Nothing was said about what mills you were using.

damn, everytime i have had one get up behind 350* all it was ever any good for was a paperweight at that point regardless of the fuel you use. Not saying your motor isnt fine, i just thought you might have accidently hit the 3 instead of the 2

I would like to thank Byrons for such a good product. I used to be a Werks guy but switched to Byrons because of local availability. I can honestly say that I like the Byrons Gen 2 30% as much as I like the Werks fuel.

We here at Ofna Racing also use Byron's 30% Gen.2 fuel and works great we've been using since the 10th scale On-Road Nationls in Tx. back in Nov. retuning the engine was not a problem and makes more fuel milage, I have to recalculate when I run in buggy. So far I have managed to run almost 9min. on a tank of fuel in my Jammin X1 and a Jammin JPX.21 engine with the tune still at slightly rich setting, a great product for Picco, Hyper and Force line of engines.

Wow DJ, that's a tonne of run time from a Picco. I have pushed a little over 11min in my OS Speed in my RC8.

when I raced on Sat at Hot Rod I lost track of time till I heard Jimmy say the 8:30 mark and i forgot to pit then I was half way around the track when I came into pit and got fuel and no flame out, what was I thinking but i was happy that it did not flame out 8mm carb. vent in the carb and our 063 pipe.

Yeah Ray is a hard one to keep being lap from. I race Ray all the time, and If I only get laped once by him, I'm happy.

And this is at my home track...


Big Thumbs up for the Gen2 3000 here....

i am a serious engine guy , i treat my engines very well and they do the same for me . i have ran 2 gallons of pro 30%nitro , 9% castor blend and have noticed longer run times by about 10-15% , i like the power it makes and it is easy to tune . the only complaint i have is the anti foaming agent that they added that leaves a residual build up inside my engines which leads to premature bearing failure and scored piston and sleeve from build up flaking off while running the engine(i am very finnicky), something that was never a problem with race3000 blend now i have to clean the engines out more often the reason i will continue to use it is better power and more runtime(and the old race3000 isnt available )
