Default Motor coloration

Hi

I seem to have noticed that some parts of my motor are now colored? I started running Jets 25% nitro fuel (red in color), and, peeking through the exhaust port, I noticed that the top of the piston is orange/red...

Does it matter if components start changing color?

Should I switch to O'donnell's?

Thx.

Color change does not hurt it. Sidewinder does the same thing. As long as you're tuned properly your engine will be fine.
