Exclamation Can you chage the fuel

I went to buy some fuel yesterday and was asked, what was I using, unable to answer the question I asked why he wantted to know. He told me "you cant change the fuel once you start using a particular brand".

Is this true?

you can change fuel when ever you want, but you will have to retune, can be up to a full turn high speed and low speed difference between certain fuels...........

i hate those people in the hobby shops that dont know anything

For christmas my brother (for a present for me) went to hobbytown and asked what parts does he need to make a S-maxx into a T-maxx and he told him that he needed a new chassis, tranny and a whole new front end. all i needed was a diff and some dogbones stupid people

To answer and back up nobike YES you can change fuels just have to tune it to make it run right and there you go, you can also change percentages of nitro but then you really have to retune

Good Luck!

You can change fuel, but do not mix your nitro percentage. If you are running 20% and you go to 30% do not mix the fuel.

Sure you can change fuels!! How are you gonna know what runs the best in your engines? You have to experiment. Just don't mix fuels.

Mind you, you must (I know some are gonna disagree) break in your motor/retune for a couple of tanks with the new fuel. After that, set your needles and go for it.

pinky2252s, the main reason people work at hobby shops is to make money. They were trying to hustle you. You know that!
