Has anyone noticed that Torco smells really cool, or is it just me and my weird tastebuds. (As smoke on the track, not as fruit punch in the bottle)

Default fuel

Motors blow on any fuel, it is a fact our motors spin 40,000 rpm. I have over 10 gallons of Torco on my OPS SFV21B and it still runs like new.

very true..... only the bad gallon killed my motor. Different jug different results... I burned 4 more gallons from a totally different case AFTER the killed motor incident and it ran GREAT. It was the one gallon with no oil spilled on the label that was bad, but i dont think we need to revisit that conversation again do we?

here is some info for ya!

running my d8 today i went ahead and ran three major brands of fuel i have always ran

First up was a tank to tune od to the grenade tuned it perfect to 230 on the dot

refilled it and started the stop watch and started racing around my back yard track

she died 6.5 mins in.

Next up was morgan fuels aka sidewinder

tuned it for the first tank got her perfect again 230 on the dot!

filled the tank up and started racing around again

she made it 8.45 mins

last two tanks were torco

got her tuned in perfect again 230 (only had to lean the low end needle two hours)

and full tank off i went she died at 12.55

and the engine temps at the end of the run were 235 for oddonnel 237 for sidewinder and 224 for torco!

i can go leaner on the engine up to 265 and be happy with 13 mins a tank!
