of with water.

Torco Chain Lube - Great for CVD's and ring and pinions in RC cars. Power Slide® Chain Lube is an MPZ® formulated lubricant with extreme wear and rust protection chemistry. Quickly penetrates deep into bushings, pins, bearings and rollers then sets to a stable grease that will not fling off or melt under high temperature conditions. Designed to exceed the demands of high performance and racing conditions.

Torco MPZ Lube - an all round lube, great for hinge pins etc...

Torco Brake and Contact cleaner - A Non-Chlorinated cleaner, plastic safe and will not damage radio trays, plastics etc... More economical and a better value than Nitro Cleaners.

VSR Screw kits, 1/8 Metric, 1/8 Standard, 1/10 Metric, 1/10 Standard --- great all purpose kits, that include more of what you need and a bottle of VSR screw glue. ON SALE --- $20.00 PER KIT

VSR Wheel Nuts - premium 1/8 scale wheel nuts, anodized in red, blue or black. Available in Ofna thread and Losi, Assoc, HB etc thread. ON SALE --- $10.00 PER SET.

All of this stuff is in stock and ready for local delivery or shipment, Case order discounts available.

For orders of 12 or more cases, I will give you Jobber pricing.

That is almost 35% in some cases off of retail.

Wether it is RC fuel, motor oil, transmission fluid, gear oil or any of the sprays. This is a huge savings.
