The only thing worse than Traxxas fuel is old Traxxas fuel.

Actually, Traxxas is far from the worst fuel out there but either way, get some fresh fuel. Old fuel causes nothing but nightmares.

I also like Byrons...

My experience with Traxxas fuel was crappy.. Much too gummy.

I've been running byrons 30% which has performed well in my Go. However yesterday I was out and went to the lhs to get some. They only had 25% so I bought it and ran it. Honestly I did not notice a difference .

Not really that surprising, I'm sure the engine would perform well with 20% in a .21 or .28 engine...you might feel the power difference with 20% but it would save some life on the engine also.
