Just because some hobby shops still have old stock does not mean they can replace it. Hopefully all this will blow over soon.

Wow, can people not read? There is a shortage. Like someone else posted, the shops that still have it, at that low price, are selling old stock.

If the NHRA is having issues, what in the world makes you think the hobby won't? They pay, and are willing to pay much more $$$ that you and I are willing. They have a shortage.

I talked to a few fuel companies. They are still getting fuel, but the cost is much higher now. The cost to get it shipped has gone up. That will make its way to you, the consumer. Math 101

Then these people that mix it still have stock. Not everyone is going to run low at the same time.

I have planned ahead, just got a case to get me through the onroad nats.

Here is a email from Traxxas, to a customer:

Hello Mike,

There is indeed a huge nitro shortage. All nitro production is done in
China and they have closed most of their industry down to clean up the air
for the upcoming Olympics. We have discontinued production of 33% as a
result and the prices of 10% and 20% are going up. I doubt it will be over
$50 per gallon though. $45 is likely more accurate for 20%.


Best regards,
xxxxxxxx
